    I have been working at Goodrich full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Salary and benefits and people

    Cons

    Way too much non value added pressures flow down from the top. Many fire drills keep employees from actually getting any meaningful work done. Micromanaged from the very top and to the nth degree. It has become so absolutely ridiculous, and the stress is not sustainable!
    Plus, when someone leaves, they will not replace them, so the rest of us salaried people get to donate more of our time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get a clue. You're employees are miserable! Try implementing ROWE. Try trusting the people you pay to get the work done and get out of their hair.

    Former Employee - Intern Engineer

    I worked at Goodrich as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Good, predictable hours, opportunity for suggesting improvement.

    Cons

    Very 5S / organization intensive culture to the point of irritating some less organized (but hard-working and effective) employees. Can be difficult to see the "big picture" as a subcontractor. Some machinists didn't realize how critical their work was and how easily parts can be scrapped from "slight" damage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Discuss issues with employees more often. Don't stay bunkered inside your office for weeks on end.

    Pros

    Pre UTC -cpeople, culture, leadership

    Cons

    UTC does not seem to value IT staff with few exceptions

  8.  

    Probably the worst company that I have ever worked for. They definitely do not care about their employees.

    Pros

    The best part about is traveling to other locations and getting to see different parts of the world.

    Cons

    Salary, micromanaging, and the corporate culture is just awful. Feel like a number here and not a person.

    I worked at Goodrich full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Really easy to just fit in and coast. Do an average to slightly below average job and you'll never get fired or reprimanded and still collect your salary.

    Cons

    Even as a top performer, my responsibilities and day-to-day tasks never changed from the day I started, and I was there longer than 5 years. My career never progressed, and I'm pretty sure I became a worse engineer. As you can imagine, I became incredibly good and efficient at the things I did every single day for 5+ years; however, my salary never changed. Over those 5+ years, salary increased a total of 3.5%.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to management: There are too many of you. 3/4 of the company are managers. Managers to manage managers and managers above them. You're so top heavy, it's not surprising all of your programs fail to meet schedule and budget. There's no one left to perform any actual work.

    Pros

    Great work atmosphere with emphasis on continuous improvement, and a family friendly philosophy.

    A lot of dead weight in certain areas due to good-ole-boy relationships.
