    It was a great learning experience with great people to work with

    Manufacturing Engineer (Former Employee)
    Provo, UT

    ProsMy managers were great and were interested in making sure I improved and could learn where needed. Training was important. It was a good mix of R&D and production which kept me on my toes as well as having a variety of responsibilities where I didn't have to sit at my desk all day nor was I expected to.

    ConsThe location was not growing as quickly as I would have liked and there wasn't much chance for advancement. There was high turnover on the shop floor, which is to be expected to some extent.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHelp the employees feel more appreciated and help them grow and learn and feel fulfilled.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    High turnover, low morale

    (Former Employee)
    Carson, CA

    ProsSpacious cubicles, clean restrooms, decent break rooms. Great starter job/space filler job but if you are a skilled professional you may find that your skill set will deteriorate here.

    ConsLow wages for aerospace industry
    Extremely high turnover
    Competent, capable employees move on to better opportunities elsewhere
    A lot of favoritism and promotions are based on popularity instead of merit
    HR is incompetent and plays a major role in the largely dysfunctional workforce.
    No clear vision, direction, or corporate structure
    No training and antiquated business processes

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe high turnover rate is a clear indicator that you are not attracting and retaining quality talent. Examine your HR team and practices and implement new strategies to fill your ranks with competent, capable workers/management that will benefit the company.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Top-heavy, arrogant company

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsSome of the people are nice to work with and the benefits package is pretty good. That's about it, though.

    ConsWay too many managers and executives, not nearly enough of the people who do the actual work. If given the chance, some people will stab you in the back to benefit their own advancement.

    Advice to Senior ManagementCompensation on the order of 75% to 80% of a fair market rate does not constitute a "competitive" wage. Spend the money to hire and retain more people.

    Consistent steady place to work if you are looking for stability

    Engineer (Current Employee)
    Carson, CA

    ProsThey have a lot of work, with very consistent and steady employment. The benefits are overall very good. Pay is probably slightly below average, but it seems that they are waking up to the fact that if you want good people you do have to pay them competitively. There are lots of old timers which is good in that you can learn from them.

    ConsThere are a lot of hot heads in management. There is not a lot of communication from management to the troops. It feels very old fashioned, as there is not a lot of useful up to date modern technolgy at use.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey need much better communication, and need to create more good will among the employees.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
