    I worked at Astronics full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great leading edge technology in avionics communications. Interesting work.

    Cons

    High turnover rate of managers/supervisors. Lacking feedback, workplace observations, understanding of work process, interest, or support.

    Advice to Management

    Do not jump to conclusions without personally observing work being performed.
    Talk to the person before, during, and after a task. Allow them to speak and treat them as you would like to be treated. Put away the cell phone and pay attention.

    Very supportive environment when you have suggestions or questions about how or why something is done.

    I worked at Astronics full-time

    Every other Friday off

    There is a lot of separation and treatment between the office staff and the worker's in assembly. Points are issued for numerous reasons, bells for breaks, very old school manufacturing atmosphere.
