    I worked at Goodrich full-time

    Pros

    I can't think of any, except that the management was beginning to change for the better when I left.

    Cons

    Bait-and switch hiring tactics appeared to be common, and the company was more than willing to overload the employee with so much work that long hours were necessary to keep up. In addition, training was on a "sink or swim" basis, which set up employees for failure. Abusive co-workers were tolerated and were defended by H.R. and the management staff.

    Advice to Management

    Appropriately staff your business with employees who are properly trained and know what they're getting into, prior to making the job offfer to them.

    Pros

    Good benefits package and ability to move up.

    Cons

    Chaotic work environment requires patience and ability to be flexible. Can affect work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    Promote problem solvers who care about fixing real issues and not resume builders/empty suits. There are enough of those already.

    I worked at Goodrich full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    It was close to my house. So on commuting time it was excellent.

    Cons

    Did not receive any feedback from the supervisor. It was a temporary position. After working there for three months it would have been good to have received some feedback. It was only a three month assignment.

    Advice to Management

    Some feedback would have been nice. For temporary assignments, three months should be enough time to decide whether the candidate would be a good fit for the organization.

    Pros

    Engineering employees were very serious about following engineering processes. The employees had a professional attitude and mutual respect in the work place.

    Cons

    Goodrich Cargo Systems is located in Jamestown, ND. If you're used to a larger city it can seem a little secluded.
