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


    Telephonics is a stable company. In fact, it is Long Island's largest aerospace and defense employer. The vast majority of the employees are a pleasure to work with - they are hardworking and sincere individuals. There are many healthy programs and a lot of interesting and challenging work opportunities. The benefits package is competitive. There are a variety of new technologies being developed and there are many new business pursuits that should keep the company growing in the coming years.


    Telephonics is a large company that struggles to retain its small business roots. We are like a family - and EVERY family has members that, to be charitable, are unique. Some management decisions and policy changes could have been better communicated and explained to the employees.

    Advice to Management

    These comments are not for "Management," but for those seeking some insight into Telephonics. I have read the comments offered over the past few months and I don't really believe they accurately describe the company. Yes, like any company, we have struggled with some issues in recent years. I believe however, that there is much good that has been, and is being, accomplished. Some of the comments have apparently been made without all of the facts. For example, yes, Telephonics has had to make difficult business decisions during the past three years. We have done so to remain competitive in a difficult industry. By doing so, we were able to weather the storm of a deep recession and the Government-imposed "Sequestration," and have now returned to a period of headcount expansion. Yes, the raises have been modest for the past couple of years, but Telephonics, unlike many companies in our industry, continued to give regular (annual) merit increases throughout this period while other companies suspended or delayed reviews. I'm not sure where the "cash flow" comments arose. Yes, there has been a concerted effort to collect delinquent receivables - including small invoices. This simply represents good business practices. Telephonics is a wholly owned subsidiary of Griffon Corporation, a publicly held company. As such, there are often rumors about Telephonics being sold - there have been for more than three decades. This is not unique to Telephonics, but is a fact of life for any publicly traded corporation. I would say, although I don't have specific data to back this up, that the majority of people here at Telephonics feel the same way about the company as I do. We're not perfect, but there are many positive aspects to working here. If that were not the case, there would not be so many employees who have been here for 10, 15, 20, or more years. So, if you would like to share in a team-oriented environment, work on challenging and interesting projects, receive a competitive wage and benefits package, then Telephonics is definitely the place for you.
