    Long time employee

    Senior Manager (Current Employee)

    ProsThe ability to travel is the main factor I stay. The compensation is very low versus my peers in other industries. The advancement opportunities are available, but now you have to be willing to relocate to headquarters in Dallas. Senior Management is very engaged with the employees and there is an open door policy.

    ConsThe Company has always faltered in their leadership development. Someone gets promoted, but are not given the tools necessary for them to succeed.

    Advice to Senior ManagementProvide better training to low level management.

    Good company to work for

    Sales Manager (Former Employee)

    ProsThe benefits were very good including healthcare and flight benefits. The company offers a variety of insurance benefits and the cost was very reasonable. Flights are full but if you are flexible the flight benefits were nice. Co-workers help each other out when needed and work well together.

    ConsThe pay was lower than industry average. However, there was a company wide bonus based on several criteria.

    Advice to Senior ManagementI would say they should try to offer more competitive salaries or at least give bigger raises.

    ProsFantastic flight privileges. Great part time job. Not great to support a family.

    ConsPretty low paying. Must work nights weekends and holidays.

    Aerospace Engineering Intern Position Review

    Engineering (Former Employee) Phoenix, AZ

    ProsFlight benefits. Period. There was nothing else.
    If in the right department, you might meet some good natured people.

    ConsThis was the worst work experience I have ever had.
    1. Most of the 'engineers' there are A&P Mechanics who have worked there long enough to become 'engineers'. There is really not a whole lot of engineering going on. There is a lot more part tracking and just schedule management going on. However, during the internship interview, they did not mention that. When you hire THE BEST 'Aerospace Engineering Students' from some of the best engineering DESIGN schools, you need to be aware that they are much more qualified for the work that is being given to them.
    2. The supervisor and the engineers I worked with have the most difficult time writing cohesive sentences. Their grammar and their fluency in the language is definitely questionable. That being said, it would have been OK if their attitude was OK. My supervisor had the most hostile attitude. An example: During Good Friday, it was half day. He half-jokingly smiled at me and said interns don't get half day. I stayed 30 mins longer and then the lights in the office were being switched off and the whole office was deserted. If there was work to be done, I would have stayed. I had been there for almost two months, and all I was given is a 'Boeing 737 handbook' to read over. I got done with it the first week and didn't have any work to do for over a month! So, I left that day after 30 mins. During my final review, he stated that 'I did not listen to the supervisor'.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKnow your company. Your company does not require cream of the crop aerospace engineering students. An actual engineering job has to involve some hands-on work/design/innovation. All your work has already been documented in the plethora of ES/EA documents. Your engineering team is a joke. Please rename it or at least have the honesty to hire A&P students, and not shatter the hopes of an engineering student.
