Pros

Salary structure is very competitive. You can make things happen despite red tape.

Cons

Big company with big company politics and approval processes.

Advice to Management

Provide goals and allow the many competent people to do their job. There are multiple levels of approval each justifying their existence thereby setting up redundant and less specific contributions of management.

    Pros

    Very large aerospace company that is #3 in the business

    Good benefits

    Cons

    Many of the programs are being relocated to their TX, MS plants due to cost
    Reorganizations occur often
    Sometimes Reduction in Force (RIF) occurs covertly, where Section Managers are not notified, even when their section members are impacted
    Sometimes RIF counts are low to avoid having to abide by the WARN law in CA
    Some managers can "blackball" employees to force them to quit and still stay within legal bounds

    Advice to Management

    Be honest to your employees and to the company.
    Face the facts and act accordingly in a responsible manner.
