Pros

* Opportunities to make things happen
* Talented workforce
* Big company that feels like a family operation
* Good benefits including tuiton reimbursement

Cons

It doesn’t take long to learn that this division has one goal and one goal only—meeting sales forecast. Chaos abounds with this singularly focused goal; scrap rates are high; on-time delivery suffers; and the end of the month is always a production marathon.

Advice to Management

Meeting sales forecast is of course important but to be first-class the company needs to truly adopt and adhere to a triple-bottom-line mission maximizing value for three distinct stakeholders—people (customers and employees), profit, and planet (environmental consciousness).

    I have been working at Barnes Aerospace full-time

    Pros

    Benefits are fantastic. HR does a good job taking care of the employees.
    Sites full of talent and resolve to succeed. Plenty of good people to work with.

    Cons

    Too much reliance on meetings for communication. Proximity to HQ.

    Advice to Management

    Senior management's plans and agendas change too frequently to maintain priorities or direction. Hone in on strategic plans and control those plans to allow teams to tactically execute.
