I have been working at Aerotech full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Aerotech offers employee tuition reimbursement (100% for As, 75% for Bs, etc), profit sharing programs and employee stock ownership in addition to the standard health benefits. They've been in business for over 40 years and never had a layoff. They are growing quickly into the global market with subsidiaries and service people in several European and Asian markets; and they recently expanded the factory HQ in Pittsburgh.

Cons

The rapidly expanding company has suffered some growing pains. They seem to be focusing on change management to rethink the organizational structure in light of its growing reach.

Advice to Management

Address communication challenges (culture clash) between long-time employees (lifers) and young, new talent.

    I worked at Aerotech full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company is growing quickly by being the low-cost provider in a growing industry. The folks that do the software seem pretty bright.

    Cons

    There is a definite pay ceiling, and the best folks don't seem to stay long. Their apprenticeship system is isn't very good: the folks that have gone through it aren't very knowledgeable. Everyone seems to hate everyone else at all levels of the company, and there is a severe lack of managerial and technical skill in the machine shop. I ran away from this place.

    Advice to Management

    Unsustainable growth doesn't count as growth. Clean house and hire some professional management while you are still making money.

    I worked at Aerotech full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Allowed workers to expand horizons by taking on work outside the scope of their normal duties. It was most likely in an effort to save money, but it helped employees grow professionally.

    Cons

    Low pay and not much appreciation for the hard work of their employees. Family owned, allowing family members to step into top managament positions right out of school and with little experience.

    Advice to Management

    Cut back on nepotism and treat your employees with respect.
