Disapproves of CEO

Pros

The professional office personnel are easy to work with and the building is clean. The cafeteria was nice until they decided to shut it down to sqeeze a few more pennies out of the panel shop business.

Cons

The current mangement at Benshaw division of CW Flow Control is obsessed with playing Big-Brother to everybody even the senior professionals (micro-managing on steroids). This division has been shrinking ever since CW bought Benshaw back in 2007 through lay offs and shuttering doors on a few satellite offices. Creativity has slowed to a stand still in the current environment they foster.

Advice to Management

You need to to hire/find some leaders who understand the industry and don't have their number one concern being to just squeeze as many pennies as you can out of a panel shop while sacrificing employee moral and a conducive environment for creativity.

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

    Pros

    I met some great people there and learned not to believe everything I was promised.

    Cons

    Management will act like your friend and use you as the fall guy if the project fails. In over 3 years of working 50 hr weeks and seeing people leave with a day notice I should have known it wouldn't change. The turnover was the highest I've seen. Management would lie to your face and pit workers against each other.

    Advice to Management

    Treat employees with respect and be truthful. You'll be surprised at the increased productivity.
