    I worked at Triumph Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good pay. Most people are good to work with. Great benefits and schedule. Very fast paced work environment. Never really a dull moment.

    Cons

    Very difficult to move up the ladder. Education and willingness to learn don't mean much to them. Many people get held back and are not allowed to advance. Senior leadership seem indifferent when it comes to personal growth if employees. You can predict with certainty who will get a position based on who applies. It would be nice if we knew who all was in the job pool so we wouldn't waste our time going through the process.

    Advice to Management

    Pay is good but you shouldn't dismiss so easily the people trying to grow and make a difference. If people aren't ready for something they need detail in what they're lacking not some empty reason. If you claim you are wanting to "see" something in them, get them around those things to help it develop but mostly be honest.

    I worked at Triumph Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Super flexible work hours, often working from home, great benefits, working for a global oriented company

    Cons

    very little or no room for growth, people hardly ever move up within a company and if they do it's usually based on who they know and not what they know or what skills they have, this results in a weak management, management doesn't communicate with lower level employees, company has no training programs, lack of integrity, very high employee turnover rate

    Advice to Management

    start investing in your employees, implement employee training and development programs (starting with your managers who often have no leadership skills or any interest in building strong relationships with their employees), show your employees that you value their efforts and commitment, stop favoritism and nepotism practices, you can not build a strong team if you continue promoting (or hiring) wrong people or rewarding brown-nosing instead of diligence and hard work, acknowledge and motivate your employees, create a professional work environment- the one that results in a workplace full of highly competent, respectful, and mature (!!!) employees.

    I worked at Triumph Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Employees that know their stuff and are willing to share their knowledge.

    A great place to start learn CNC machining.

    Cons

    The wages are low and getting lower as the company allows the better people to leave, (the guys replacing me were earning 65%..give or take...of what I was making. I left to make 32% more)

    management. management. management.

    They are too far away from the rest of the metro area.

    Failure to promote from within.

    The company refuses to get rid of dead weight.

    Worsening morale.

    When I left the company it was worth less than one third of what it was five years prior.

    No notice of mandatory overtime, ridiculous quotas

    Supposedly one building, one team but it's not. Departmental division is present. Not all departments are treated equally.

    Serious divisions and differences between office and floor personnel. Don't even try to enter the front door as floor personnel. You must enter through the servants entrance.

    etc. etc. etc.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to, respect, and pay your employees the national average wage for their skill set or higher in order to attract better employees.

    Pros

    Knowledgeable, Capable workforce collectively exposed to a wide variety of manufacturing / assembly processes. It is an impressive facility that is capable in all aspects of gear/ gearbox production with exception of casting capabilities which it outsources.

    Cons

    Advancement decisions are perfunctory, with most positions posted briefly once they know who they want to fill the position.
