    I worked at Triumph Group as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    The wonderful co-workers that you will meet

    Cons

    Project scope changes drastically by the day
    Poorly managed - managers and directors have been there forever and are bitter/angry
    Too many "leads" directing employees
    Require 5 UNPAID hours per week before getting paid OT (which is straight time) if you are a full time employee

    Advice to Management

    This is a new generation - let your employees work remotely on a regular basis. If employees can be called upon to work OT at home - they can do their job from home
    Reduce # of meetings you hold that are redundant

    I have been working at Triumph Group full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Hires new graduates almost exclusively, great way for inexperienced engineers to gain experience.

    Cons

    Corporate restructuring in the past year has taken a lot of control from the local factory making formerly simple business decisions painstakingly slow and disjointed. Lack of room for growth after 8 years, promotions and raises are almost impossible.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in your employees, empower them to make business decisions, trust them to manage their own workload.

    Pros

    Good health benefits. Friendly environment and very good people but not the best managers. I am looking for pros but there are not much.

    Cons

    Managers??? Are you kidding me?! There is just a band of friends and folks that support each other. Look at their stock price and you can see how its plunges to earth. With this buddy buddy relation, the company will go down soon.

    Pros

    Some of the most talented mechanics and builders of the Boeing 747 and 767 aircraft subassemblies in the world.

    Cons

    Some of the most unqualified, uncaring, egotistical, arrogant, narsasstic group of management under one roof.
    They keep all their employees of balance by lies and deceit in order to instill hope so the workforce will keep producing even though we know our jobs are going away.
    They will insult your intelligence by their psychological game playing. Theres absolutely no communication between management and the workforce. We all don't know what's going on as far as how long our jobs are going to last. that's the game they play, keep you in the dark st all times.
    They've created an environment of distrust, uncertainty, and chaos.
    Workforce is praying that smother company will buy this facility. Please!

    Advice to Management

    Wipe the slate clean and get rid of all the yes men and install people who have a clue about how to treat their employees and know something about the products were building. There's no leadership that any of your employees trust to lead them.

    I worked at Triumph Group full-time

    Pros

    There is no reason anyone would want to work for this company.

    Cons

    The statement from then CEO Richard Ill when he spoke to employees at Vought Aircraft after acquiring them said, "You people make too much money. We are going to change that." Quality and schedule is of no concern, and they do not care about employees.

    Advice to Management

    Think about this business as more than lining your pockets.
