No opinion of CEO

Pros

good first job, good benefits, interesting projects, latitude to make proposals for new projects and follow own work if the project is funded, not overly taxing work,

Cons

not overly taxing work, poor feedback system from management (1x peryear), billable work meant that people work on a project but do not contribute much to the project's success, large desire for corporate growth by purchasing small to mid level companies, management plans timetables poorly and tends to micromanage as deadlines near

Advice to Management

I enjoyed working for this company but my goals and the companies began to separate. I would have liked more feedback on work performed and less micromanaging.

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

    Pros

    It's the oldest registered company in California.

    Cons

    It reads pretty, but they do not live it...values are non existent. It has become a soulless and non caring organization. They furlough salaried employees without pay to hit their numbers. So much for employee engagement. It's now disengagement.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate officers have lost touch with what matters to the workforce. They throw others under the bus.
