    Pros

    Using cutting edge technology to design avionics for retrofitting older aircraft. Every day brings new challenges. Get to learn and use different operating systems as well as design software at the silicon level. Are involved in all levels of hardware and software including design, architecture, debugging. Can be asked to help flight test systems or visit customer sites.

    Cons

    Schedules can be demanding. Long hours are often needed to finish projects. FAA documentation can be tedious.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate better with employees about the business and opportunities that the company is pursuing. Team building activities would be great as well, luncheons etc..

    I worked at Innovative Solutions & Support full-time

    Pros

    Great company where to learn avionics and new technology.

    Cons

    No cons, except a relocation plan should be implemented. And if it is, then it should be communicated to the new employee.

    Advice to Management

    I'm not sure who's posting negative reviews about the company lately, but it's not me and as far as I know i'm the only person who had resigned recently. It is a good company as far as what I perceived during my short time there.

    Pros

    The actual work if you are allowed to do it instead of dealing with inept leadership.
    Most of the workers (not all).

    Cons

    Where to start. Do NOT believe positive reviews. That is HR posting so they can attempt to hire.
    Extremely Hostile work environment.
    Upper management is totally inept.
    Totally unrealistic deadlines.
    To get promoted, one must screw up, blame a good worker, then fire that person.
    Upper management does not appreciate the effort of the workers.
    There are more VPs than there are workers.
    Look at the stock price, that will tell you about the upper management.
    Could go on and on...

    Advice to Management

    Advice to the board: CEO, President, and all VPs should be fired.

    Pros

    Friendly atmosphere. Very welcoming. On the production floor all the employees were very encouraging. proper training to support you in the transition into the company.

    Cons

    Company does not pay competitively for the amount of training you have or compared to aviation or repair outfits in the area.

    Advice to Management

    Separation between departments and the lack of communication among the departments is lacking. When an issue exists in production department the engineering team doesnt seem to take the problem seriously.
