    I worked at Curtiss-Wright Flow Control full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Initially I had a good supervisor who really looked out for the success of his employees. Everyone in the department really rolled their sleeves up and got work done during close cycles. Pay was decent. Benefits were really good, they had pension benefits, schedule was flexible. Not much traffic to get to the office, guess it depends where your coming from. Got along really well with my colleagues.

    Cons

    Location was a dump, no restaurants close by and all sorts of bad activities going on, drugs, hookers, etc. Started out well but then about a year into 10 months into it, corporate management came in and started making many changes without fully understanding the processes to begin with.

    Advice to Management

    Understand certain existing processes and practices before completely dismissing them.

    Pros

    Super friendly people. Genuine focus on customer satisfaction. Flexible work conditions. Impressive portfolio of large customers in nuclear power industry. Genuine culture of safety first and continuous improvement.

    Cons

    Large company, but organized as many small units that are not well integrated, highly silo'ed. Found it difficult to leverage enterprise-wide functions for a specific unit's product line. Limited (though improving) software product expertise.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in integrating best practices across silos throughout the whole enterprise. Open up career opportunities to move more easily across silos. Invest in software product expertise.

    Try to lead the industry, not just follow
