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

    Disapproves of CEO

    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 Management

    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.

    I have been working at Goodrich full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Management was eager to gather input from employees Culture was one of teamwork and open thinking Benefits were outstanding (health, retirement, etc)

    Cons

    Goodrich was acquired by United Technologies UTC changed many of the positives from the Goodrich culture by implementing their own polices/procedures

    Advice to Management

    The UTC management that is now in place does not care about the lower level employees opinions/thoughts. Management should be making some attempt to involve actual employees in the change process instead of implementing and then forcing it on them.

    Pros

    Working at Goodrich gave employees a sense of pride. They were very good at keeping growth conservative so that their workforce was not subject to multiple layoffs.

    Cons

    Sadly, Goodrich was acquired in 2012.
