    Pros

    Great place to work, great people and productive work force.

    Cons

    No longer interested in Aerospace and wish to pursue a career in property management.

    Advice to Management

    I am very coachable and possess a tremendous amount of leadership skills. Flipping real estate is a current hobby of mine and would like to make a career out of real estate and property management.

    Pros

    Relaxed work environment, interesting projects, great coworkers

    Cons

    Micromanagement, low pay with little chance of raises, corporate screws over the employee for the stockholder

    Advice to Management

    Happy employees produce quality work and higher profits. Stressed employees make mistakes and lose focus. Reducing quality of benefits and perks just to save a few dollars has a lot more long term negative consequences.

    Pros

    Pay is so so but should be better

    Cons

    Management too buddy, buddy with some workers, let them do what they want and seem to ride the employees not in the buddy, buddy system about everything. Communication is almost non existent are you're told about something days or weeks to late. Tools are old and what applies to one dosent apply to all when it comes to the rules.

    Advice to Management

    Leave your friendship with employees at the door, it's a business, run it as such and not as a sorority. Stop looking over employees that work hard and diligently just because they are not your buddies.

    Pros

    The General Manager knows everyone by name. He is that cool. There are great people working at this site.

    Cons

    Due to the location there are a lot of people who car pool and use the van pool. This limits people from staying late when needed. The impact of this that things take longer to get done.
    Currently the staffing is very lean.

    Pros

    Benefits and pay are good

    Cons

    The plant is poorly managed, managers have "pets" that leads to conniving and backstabbing, poor social work environment

    Advice to Management

    Use the "synergy" of being in the Triumph Group and get some outside opinions on management style, instead of management just listening to each other (and telling each other how awesome a management team you are).

    Pros

    Good health benefits. Flexible with work hours.

    Cons

    Triumph runs on the "good ole boy" system when it comes to advancement. If your not with the "in" crowd then your out. Poorly managed. The customers run the schedule causing chaos 24/7.

    Advice to Management

    Don't overlook talent because they aren't within your "circle". And stop letting the customer run your schedule. There are a lot of times when the customer is not always right in Aerospace.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good job
