    Pros

    Employee Engagement, company culture, senior leadership, benefits and compensation are very generous. The regional site leader; Scott Sanders is a true mentor and exemplifies the description of a professional manager with strong integrity.

    Cons

    The only con was the senior leader in Human Resources as well as the lack of a pulse that Palm Beach Gardens Corporate had on the divisions and the efforts it took to accomplish project management.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing as this was the best company I had the pleasure of working at.

    Pros

    Pay, this is truly a production shop ran with antiquated processes.

    Cons

    Managements belief that a company can be run off Metrics rather than an intimate knowledge of it's products and production processes is a fairytale destined for failure. There is too much dependence on senior hourly employees in making management decisions. Thus the company operates on tribal knowledge inevitably displacing technological advancement. Intimidated by the fear of losing senior employees. Therefore newly hired highly skilled labor is reduced to simply button pushers.

    Advice to Management

    Revamp management with experienced leader's that can in-act training, quality and scheduling processes. Get over the underlying racist stigma and promote employees based on performance and qualifications.

    I worked at Chromalloy Gas Turbine full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    There are some long term employees that are talented hard working people who make that place go. I enjoyed 12 of my 17 years I worked there.

    Cons

    If you like working for a thankless company that constantly dangles raises and bonuses like a carrot, yet never paying, this is the company for you. In 2011 Carlyle purchased Chromalloy and since that time stressful working conditions, feeble upper management, and high pressure tactics have been the modus aparandi. The division was the crown jewel of Chromalloy and is now practically surviving. One individual has been coveted by the inept leadership and left to run rampant over the hard working hourly workers time after time. That person has been reported to HR multiple times yet seems to be protected. Chromalloy may be correcting this situation but as long as the individual remains, I have no faith anything is actually changing.

    Advice to Management

    When you put people in place that believe the people are the problem, all you have is problems. Bring in someone who will earn the trust of the people and you will have the most dedicated talented workforce in Chromalloy. Since 2011 you have lost well over 50% of the long term employee's due to horrible management choices. You have to do better or close the division. The people who work there deserve better, much better.
