    Pros

    Great co-workers, always doing something new each day.

    Company was bought by TransDigm and started down sizing and laying people off, me included!

    My supervisor was amazing and so was his supervisor. Its the President of the company who needs to be more open to employee and supervisor's needs.

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

    Pros

    Still a good company with great people.

    Cons

    Bought by Transdigm Corp. 3 years ago. Subsequently gone through 3 large layoffs in 3 years and some smaller layoffs. New management more concerned with $ than its people.

    Advice to Management

    Change for the sake of change is not always the best approach for new management. Realize that people are leaving because of poor morale. Don't fix what is not broken.

    I worked at Arkwin Industries full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Had met and bacame friends with many people in the company .and was able to rise to the level of being
    in charge of the calibration department.also their were many perks sutch as golf outings and cristmas partys and bonus checks fore making quotas.

    Cons

    the salery was notoriously less than other companys of equal sise.vacation time was very good depending on longivity.

    Advice to Management

    everything was acceptable under the original company but with the new managment the company has lost some of its old sense of comarodery and it is counter to the fealing of teamwork that was prevelent.

    Pros

    Arkwin is fair with employee vacation time, and management makes it a pleasant place to work for

    The employees are generally pleasant people, and there is a lot of loyalty to Arkwin

    Cons

    An aging workforce makes the company feel a bit antiquated

    For a very profitable company, employee compensation could be greater

    Advice to Management

    Hire more young people and replace aging workforce
    Increase compensation to entice better talent to come, and then stay
    Perhaps give more generous bonuses
