    I have been working at TransDigm (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Good people and lower level management
    Newly renovated office space
    Generally, good work/life balance - management is understanding of family commitments and obligations
    Office staff have ability to work from home when needed

    Cons

    Senior management is only focused on satisfying corporates agenda
    Very focused on making the "number" - does not care what it takes to make it including letting people go
    People have grown accustomed to annual layoffs if sales are not met
    Poor company culture/values
    New President every year
    Lack of direction from Senior Management - company direction/policies change with every new President
    The only that is consistent is chaos

    Advice to Management

    Was great before we were acquired several years ago...the company is hemorrhaging good talent and senior management is so focused on making the annual sales target, that they simply do not care. It's not uncommon for people to either leave or be laid off and the job not be filled...in many cases, the work is shifted onto the remaining employees already trying to manage a difficult workload.

    Employees are not appreciated at all and it is obvious with the lay-offs which have come to be expected virtually every year since the acquisition. This is true for all companies acquired by Transdigm...every company experiences the same thing...mass layoffs at time of acquisition, no appreciation of employees and it just goes downhill from there.

    Opportunity for growth is minimal with little, if any, compensation and is only privy to the select few.

    Advice to people seeking work - good short term oppty to gain some experience but would not recommend a career here..

    Advice to management - appreciate your employee's, recognize that they are more than just a warm body and focus on what made the company great. Staying competitive and remaining relevant starts with investing in your employee's..
