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

    Pros

    Excellent internship where I was treated professionally and was allowed to expand my knowledge in my field of study. Supportive team members and flexible work schedule.

    Cons

    Management doesn't have a lot of time to help you in day-to-day duties. Once a week status meetings are the norm so you sometimes have to create work for yourself in order to stay busy.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits. GM was easy to work for and good hard working people.

    Cons

    Small company and understaffed. Inability to grow the CNC machining business is resulting in the closing of the Fort Worth, Texas facility in 2014. Expectations of hours to work not conveyed well and work/home life suffers

    Work normal hours and staff correctly to support business needs and home life of employees

    I have been working at LMI Aerospace

    Pros

    There is a concern for people throughout the organization. An apolitical organization compared to others I've seen. People are generally interested in doing the best possible job and are concerned for the company's interest, and I believe that upper management does care for the employees.

    Cons

    Benefits are mediocre or below. Many of the practices are old fashioned and not in line with current thinking. Sometimes there's not a lot of room for outside ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LMIA is in a position of becoming a large, diversified company. Different practices and management styles are needed than were in order when it was a $25 million metal fabricator. Focus on operational efficiencies and up-to-date manufacturing thought.

    Pros

    Size of company allows individual to do many things, make a real contribution. Family-like atmosphere. Senior management seems to genuinely care for the employees. Encourages good work-life balance. Company is very committed to community involvement.

    Cons

    No opportunity for advancement beyond current position. Benefits are below average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to ideas that come from outside of the company. In recent years, many people with experience at other successful companies have joined LMI, and LMI has a great opportunity to learn new ways of doing things.
