    Pros

    It was my first job (hired on as an intern in college, started full time after graduation). A lot of people there were lifers and seemed to not mind the place. It was a pretty relaxed atmosphere.

    Cons

    I didn't learn much about engineering. Most of the focus was on lean manufacturing.

    Advice to Management

    If you're going to hire engineers, put them in engineering jobs.

    Pros

    I enjoyed working at Goodrich. Employees at Goodrich are passionate about their work. The location in the south metro is easily accessible.

    Cons

    Goodrich was acquired and merged with Hamilton Sundstrand to form UTC Aerospace Systems in 2012. This resulted in a much larger company.
