      Pros

      Helpful and knowledgeable coworkers. Decent work atmosphere. Many sources of different departments to draw experience from to machine complex manufactured parts.

      Work, (employment) is based off large contracts, and layoffs can happen. Large company where communication of how the company is doing is lacking on the shop floor.

      Great product, backward management

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Fascinating product and technical challenges. 1st level mgmt does their best to make arcane corporate policies survivable. 9/80 schedule is great.

      Cons

      Tone deaf executives insist on canceling all WFH asap, yet have made zero improvements to critically short parking, meeting rooms and male bathrooms in main plant. No on-site daycare, gym, locker facilities at all. Many Execs stuck in past attitudes toward work/home balance, travel and flexibility. Very expensive cafeteria food.

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Great compensation Great benefits Lots of ways to connect with people Have a mentorship program called Boundless - immensely supportive Perks at Work discounts are extensive For the most part , if you don't fit their specific needs they'll move you into another team/role.

      Cons

      If you get a manager that doesn't like you, it will be hell The support from management isn't really there in those cases These managers are great at making you look like the problem Managers that don't like you, will have you removed from the company - rather then put your skills to work in another team.

      Islands of opportunity in a sea of bureaucracy and political correctness

      Feb 16, 2021 - Manager in Fort Worth, TX
      Recommend
      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      If you are the type that actually wants to get something done and work on interesting projects, you can easily surpass your competition. Just be careful not to do anything obvious to offend the bureaucracy or the social justice warriors in HR.

      Cons

      The bureaucracy makes it difficult to get anything useful done without having the informal alliances in place to defeat it. If you are technically competent and can get things done, others will seek you out as an ally.
