    Pros

    Very profitable company. Maybe more management oriented in the corporate office. Outlying offices need more oversite by upper management. Employees are not treated fairly.

    Cons

    Office outside of corporate have no HR to report issues. Mangement does whatever it wants. Does not develop people, and low balls people on salary.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your people, and get some HR in your offices. People need to know that they can talk to someone with out losing their job.

    Pros

    close to home. competitive pay and benefits. nice area in Annapolis

    Cons

    still largely run like a governement organization, slow to transition toward commerical business. Good old boy network in place. Incentives to take risks are poor. Purchase by Carlyle has not been a positive as they have not delivered on their promises. It was a lot of hype and many people did lose their jobs. The primary benefactors were were the CEO and the CFO. The employees were largely sold out.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees. Your business is all about people, without them you will not continue to grow.

    Pros

    It's in Annapolis, which is a nice place to live. The poeple are friendly for the most part.

    Cons

    Everyone who could get out was getting out, lots of people were being laid off. The pay was significantly less than I would have earned at most engineering firms. Working in the aviation industry was pretty cool.

    Advice to Management

    pay your interns a little more.

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

    Pros

    Salary and Benefits are good . No professional attire required so it is very relaxed atmosphere. Shift work is a must but overtime is paid in double time.. not time and a half. Union shop.

    Cons

    People there need to mind their own business. The most common thing among-st everyone is everyone else business. Keep to yourself and you will be fine.

    Advice to Management

    Advise if finally being heard by employees. Thank you for bringing the new Director to this place. It is a very welcome change.

    Pros

    Competitive salary, regular schedule, friendly coworkers

    Cons

    Once the company sold and was bought, the name stayed the same but the attitude of the company changed. Employee opinions were not valued and everything began to revolve around the bottom dollar.
    It's hard to do your job when corporate management expects state of the art results but won't buy or upgrade software that you need. Employee opinions are largely ignored if they aren't managers or buddies of managers. Although my coworkers were easy to get along with, there is a lot of cliques and divisions: corporate vs the smaller divisions, mechanics vs office staff, different office areas vs other office areas.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest and forthright with your employees. I realize that management is oftentimes aware of details that employees don't know but you hired us because we know what we are doing and it'd be great if you gave our input and opinion fair consideration. Treat employees with respect and not just like another corporate asset that will be bought and sold. We aren't stupid and are more aware of what is going on than management realizes.
