    Many good people that work hard and respect each other's ability to contribute.

    I worked at Labinal full-time

    Pros

    Mostly a "hands off" approach to management, supported by very talented and hard working employees. Very good "team" atmosphere.

    Cons

    Taking on too much of the parent company's corporate rhetoric. Becoming less personable and more "propagandized" through HR publications and corporate "workshops".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop talking about and promoting "Communication" as a tool, and actually just communicate. People can get the Google version of the state of the company from the internet, more honest communication on a daily basis in conversations and staff meetings are really what employees are looking for.

    I have been working at Labinal full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Average compensation. Nice facility and great people to work with. Very close to home. Absolutely no work life balance-not sure they have heard about that..

    Cons

    Reading through the reviews and company responses are very interesting. When we were labinal in the beginning we were talked to like actual people. The company responses are indicative of the problems now. They talk to us generically with corporate and hr lingo that doesn't mean anything.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Manage the business and stop with all the corp communication. I am so tired of hearing about Safran and Labinal Power Systems. Talk to me about Labinal Denton.

    Interesting job but also a dead end job, poor management from senior levels

    I have been working at Labinal full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Insurance, decent vacation time. good job for someone not looking to stay very long.

    Cons

    Pay isn't that great. Starting pay isn't too bad but after 15 years, should be better. Never heard of a place that doesn't offer a pay raise for quality inspectors. Dead end job. management does not build from within (unless you are their buddy). If you are too efficient at assembly, don't expect to do anything else. management's attitude towards employees brings down morale. Unfair performance incentives and recognition. Been losing money last ten years to increased insurance costs, and low or no cost of living increases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give credit to employees that do well, pay more attention to details, be honest with employees. Focus more on training. We are after all building aircraft parts. Quit adding more responsibilities to employees, but expecting them to get the work out faster and cheaper.

    I have been working at Labinal full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Labinal offers average pay and benefits. They spend a lot of money trying to advance their corporate culture and "brand" themselves in the community.

    Cons

    The corporate culture is very difficult to understand. They have campaigns, engagement surveys, etc. To try to proove they care but their actions speak louder and that is f you are not a French male you really do not matter. They spend thousands of dollars relocating French guys and then give us no raises or 2%.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop spending so much money on campaigns and consultants. Give us raises and that will show you care.

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

    Pros

    Co workers were amazing. I really did work with some great people here, the ones originally here when the company was HCM, and there are still a few of them left. The pay is decent. Has a health, dental, partial vision, and 401k plan.

    Cons

    Raises are few and far between. This company, which once prided itself on quality over quantity, now prefer the latter. They have also brought a lot of interns from their corporate office in Mexico, which tend to stay and replace the original people who were there prior to the acquisition of the company. Higher up positions which would have been given to people that have seniority are no longer awarded to them based on experience unless they also have a degree.....if you don't have a college degree don't EVER plan on a promotion, no matter how long your experience in your current position.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the little people, the ones who are actually responsible for getting your product out the door. Also allow experience to be substituted for a college degree.....I believe if you do your job well, that should count for something. In my life experience, years of on-the-job training readies a person far better than a piece of paper.

    Pros

    It would be great if I could think of any positives about the company. The only real positive is there are some really great people stuck here.

    Cons

    The company is always in a mode of putting out fires instead of making long-range plans and operating to them. They also try to do too many large projects at the same time and don't dedicate enough resources so people don't get burned out. Communication is terrible. We never understand what the French parent company wants.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit spending money on trying to make us like Safran and give us some larger increases.
