    I have been working at Lycoming Engines full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Awesome work, hands on with experimental parts and engines, union benefits are generally awesome.

    Cons

    Management/Engineering disputes.
    Layoffs (though not usually affecting this department)
    Non-performance based pay increases.
    Union employees generally have no project input.

    Advice to Management

    manage conflicts with department interests and engineering interests. Better team cohesion. Better training (hands on with multiple projects and types), value opinions and input of union members.

    I worked at Lycoming Engines as an intern

    Pros

    Small company, very laid back. It was pretty easy on a day to day basis, no one was that angry if it took you an extra day for a deliverable.

    Cons

    Not that professional. Hard to get things done in a timely manner. Didn't really feel like a full time job because it was so laid back and a lot of people would leave for their next rotation.

    Advice to Management

    Definitely embrace the small close culture but work to add some more professionalism and set rules, expectations, and responsibilities into the workplace.

    I have been working at Lycoming Engines as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    One of my favorite things about working at Lycoming is the people you get to work with. Everyone is very approachable and knowledgeable. As an intern, I have learned a lot about my field in the short time I have been here, these experiences will definitely help me in my future career path.

    Cons

    The first week was quite a whirlwind. Between orientation sessions and on-the-job-training, you can easily feel overwhelmed. If you are not a quick learner, this transition may be difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to give responsibility to your interns. It makes

    I have been working at Lycoming Engines as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great company culture, very easy to become integrated and serve a meaningful role in the company. They also offer good pay, especially considering the cost of living in the area is fairly cheap. Knowing that you're working on actual aircraft engines is pretty exciting if you're into that sort of thing, and there is a great emphasis on safety and quality.

    Cons

    My job involved a lot of desk-work, so that became a bit tedious at times. The desktop OS's could use some upgrading as well.

    Advice to Management

    Make it more clear upon extending offers what exactly someone's job will entail

    Pros

    Decent pay for the work you do. Decent amount of overtime on a weekly basis which is voluntary so you work what you want.

    Cons

    communication could be better between supervisor and employees, some employees that have been around for a long time are getting lazy.

    Advice to Management

    Have actual meetings set up between supervisors for the off shifts and the employees so that all the info can be communicated between shifts on a daily basis.
