    Pros

    Good hard working people. Decent benefits. Stable and professional work environment

    Cons

    Too many engineers and project managers compared to designer who designed the product. You are nothing but a number. HR will lie to you. HR will not be on the Employees side. Employees have little sat in improving the business

    Listen to the Employees. Show more respect. Make timeliness realist

    I have been working at Curtiss-Wright Controls full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits, incentive bonus, good salary

    Cons

    Promotions are not based on merit, but who you are connected to. Operation slightly operated like a small franchise rather than a large company. Different business units have absolutely not insight of shared work. It's almost as if you are competing against your own company internally.

    Advice to Management

    Assure that upper level managers share the corporate interest not just the interest of one individual in a facility

    Management bonus driven at the detriment of employees. Won't give you a raised to save money so there bonus is good. Also won't buy parts ect to save money
