    Pros

    Flexible hours, interesting work, decent pay

    Cons

    Supervisors completely ignorant of your job and theirs, many have a personality profile you need to fit, or you're branded "not a team player". Benefits costing more &getting less.

    Advice to Management

    All the lip service about ethical treatment of employees seems not to apply at the satellite locations- or is that on purpose?

    Pros

    Friendly, helpful employees that will show you everything you need to learn. Atmosphere is quiet and laid back. Salary is better than most and its a publicly traded company,so stock options are available as well as medical dental...etc

    Cons

    The software the company uses needs to be UPDATED.,little behind the times. Since the company was bought out it needs some uniformity within all offices and management needs to learn to speak with the employees...not just supervisors.

    Advice to Management

    YOU NEED MORE PEOPLE! START HIRING!!

    Pros

    Vacation, Friday's off, Christmas shutdown, you wear a lot of hats = you get a lot of experience in the different areas of product design.

    Cons

    There are a lot of random processes, unconnected software programs which we use. The way we release part numbers and get them certified to an industry standard is not always the best.

    Advice to Management

    The immediate management here is really great, they're open to new idea and they accept criticism. As for the CEO, keep pushing us into the 21st century and please do not stop making changes. All of the recent changes you have made to salary structure and promotions, have made a difference.

    Pros

    Amazing engineering infrastructure. Very high quality employees in general, in engineering. Very strong product portfolio - lots of work to do. Very interesting technologies to work with as well. All the best engineering tools are available.

    Cons

    Huge company. Definitely over-procedured. I've been here 5 years and I still don't have my arms around all the processes and procedures. Ambiguous chain of command. Lots of very young managers managing much older engineering population with mixed results. Support groups don't.

    Advice to Management

    Add a process (I know, another one) to vet management candidates and then train them adequately once they are promoted to the position. Eliminate Component Engineering and just let the engineers do the function. We do it now anyway, most of the time.

    Pros

    - well respected - good product portfolio

    Cons

    - terrible at acquiring small companies - VP/GM and Directors of Programs -- specifically in their Airborne Solutions portfolio -- are terrible leaders, can be very full of themselves, and perpetuate a good ole boy network and mentality (especially towards employees at remote sites). They don't take sage advice and they stand idly -- and in some cases actively -- by while programs hemorrhage money.

    Advice to Management

    Let go of your egos and get over your positions/rank in the company. Make the hard decisions to get programs on the right track. Hold the right people and functions accountable.

    Still need to work on career development.

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to career development.

    Pros

    Paid at 102% when compared to some one else with similar education and experience, up to 13% annual bonus based on companies performance.

    Cons

    Annual pay raise was a joke, but the annual bonus made up for it. Health care went from OK to bottom of the bucket. No longer active in the IC.
