    I worked at Curtiss-Wright Controls full-time (More than 10 years)

    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

    Advice to Management

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

    Pros

    The people are amazing to work with... Friendly and very easy going...

    Cons

    I got fired for the simple fact that a guy punched me in the face...

    Advice to Management

    Realize that Male's aren't supposed to hit females period....

    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

    I worked at Curtiss-Wright Controls (Less than a year)

    Pros

    People at the Kanata site are fantastic and hard working!

    Cons

    The American ownership is stifling and demotivating - only care about numbers, not people.

    Advice to Management

    Start treating the people in Kanata with care. They are and have been the main revenue engine for many years in that division. But like an engine, you need to maintain it not just run it hard without break.

    Good pay OT good benefits

    Cons

    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

    Advice to Management

    Management needs to work with employees not against and have them quit micro manage employees
