    Pros

    Nice people to work with. close to retirement

    Management does have a clue what it take for hourly to do their jobs. They come with some of the dumbest ideas, that take more time then what it took before.

    Advice to Management

    Corporate should take a look at the management at Frederick and make a change.

    I have been working at Triumph Group full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Yakima is a great location to live.

    Cons

    Since Triumph Group purchased our small company in 2015, they have eliminated five weeks of paid leave (personal business and sick leave) and reduced matching 401K. Also, in the switch to Triumph they have moved 6 of our senior engineers with 15 to 30 years of experience to a lower experience band equivalent to an engineer with 6 years or less experience. Obvously, even if one receives a good performance review they don't qualify for a merit increase because "your current compensation is above the retention level you have assigned to". The local engineers have been requesting that TGI upper management address this issue for two+ years. Their response: we're working on it.

    Advice to Management

    Please fix your experience band systems. This has the appearance that Triumph purposely changed the bands of senior level engineers to save money when they aquired our company. This is not a good way treat your experienced employees.

    Please review what impact you have had on employee morale when you eliminated 5 weeks of personal paid leave. This is not motivating your good people.

    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

    Not including upper management 99% the floor supervisors and employees are friendly and easy to work with. Health benefits are above average.

    Cons

    Upper management is uncaring and has no concern for the people that get their product out the door. When they try to fix what is broken they start at the bottom rather than starting at the top. Most of the people I work with are exhausted from the hours, unkempt promises and lack of encouragement.

    Advice to Management

    You have some great people working for you that have much knowledge and skill. They strive to put out quality parts but feel pressured to just get it done without regard to quality. Get off you salary and appreciate those of us who care.

    Pros

    Benefits are O.K. Plenty of overtime to make up for poor hourly wage.

    Cons

    Pay is extremely low for skilled labor positions. Management team consists of unqualified bullies. Human resources is blind to all of it.

    Advice to Management

    Get current. Make hires based on qualifications, not who they know or are related to.

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

    Pros

    yearly raise, benefits (not great but its better than not having any), some what laid back atmosphere, its a job

    Cons

    poor communication, local HR is a joke, company profits are seriously declining, care more about charts and numbers than actual work produced, poor work ethic is rewarded with a yearly raise, improvement initiatives seem to be geared only toward production operations and not support personell

    Advice to Management

    take a tour around the facility every once and a while, we all understand that management has more on their shoulders than we could probably imagine but when you give the perception to the employees that actually touch the parts and make the product that you are on a level that does not need to understand the day to day feelings in order to grow the bottom line, there's a problem. Gemba anyone?

    Pros

    The people are very friendly and helpful out on the shop floor. Very willing to answer questions. Clean work areas.

    Cons

    No clear direction from upper management. Serious lack of interpersonal skills. Culture is one of ambiguity.

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN to your employees when they come to you with concerns. All "perceptions" are not necessarily factual. Take time out to get to know your people.

    Pros

    The insurance benifits and 401k match. The pay and how often you get a raise. You don't start off well though

    Cons

    Union. Good workers get treated badly while the slackers get away with anything. Weather its a bad part to time in parts

    Advice to Management

    Treat all employees fairly across the board. I saw alot of good tech leave because of what was noted in the cons section
