    I have been working at Triumph Group

    Pros

    Great people, family oriented, and very easy to get along with co-workers and management. Feels like you are a part of the family on day one.

    Cons

    Very difficult to implement lasting change in any aspect of the operation. Hard on anyone who is highly motivated to perform and make a difference.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to establish a clear vision of where the company needs to go and remove all known obstacles.

    I have been working at Triumph Group full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Too many hours per work week.

    Cons

    Work/life balance. In the Aerospace industry, there are many highs, lows and global competition. It forces some business units to try to do too much with too little.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Leverage the corporation's position at the business unit level.

    I have been working at Triumph Group full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Decent benefits for this area and there is room for advancement for those eager to move up. Plenty of over time is available for those who seek it. Plus there are opportunities to move around within the company if your current position is no longer desirable to you, which for me was a huge plus.

    Cons

    The building are old and require updates.

    I worked at Triumph Group as an intern

    Pros

    The team at Triumph are all very intelligent and fun to work with. I really enjoyed my time there. Working around all the machines was exciting and made me excited to go to work everyday.

    Cons

    Sometimes it was hard to see the "Big Picture" of what was going on at the company. Knowing exactly what was going on on a large scale was a bit hazy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would hold more full-company meetings, so everyone has a clear picture of where the company is going.

    I worked at Triumph Group as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    Triumph is a forward looking company that really takes advice from all of its employees. They are constantly striving to improve, and they take suggestions readily from those interested. As just an Intern, I was allowed to provide input on several important projects, and really felt like I made an impact in the company.

    Cons

    Triumph is heavily unionized, which makes some changes harder to implement than others. Some of the technology they use is a bit dated, which can make some work more difficult than it should be.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have less union shops, they really hurt the profitability of your company.

    I worked at Triumph Group full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Actually a very honest and no nonsense management group. Hard work and dedication is recognized. Knowledgable engineering and manufacturing personnel with many years of experience, on average. Committed to customers and to their employees. A good combination all around.

    Cons

    The facility is old and a little outdated, although there are on-going efforts to improve. Tendency to push for monthly milestones rather than a metered long term approach. For anyone wishing to work at the North Wales Facility, the commute is awful. No good way to get into or out of that town.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening to your engineering and manufacturing staff. They know you appreciate good advice and they are aware of the importance of remaining profitable and delivering high quality.

    Pros

    Triumph Group has a wonderful health benefits program for employees inclusive of families. Time off is great with the industry average paid holidays and earned vacation time. You have great opportunities to grow your career here.

    Cons

    You must take advantage of the new online personal review system. Failure to do this can be career ending or at the least halting. Work life balance can be difficult at some business units if your position objectives are not clear.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stick with portfolio growth objectives, continue to invest into the personnel and facilities you already own.

    I have been working at Triumph Group full-time

    Pros

    great benefits and amenities; acceptable work life balance and good coworkers for the most part.

    Cons

    One of the least diverse places I have ever worked. The company is stuck in "we have always done it this way", which is fine in manufacturing 20 years ago. Now, employees have to be nimble and amenable to change. Not so much here.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Embrace diversity, nto only just finding people who look different, but those who act different as well. This will allow your conglomeration of companies to accept and weather change well.
