    I worked at Curtiss-Wright full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits and vacation time. Great products! Clean plant and updated machinery. Manufacturing works extremely hard to insure products are shipped out on or before due date!

    Cons

    "On-call" requirement 24/7 every few weeks without compensation for travel or personal time spent in office. Late hours required. Employees are considered as numbers not as people. Offices were checked weekly to insure that no personal items were displayed. Colleagues do not interact, treat each other callously.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that your employees can make or break your company. Salaried employees should be compensated for staying late and coming into the office during off time.

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

    Pros

    The product going out the door needed to be of the highest quality since the pumps were going to be used on Navy subs, so the importance of quality was usually felt throughout the plant. Small facility. They were very flexible with my schedule and my needs. Very little overtime or extra hours required.

    Cons

    It was an older workforce and sometimes those individuals that were "retired in place" were allowed to get away with not doing their jobs. The benefits got more expensive every year. The I.T. Department was non-extent, so efforts made to make changes and improvements were for naught. Always consumed at the end of the month with what milestone dollars they could take. Perhaps some better planning throughout the entire month could have alleviated that rush.

    Advice to Management

    The hourly and entry level employees have no respect for management because they don't believe that management looks out for "the little guy." Take care of your people and stick up for them. And if someone is not pulling their own weight, then find someone who is even if you expose yourself.
