    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.

    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

    Pros

    I work for Triumph for 8 years, and only reason I am leaving is because we are being closed down at the Everett site. It was a great group of people, easy atmosphere, and important work.

    Cons

    The decision to close down the site I don't think was properly evaluated based off work, vs size. Management was all over the place. Communication was scarce, and not flowed down to the correct people.

    Advice to Management

    Remember your employees make you look good. Treat them right!
