    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.

    management both upper and floor are only out for themselves. no room for advancement unless you are a part of the "good ol' boys" club.

    Pros

    Flexible work environment with telecommuting possible. Solid acquisition approach based on revenues to the bottom line.

    Cons

    Use employees as widgets. If your projects complete and there is a downturn you may get layed off. Overuse titles as many get Director titles which mean really nothing. It just makes the employee sound more important to customers. Play lots of politics at the upper levels.

    Advice to Management

    Stop playing politics and let managers grow the company.

    I worked at Triumph Group (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Triumph Group in Shelbyville had a good atmosphere of communication between the engineers and the operators on the production floor. This was a great way to work together with the operators to improve processes.

    Cons

    The variety of work was very limited so it was very easy to get into a routine that could drag after a short time.

    Advice to Management

    Improve communication and work with sister facility in Pennsylvania to increase variety of work and speed up processes and changes to processes.
