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

Pros

Overtime, if you want it. (its not by day, but by going over a 40 hr week). Seems stable compared to most aircraft. Small business so it's easy to know everyone and get noticed if you work hard. Employee of the month encouragement (however, it's always someone that has been with the company for several years).

Cons

Not union. Lower pay and benefits then most aircraft. Most people have been there for a long time so it will take a while to move up (not much opportunity for advancement). Raises aren't very large, even with good reviews. Overtime isn't really negotiable except for emergencies so plan to work 10 to 12 hr shifts throughout the week and to work on the weekends as well (can be hard on family life)

    I worked at Triumph Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Actually a very honest and no nonsense management group. Hard work and dedication is recognized. Knowledgable engineering and manufacturing personnel with many years of experience, on average. Committed to customers and to their employees. A good combination all around.

    Cons

    The facility is old and a little outdated, although there are on-going efforts to improve. Tendency to push for monthly milestones rather than a metered long term approach. For anyone wishing to work at the North Wales Facility, the commute is awful. No good way to get into or out of that town.

    Advice to Management

    Keep listening to your engineering and manufacturing staff. They know you appreciate good advice and they are aware of the importance of remaining profitable and delivering high quality.

    Pros

    Work with (not for) good, caring people. Decent benefits (although they get a little worse every year)

    Cons

    Management looks at employees as inferiors. This is not only tolerated, but encouraged by senior management. Problems are not fixed, instead an employee is found to blame and then the issue is swept under the rug. Terrible planning by senior management leads to many situations where the business is severely understaffed for current levels of work. Management has the attitude of "if you don't like the conditions or hours, then good luck finding another job". Management is more worried about their own status symbols than they are about operating the business.

    Advice to Management

    Clean out all senior management at Triumph Interiors and save this business before it goes under based on poor planning. Treat employees as people, not dogs that can be replaced on a whim.
