    I have been working at Esterline full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Coworkers are genuine and kind with a general closeness and fun loving atmosphere. Managers are hit and miss across the company.

    Cons

    The processes are broken. It's that simple. The machinery is antiquated and the methods of production are from a time long since dead in modern manufacturing.

    Advice to Management

    Modernize the work space and reduce turn over. Promote a "family atmosphere" with expectations and people will respond positively.

    The pay seems well, but standing for eight hours a day isn't worth it, I think.

    I have been working at Esterline full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I get paid. That's about all I enjoy $10 an hour seems great to me, since I am a teenager,

    Cons

    I have to stand eight hours a day building parts, wearing out my hands and legs. People get super exhausted. I graduated high school so I wouldn't end up working in a factory like my family and I am current attending college as well and look at where I ended up. I need a new job fast!

    I worked at Esterline full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    has good working environment with many years working people, very clean instalasiones, extra time employee of the month, they are very careful with the personal safety of its employees

    Cons

    in the area of engineering they need more trained and experienced to review it and give wings other areas support staff, security and internal theft

    Advice to Management

    They must comensar a replacement on the welding point, and the whole production team, and train young jente wings for replacement on people who are to retire

    I have been working at Esterline full-time

    Pros

    defined schedule and a lot of "guidance" benefits are decent even though they don't contribute to the HDHP. management is very firm on objectives and clear with the direction of where they are taking the company. This doesn't necessarily mean they will get there...

    Cons

    a lot of guidance. unrealistically long hours. inequity among expectations unfortunately the burden of compliance is an overarching and hinders making progress. The compliance managers appear inept and have no management experience. they are struggling to navigate through the troubled waters.

    Advice to Management

    get a clue about the real situation of your organization. don't believe what everyone is telling you and spend sometime back in the trenches to see what is really happening.

    Pros

    You can wear whatever you like to work

    Cons

    Low morale of the employees Backstabbing in the norm here High employee turnover Inefficient systems Terrible corporate culture Top management has iron fist strategy; employees get blamed and humiliated for problems daily Poor senior management

    Advice to Management

    Needs improvement but, iron fist is not the solution. Stop listening to backstabbers and stop blaming employees for systematic issues You want $$, invest in human capital as well.
