    Pros

    Engineering employees were very serious about following engineering processes. The employees had a professional attitude and mutual respect in the work place.

    Cons

    Goodrich Cargo Systems is located in Jamestown, ND. If you're used to a larger city it can seem a little secluded.

    Former Employee - Embedded Software Engineer  in  Burnsville, MN
    Former Employee - Embedded Software Engineer in Burnsville, MN

    I worked at Goodrich full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Flexible schedule
    - People philosophy
    - Benefits (at least while still it was Goodrich)
    - Tuition reimbursement
    - Lots of career advancement opportunity
    - Great group of people
    - Appreciation lunches and recognition dinners
    - Product worked on, the smart probe was a great starting point in my career.
    - Learned a lot about the Aerospace industry and seems like the way to go for me
    - A lot of talented people
    - People willing to go above the call of duty to help out!!! (I miss them all already)

    Cons

    - Schedules not realistic
    - A lot of late nights/weekends (expected)
    - Raises are mediocre
    - Office politics
    - Too much focus on things that need improvement vs. successful accomplishments throughout the year on performance review
    - Too much paperwork (not just here, everyone has to comply to FAA/EASA)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Become involved in all projects, not just the one's that are behind. One of the reasons I left was because I felt left out, and the work I was doing as not important. Become more aware of people's accomplishments along with things they can improve on. Kinda feel that the negative outshines the positive accomplishments.

    Current Employee - Intern in Chula Vista, CA

    I have been working at Goodrich as an intern for more than a year

    Pros

    The intern program here was excellent, I actually felt like I was doing something beneficial to the company as a whole and I really felt my opinion mattered.

    Cons

    They tended to favor students with engineering backgrounds, which I unfortunately lacked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the intern program going, even with the buy out and UTAS, I think it's a worthwhile program and really helped peak my interest in your company.
