    "Some Great People...Poor Culture"

    • Work/Life Balance
    • Career Opportunities
    • Comp & Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Warwick, RI
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Warwick, RI

    Pros

    Aersospace work is interesting in itself
    Some great people to work with and will help support professional development
    Some great acquisitions with legacy businesses and people that are great to work with

    Cons

    Poor Managment
    Too metric driven
    Touts "pay for performance" but does not deliver
    Demands performance excellence while only providing average pay/benefits
    Laying off too many people to sustain operations/R&D/competitive advantage
    Forces beauracratic process on aquisitions that are not structred to execute (too lean)
    Preaches work/life balance and many other great initiatives but every action made contradicts those commitments to these great initiatives

    Advice to Management

    One size (or process) does not fit all! Every business is different and must be managed differently, creating a new process or policy and closing your eyes will not fix the problems!

    "Why not the best..."

    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Pittsburgh, PA
    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee in Pittsburgh, PA
    Doesn't Recommend
    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Engineers rarely have to come with any new ideas. Management doesn't like wasting time on new designs. Just tweak what is already there--make it work.

    Cons

    Office politics on steroids. If you are not a professional, you really don't want to work for this company. Management has no respect for skilled trades. Not much more than a good old boys club. Female Engineers beware. You won't like your treatment here.

    Advice to Management

    Do you ever wonder why your management people are never your first choice? Why won't your best employees accept management positions?
