    Pros

    It was close to my house. So on commuting time it was excellent.

    Cons

    Did not receive any feedback from the supervisor. It was a temporary position. After working there for three months it would have been good to have received some feedback. It was only a three month assignment.

    Advice to Management

    Some feedback would have been nice. For temporary assignments, three months should be enough time to decide whether the candidate would be a good fit for the organization.

    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.

    Pros

    Interesting products, good people, pretty good benefits.

    Cons

    Immature processes, ineffective leadership, no vision for the future, just trying to meet monthly sales goals. Little to no opportunities for growth unless you are willing to relocate to undesirable locations.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a roadmap to show where the company is headed and how technological improvements will be integrated over time.

    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 Management

    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.


  11. It was a very good experience, the company overall seemed to support its employees.

    Pros

    There were a lot of opportunities for professional growth.
    Fellow employees were friendly and willing to assist with questions or guidance.
    Benefits were good and competitive.

    Cons

    As with any large organization many in middle management positions seem to stay employed regardless of their effectiveness as a manager.
    Goodrich was purchased by United Technologies.
    UTC's initial layoffs seemed to be based on some calculation for cost cutting with little influence of how valuable and contributing of an employee is.
    Benefits are in process of being reduced.

    Advice to Management

    Employee loyalty and commitment is a valuable commodity and creates a highly productive and efficient organization.
