    I have been working at Triumph Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Christmas party. People not in management are nice. Salary is good don't ever expect to go beyond what your initial starting pay is ever.

    Cons

    No communication to the employees. Management will not communicate to you anything about the company or about your performance even if you ask. With respect to your performance, they will just take action with Human Resources Forget talking to the employee.
    Management doesn't communicate and will do anything up to lie to get ahead. They care more about what they look like and how they are going to perform than anything else.
    No on the job training and don't ask or you will be taken as you can't do your job and either no raise or let go.
    If you ask a question regarding ethics and safety be prepared to be walked out the next week.
    HR is not your friend.
    HR does not even know common practices to run a company.
    I have seen them hire and fire quicker than a blink of an eye as knee jerk reactions for reasons that are terrible. Lawsuits are inevitable.
    Question the ethics of the people who work here. Do not act like they have consciences and everyone is out for themselves.
    You'll be asked to agree and even sign paperwork and if you don't even read it or have an issue be prepared to walk the unemployment line.
    Management is all new hires under the age of 30 because all the experience people were smart and left or were terminated for at will ridiculous reasons that are laughable.
    Management makes decisions to quickly without thinking of the consequences and quickly hide is something goes sour.
    You do not have a voice and you never get a second chance. If you make a mistake you'll live with it for the rest of your career or they are very quick to let you go
    Do not work here if you ever plan to take a long vacation., have a child, get sick, or have a family member get sick, if you tend to make mistakes on documents or send an email that they don't like or do not have the right answer.
    This company is known for setting people up for failure and Do not try to help you they just want you out.

    Advice to Management

    Treat others how you want to be treated. Stop thinking about yourself and think about others and how your actions impact their careers in their lives. Don't make decision so quickly without thinking of the consequences down the road. I understand that everyone makes mistakes and humans are infallible and one mistake should not mean you are forever a little performer I walked out the door

    HR- get up to speed on the department of labor laws. Immediately obtain ethics training.

    I have been working at Triumph Group full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, good pay .

    Cons

    Triumph is undoubtedly the worst managed company on the planet ! Every incident or problem requires a knee jerk reaction. Painting every response with a broad brush. Then the given solution to every problem is so absurd that it's laughable . They're losing all their experienced employees to Lockheed in droves out of their stupidity. I hope Locheed completely fleeces Triump out of all their experienced employees. It will serve them right given how they treat their employees. It's definitely a day of reckoning for such a fine company as Triumph. No advancement opportunities, lots of take a ways, DO NOT WORK FOR THIS COMPANY, YOU'LL BE SORRY YOU DID !

    Advice to Management

    Learn to care about your employees, promote from with in, provide your employees with programs that help them grow with in the company. Use common sense when an incident occurs and don't knee jerk when coming up with solutions to elevate the chances of it reoccurring . Quit fear managing your employees both hourly and salary. You've heard you can catch more flies with honey than vinegar, well you sure have been putting on the vinigar because everyones starting to jump ship, unless Triumph is so drunk on its own arrogance and wealth that it can't see that it's sinking.

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

    Pros

    None, absolutely nothing. Stay away. Do not go to this company run run run run run run run far far away

    Cons

    Bullied by management that could not do your job, mandatory overtime with no recognition of hard work, constantly trying to move work to China, Stuart Florida and Mexico. Vought aircraft was once a great place, truimph swooped in and destroyed it. They mistreat the employees, no perks, no lunches, no benefits. The managers will put you on mandatory overtime then they will spend the weekend at home with theirs. They keep employees in the dark, no hope.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees, you have trained them then bullied them out the door to Lockheed. Where they will be appreciated.

    Poor management. Greedy, so greedy they moved work to Mexico to make corporate more money with no regards to current employees.

    Advice to Management

    Treat empliyees more like humans than like robots.

    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

    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.
