The Engineering manager will more than happy to take me under his wing and teach me things
Several of the Engineers and designers were more than happy to teach me and show me the things I needed to know
N/A it was a great job. When I graduated I was wishing I could have hired on full time
Challenging work, support of management, good travel benefits.
Understaffed in some areas. Geographically diverse environment.
I worked at American Pacific full-time (More than 8 years)
Pay for some positions is above average
Paid training in your line of work (usually but not always)
No upward mobility (except for the top 1% who keep promoting themselves)
No pay increases, unless you are among the very, very special few who get promoted
Toxic work environment
C-level management couldn't care less about the welfare of employees
Employees have no representation at the higher levels
In short: just stay away!!
I worked at American Pacific full-time (More than 5 years)
There USED TO be at least some regard and concern for employee morale and welfare (NOT anymore, though)
No career path or potential for upward mobility
Ambiguous policies and procedures and inconsistent application and enforcement of both
Lack of leadership, focus, and direction
Employees are deprived of fair and equitable treatment in work, bonuses, and recognition
Unable to attract, develop and retain talent
Advice to Management
Get focused and start communicating with the staff. In uncertain times, information and transparency to the employees is key. Instead, executive management remained hidden behind closed-door meetings; neglected to communicate to employees all of the changes being implemented throughout the organization.
Solid management and growth in the company.
Need to continually add support staff for growth
Advice to Management
keep up the good work
