    I worked at Magellan Aerospace full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Work life balance was good. Benefits were above average, especially health care and dental programs. Very clean work environment, especially for a manufacturing facility

    Cons

    High turn over, especially in the quality and manufacturing engineering department. Certain managers we difficult to get along with. Also did not help having the customer on-site over seeing every decision

    Advice to Management

    Be more proactive to retain employees. Seems like management expected to lose employees on a regular basis. Try to diversify customer base as well.

    I have been working at Magellan Aerospace full-time

    Pros

    Convenient location and thats All

    Cons

    Salary low, training is they tell you what to do and make you sign a paper. Poof your trained. Meetings everyday but nothing changes. Jobs arent even finished and planning is doing the paperwork as if job was finished. Way to many reworks because every job is rushed just to make the daily numbers

    I worked at Magellan Aerospace full-time

    Pros

    Great Benefit package, Good People for most part. Fenced in parking.

    Cons

    More salaried employee than hourly employee in a manufacturing field. Union flexes their muscle excessively at any new employee. hourly also does not trust new salaried employees and less so for female engineers. High turn over rate for engineer creates chaos for continuity of improvements and high loss of traceability in actions performed for programs, high turn over also diminishes customer's relationship. The city in which the plant is located also has higher than normal crime rate.

    Advice to Management

    Need less salaried employees and give engineers more responsibilities, 7-8 ME for ~15 active project seems excessive, half of which are low quantity demands.

    Pros

    Work life balance is pretty good.

    Cons

    Management here doesn't focus on utilizing employees for their strengths. You'll see engineers driving fork trucks, schedulers moving around parts, experienced CMM inspectors doing visual checks. This is not a way to retain good employees.

    The administrative tasks are too cumbersome. Engineers here are doing clerical work 80% of the time.

    There is way too much finger pointing. When problems arise, managers more focused on blaming people in other departments for causing the problems than actually fixing them.

    Management plays favorites and if you're not in their special people list you'll be disrespected regardless of your performance.

    Advice to Management

    Get better technology to make the clerical work less time consuming.

    Pay more attention to whether you're putting people on tasks that they're way over-qualified for. Also give more thought to employees' career development if you want to keep good people.

    Treat people with respect.

    Pros

    Decent Pay. Always something to do. Never a boring day at Magellan. Some of the people are great good hearted people.

    Cons

    A lot of negativity. Looks like the facilities are old and breaking down. Management there is at an old style of working things. The environment and work culture there is that of a pirate's ship.

    Advice to Management

    Management seems to care more about themselves than the employees. Management doesn't keep their word. They say something and you never know if it'll really go down.

    Pros

    great place to work, pay is fair and the environment is busy but great people with lots of information to pass on to new employees.

    Cons

    Pass on more information from upper management on the future of the business and the aerospace business. benefits are good but can always be improved.

    Advice to Management

    put more attention to youth and training to the young people this can be improved and will help the company in the long term. many people are close to retirement.
