    I have been working at Sargent Controls & Aerospace full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The people here are great to work with. Always very helpful and friendly. The schedule is great, love the 1/2 day Fridays.

    Cons

    There are numerous hoops and red tape that you have to jump through to get anything approved. There is a serious lack of communication and cooperation among management, which makes everyone else's job more difficult as they are receiving conflicting information from multiple managers. The company lacks vision and any type of progression planning for employees.

    Advice to Management

    Meet regularly, with all parties that have a steak in the discussions and decisions that will affect them. The one off conversations to make important decisions are not working well for anyone involved in providing a deliverable.

    Pros

    The company is growing and has a great outlook based on the recent move from Dover to RBC. Our niche in the industry is solid and we are growing our business in our market segment.

    Cons

    A lot of long time employees do not understand the needs of the business and are resistant to the change needed to expand the business. This creates a distinct "us vs them" feel.

    Advice to Management

    Be more transparent about the actual state of the business. Post-sale nerves are high and many people do not know where they stand in the company. Being open and honest will go a long way. Don't wait until someone asks you, broadcast the message every chance you get!

    Advice to Management

    Keep you resume updated

    I worked at Sargent Controls & Aerospace full-time

    Pros

    Great atmosphere, great environment for personal growth and industry education. Was quickly promoted financially to match talents however I know this is not always the case.

    Cons

    Constant turnover on a lower and upper levels make the uncertainty of the future difficult. The recent buyout by a new parent company in 2015 makes this even more unclear however the aftermarket division will always thrive due to its stance in the market regardless of ownership
