    Pros

    Decent Bonuses a few times a year. Good health insurance and 401K.

    Cons

    Growing pains with the company now being a large Defense contractor. Still a lot of small company policies and procedures that don't work any more that need to change (Expected, but still painful at times to employees).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It feels like the company is headed in the right direction, but can't lose focus on employee morale.

    Pros

    SNC has money so they will pay for anything to look good
    401K

    Cons

    Work Environment
    Arrogant, self-righteous, conservative, know nothing, wannabee nobility management.
    The difference between Google and SNC is Google wants change and "say it like it is" mentallity is meant, SNC "buys you". SNC (outside of Engineering) works you to the ground only to post-pone or never accomplishing their objectives. You really get the feeling of knowing how a hamster in a wheel feels.

    Pros

    The work culture at SNC is one of professionalism, rapid response, quality, and exceeding the customer’s expectations. There is terrific variety. I worked three different programs during my first year. While that presents challenges, it also provides great breadth of experience in a short time. The company provides great training and career development opportunities. This is the best I have ever been treated by top management.

    Cons

    The exponential growth of the company presents real challenges. If you want to work one program for the long term this probably isn’t the place for you. The communication between programs is problematic so there is a tendency to reinvent the wheel instead of using engineering that has already been done in another program. This is driven by the massive amount of work to be done and short suspenses.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No complaints. The single most important action by management at SNC is identifying those key individuals with the ability and expertise to communicate and lead within their groups and across programs. Exacerbated by exponential growth.

    Pros

    The people and the work is great here at SNC Centennial. This job encourages creativity and self motivation. I've been here for a only month and I've enjoyed every day so far. The company is growing quickly with people from all over the aircraft industry bringing a wide variety of experiences to the table. The office is biker friendly with lockerroom, showers, and bike racks inside.

    Cons

    Tight deadlines means some weekend work.

    Pros

    I work with a really great group of people who are all very dedicated to the task at hand and are also extremely realistic, fair, and caring. I've been here for one year and the training process has gone very smoothly. My supervisor has vocalized that he puts thought into my career path and future with the company. The pay is fair for my experience level and the benefits are extremely competitive. I feel appreciated by the owners and that my opinion matters at all levels. I hope to be here for quite some time.

    Cons

    Of course, I can only speak to my own personal experience. I can't really vouch for other departments/sites.

    Pros

    SNC has grown much in the 5 years that I have worked for them but still retains a committed atmosphere to family. It also has an upper management team committed to bringing quality into every endeavor. Creativity is encouraged at every level and we all work together to bring out our best performance. People here are self-motivators energetic and positive. I absolutely love my job and look forward to contributing to this company’s successes every day.

    Cons

    None that come to mind.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

Thank you for providing a living for my family and all of the things that you do for us that you do not have to, but do anyway. Your generosity, concern for our welfare and health is something that is rare today and sets our organization apart in my opinion.
