    Pros

    Good and growing company. Competitive salary and reasonable benefits. Pretty flexible, team and employee accommodating atmosphere.

    Very limited and scarce PTO provided when a new hire.... 12 or less days per year for first 3 years.
    Limited upward or promotional opportunities if hired in as a senior.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Increase to new hire PTO allotment.

    Pros

    Mentoring was great. Great product and they do great in what they produce. Customers are mostly happy and PAC goes out of their way to keep them happy.

    Cons

    We brought on too many people faster than the business dictated and there was not enough work for the amount of people we had. Business model changed and we had issues with the amount of people that were working. Lay offs were beginning to happen. The long picture should have been studied as a business model before they brought in so many people. Growing one department twice the size in a year was not the smartest move at the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think I covered it above in the "cons" section.

    Amazing Work Environment

    I worked at Panasonic Avionics Corporation

    Pros

    Professional and everyone strives to help one another out in growing as an employee. Managers and supervisors try to teach their employees and push them to obtain skills to transfer throughout the company.

    Cons

    Lowering on overtime and hiring at the moment, downsizing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the people you hire or at least make use of them. You trained them for a while and it's a waste to let that investment go.

    Pros

    Great benefits, average salary and suitable vacation/sick/personal time off

    Cons

    Not much opportunity for upward mobility unless you're related to the right people or you pucker up...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management is unqualified & ill-equipped to handle their position. Establish a more thorough hiring process for QUALIFIED candidates.

    Pros

    clean,and simple. pay is decent. One of the easiest A&P jobs you can ever expect to have.

    Cons

    pay is decent, however don't expect to make much in raises... After two years only a 1.05$ raise...Mcdonalds gets a 3$ raise after two years...

    Laptops are fairly decent however one laptop must be shared by 3 employees making paper work a pain... not to mention the occasional laptop breakdown.

    Promotions are close to none. Favoritism is clearly evident however this maybe only a localized situation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Your supervisors aren't always right. Give credit where it is deserved.

    Pros

    Panasonic Avionics truly cares for their employees. Competitive wages, amazing benefits, and caring management are some of the trademarks of this company.

    Cons

    Panasonic Avionics is a fast paced environment. While there are many programs available and management tries to manage the work load stress can be an issue if not managed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the great work! Thank you for caring so much about your employees.

    Pros

    Company has (virtually) unlimited days of sick time. Time-off policies are geared towards supporting employee health and family. The company is stable given that it operates in a very niche market of In-Flight Entertainment. Personal growth is limited.

    Cons

    Bonus is a joke at this company. Most experienced people gets few thousand dollars compared to many other companies paying $20K to 35K bonus. 401K benefit is also poor. Maximum you get 4% employer match compared to other employers matching 8% to 12%. The upper management is almost born in this company so they don't have much real world of management experience. You are expected to work your head down and don't ask any questions to the manager. Personal growth is almost nil.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just look around the mgmt. style at other big companies. Telecommuting, Flexible work hours is the norm these days. PAC does not need to shy away from implementing it.
