    Pros

    Spacious 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.

    Cons

    Low 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 Management

    The 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.


  6. Top-heavy, arrogant company

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Way 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 Management

    Compensation 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.

    Pros

    My 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.

    Cons

    The 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 Management

    Help the employees feel more appreciated and help them grow and learn and feel fulfilled.
