    I worked at Safran Engineering full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Can not think of any pros.

    Cons

    Majority of the office was hired from Mexico and paid less than the other American born employees

    Advice to Management

    Follow the law when hiring and choose local candidates first, then international. Even then, when hiring international employees, pay them at the same rate as the other employees.

    I have been working at Safran Engineering full-time

    Pros

    They prepare you to work somewhere else, giving you lots of workload, responsibilities and getting paid less than the average everywhere you look.

    Cons

    The rate per hour is not even close to the average in the industry.

    Advice to Management

    Too many managers.

    I worked at Safran Engineering full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Great place to work right out of college or early on in your career, especially if you want to work in the Aerospace Industry, a lot of opportunity to network with other, larger Aerospace companies. The company is small enough that you feel like you are part of a family, great co-workers. There are a lot of brilliant people that work there, from whom you can learn a lot and build your skills. Vacation time is... better than most local companies.

    Cons

    For non-technical positions, the salary is not competitive at all, they place all their value on technical skills (engineers) and do not value non-technical skills much (business positions such as finance, accounting, HR, project management, purchasing, etc. ). You will need to be comfortable with a lot of stress and high-pressure, will never be a 40-hour-a-week job, they will push you to your fullest potential... (which can be seen as a positive too). Because it is a small, local division, there is not much room for growth unless you don't mind moving out of state or overseas.

    Advice to Management

    Work on finding a way to show more appreciation and recognition to employees. Try to understand the value in non-engineering employees and make them feel just as important as the rest of the company.

    I have been working at Safran Engineering for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Young and small company that gives you the opportunity to learn and develop new skills and get involved in different activities.

    Cons

    Very difficult to get a promotion and/or find a significant increase in salary They used to recognize individual success in different ways but not anymore.

    Need to provide better and more competitive salaries in order to maintain a good amount of workforce with great experience.

    I worked at Safran Engineering full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Good place to start in aerospace, and they provided me opportunities to explore the areas that I was interested in.

    Cons

    Company seems to hire more employees from outside the country instead of local qualified candidates to save on money. Sometimes the convoluted 5S system got in the way of actually getting work done.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to team members when they communicate, and receive cross training in your team members areas to fully understand the situation.
