    Pros

    There aren't really a lot of pros.

    Cons

    If you aren't German, you will not go anywhere in the company. Sad to say, there is too much favoritism.

    Pros

    Tooling department is creative and hands-on. Internship program is great for fresh college graduates or seniors. If you can handle the fast paced working environment here, you can work anywhere. Awesome getting to work with many different departments.

    Cons

    Management cam throw problems iat engineers last minute. This leads to deadlines that can be unreasonable.

    Advice to Management

    Purchase decisions on software or hardware should involve the technicians or engineers beforehand. These "improvements" should be evaluated better. If it isn't broke, don't try to fix it. Learning new material or processes is a setback that needs to be considered.

    Pros

    If you have a German background or even know German language you will be part of the management team, otherwise you will be at the same level as you started regardless of your hard work, knowledge, education or skills.

    Cons

    An atmosphere of suspicion and fear of losing jobs is part of Hawker Pacific Aerospace employee’s lifestyles which makes the entire teams nervous and eventually stop trusting the company.

    There is little or no chance of progressing and succeeding into a higher paid position.

    Advice to Management

    HR staff and managements should avoid excessive monitoring of employees.

    Pros

    There are a lot of smart people here working Hawker Pacific Aerospace.

    Cons

    Although there are a lot of smart talented people currently working at Hawker Pacific Aerospace, their talents and smarts are not utilized well. There almost no motivation from senior management and HR. Most people wouldn't admit it but if they where being honest they would say they are not happy with their current situation here at Hawker. There is a lot of gripping, and complaining. Low job satisfaction drives down productivity, which leaves little to no room for improvement to become better has an organization. Overall its not an inspiring workplace.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more young, smart and talented individuals both on the shop and support positions.
