    Pros

    Allowed to be creative in job function

    Cons

    Don't seem to care if you are a long term employee. They care more about bottom dollar over years of experience

    Advice to Management

    Embrace years of good work history over saving money by hiring in at a lower salary

    Pros

    Very flexible on schedules, working from home, etc. There is some interesting work in hydraulic and electromechanical actuation, lots of hands on engineering work.

    Cons

    Pay is average, annual bonuses are sometimes good, sometimes barely noticeable and completely tied to the fiscal performance of the company, not based on performance.

    Most of the people were great to work with friendly and helpful. It was a fast pace and satisfying most of the time.

    The balance between work and home was ok but the management like to micro manage everything. Several of the managers were over bearing.

    Local Plants OK - Corporate NOT!

    I worked at Triumph Group full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The plant people were great and worked as a team to get through difficult issues. Local Management appreciated their employees with rewards and recognition.

    Cons

    Corporate office interference and downright lies! They put on a wage freeze due to "economy" when they were really setting aside those funds to assist with the buyout of another organization. In the meantime, Chairman of the Board, Richard Ill, still took his million dollar bonus on top of his $750,000 salary! They also jacked up employee medical insurance premiums by $3600 a year to anyone who did not sign up for the Wellness Program. Overtime expectations are ridiculous.

    Advice to Management

    Share the wealth ! Be open and honest in communications. Hire more people instead of working employees 10 hours a day, plus half day Saturdays almost every week.

    I have been working at Triumph Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Triumph was lucky to buy a company already staffed with knowledgeable, well trained, experienced, x military employees who had integrity and personal accountability. Mechanics "used" to take pride in a quality product. Wages "used" to be competitive, 401k was encouraged. Workforce "on the floor" is ready, willing and able.

    Cons

    Triumph management was quoted saying to supervisors, "get in their faces, yell at them, threaten them, whatever it takes". Layoffs are constant, backdoor deals and infighting with union, contractors rob the company and walk the door with tools, supply support companies hire untrained, unskilled workers for minimum wage and then they deliver inferior tools and parts. Overtime is mandatory one minute and taken away the next, they use it as needed to make delivery schedules with no real goal that makes sense. Inadequate, unsafe tools designed for 30 years ago. They refuse to spend money on TOOLS THAT ACTUALLY GET THE JOB DONE. Any customer of this this company should think twice. Staff, engineers and mechanics are quitting left and right....this company DOES NOT TREAT EMPLOYEES FAIRLY OR EQUITABLY. They have cultivated an environment of hate and discontent. Its a sad commentary on a once great American Workforce Family that is now complacent and detached.

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourself! Go to the think tank, brainstorm "WITH" your senior employees, don't be afraid to spend money on proved systems and safe tools. Rethink relationships with people on the floor. Cultivate a winning team through respect, pride in product, and real life compensation (not insulting pennies on the dollar that don't keep up with COL). Don't lie, harass or intimidate. Don't do analysis on floor people, DO OBSERVATIONS AND ANALYSIS on the directors and site presidents. Don't turn mgt and supers into hired thugs. At some point you have to realize there is a very important HUMANITY issue that needs addressing. If your people are proud of their workplace, they will give you 110%.Roll your sleeves up, get out on the floor and ask the people what they need to do the job. Most employees HATE the union, this isn't about union/non union...its about being the best American company we can be. Would you put YOUR family member on a Triumph built plane or helicopter? Ask the CEOs which airlines they fly on...Ask the CEOs why they rehire known failures as directors that feel zero skilled hamburger flippers can build the best product out there..really? Ask the CEOs how much they spend on their business suits...that would buy a few much needed tools. Ask the CEOs why they feel that their personal golden parachute is more important than THE MEN AND WOMEN they hire to shovel money into their personal pockets. Stop being greedy and act like a company that we can be proud to work for. America needs this more than you know or care about. Lastly, go back and reread W Edwards Demings work philosophy NOT Five Frogs on a Log. Wouldn't it be nice to pit in a hard days work and earn a fair income for a company that you can feel proud to take ownership in? Instead of hearing employees say: "I cant wait to get out of this place, they're killing me".
