Positive Outlook

I have been working at Ducommun full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Overall a good environment with good people. The shop has good, though old equipment. Production runs smoothly most of the time. Company supplies all tools so the cost of employment is very small. Reasonably relaxed environment.

Cons

When they say "some overtime" they mean don't plan on ever having just 40 hrs (or really even 50)
Still working to implement Six Sigma and often seems like there is little interest in doing it correctly.

Advice to Management

Connect expectations with the metrics, don't just make pretty pictures and fancy speeches.
