Tyee Aircraft Inc Reviews
Pros – This company has grown over 70% in the last two years since "Hundreds of years of experience" has been "pushed out". The company is making huge strides in the right direction despite "Management not knowing a thing about manufacturing".
Cons – The negative review was obviously left by a bitter former employee who had it easy for so long and now they have to deal with the real world. Get over yourself and do something about it.
Advice to Senior Management – Start a weekend shift to cut down on needed overtime.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Pros – Tyee used to be a great place to work. Above average pay compared to other similar shops. Great bonuses and really experienced managers/supervisors who knew the trade and were committed real continuous improvement... Not just make people work harder for less pay, but actual improvements in machines, tooling and better engineered quality products.
Cons – Now it's owned by Transdigm Inc. and has been merged with Avtech Corp to be Avtechtyee Aircraft Inc. They brought in Avtech's management team and pushed out the old team that made the company the success it was. There was a reason Transdigm paid 1.3 BILLION dollars for the group. Almost every person involved in Tyee's success, from managers to supervisors, engineers to inspectors... Have all left because the new management team is completely, to the last man, utterly incompetent when it comes to true aerospace manufacturing. Hundreds of years of experience has walked out the door in the last year and they don't really see it as a big deal.
Advice to Senior Management – Wise up. Listen to your people with experience. Ditch the weak links and the underperformers. You are now operating below industry standards on all levels. Your customers may not have noticed it yet but those days are almost at an end.
