    Pros

    Coworkers were a good group of people. Those who actually touched an aircraft had high integrity. Decent pay, good benefits.

    Cons

    Managers had unreasonable demands when deadlines were near. Thinly veiled demands to get it out on time regardless of safety or legality.

    Advice to Management

    Stop requiring inspectors to oversee every single step of a technicians' operational checks. Stop adding layers of paperwork to track paperwork that is already tracked. It's not helping avoid errors. Look back to the days when things worked and do things that way again.

    Pros

    The work/life balance is good. The pay and benefits are good.

    Cons

    In Engineering at the Appleton site you get stuck pretty quickly as to how far you can advance on the technical side

    Advice to Management

    At the sites outside of Savannah there needs to be a way to advance as an engineer, I have seen too many of my friends leave because they had no way to advance their career unless they went to Savannah

    Pros

    The salary compared to local area is good, they provide good benefits, a safe, clean work area, and are a stable employer relative to aerospace industry as a whole.

    Cons

    Limited opportunity for advancement at satellite locations (outside Savannah). If you don't work at the parent site, you are a second class citizen within the company, with pay and opportunity accordingly. They do promote from within, but not as a rule.

    Advice to Management

    Allow employees some room to apply their skills. Drop the lean where you know it doesn't make sense.
