    I have been working at Goodrich full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Self employed, formerly Goodrich Aerospace "Tooling Design Engineer". My resume will describe my qualifications such as a "Tooling Design Engineer", "Tooling and Die Machinist", and "Foundry Owner".

    Cons

    I Would like to work with a company on a contract basis so I can devote my time to the production and processes that I have accomplished through my years.

    Advice to Management

    Being I am the management, I am always looking for more knowledge in the manufacturing field because that is what I really like doing.

    I worked at Goodrich full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Air conditioned, CNC machining is just cool, good experience. Some people are happy to work in a factory and just do the same thing day in and day out and know what to expect, that's a pro for this job if that's you.

    Cons

    As a machinist they just want you to know your machine and stay put for the most part. I did see some people move to office and engineering positions. I guess it's what you would expect from a factory, stay in your spot, make your parts, treat you like a little kid kind of environment.

    Advice to Management

    Wasting 5 days of continuous improvement to come up with the idea to position a desk 90 degrees to your machine so the machinist only has to do half turns, and putting on paper that it somehow save thousands a year is silly.

    Pros

    Great work schedule and easy work. Left because plant shut down. 30 percent discount on Michelin tires

    Cons

    Offer more advancement opportunities. Offer more training to employees. Allow employees to offer feedback to upper management.

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing what your doing. Fantastic job. If the plant was still open I would still be working there.

    Pros

    Goodrich truly values its people and treats every individual with mutual trust and respect. The Goodrich People Philosophy is taught AND practiced well.

    Cons

    Goodrich is a longstanding company with many (sometimes cumbersome) processes. They are continuously improving, albeit slowly. You must exhibit patience to experience change, as it takes a significant amount of time to implement anything new or different.
