    Pros

    Great opportunities to learn many different products and work with many different aerospace customers like Airbus, Lockheed Martin, and Boeing. Awesome individual contributors who are very knowledgeable - senior engineers, technicians, builders, test systems, etc. Lots of opportunity to switch areas within the facility. Very cool products! Low-level managers are really great for engineering teams and typically protect their team members well. Lots of complex and interesting problems to work on.

    Cons

    Management creates conflicting priorities and works at the wrong level in certain areas. Re-organizations are not thought through and can leave individuals isolated or overworked. The company does not do a great job supporting young engineers and do not train you in the basic ERP and MES systems we use everyday. Old run down equipment that keeps getting repaired rather than upgraded. Limited capital investment each year that is consumed by one area of the facility.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in training of engineers.
    Slow down organizational changes and reduce "read-across" opportunities that require massive overhauls processes in active production.
    Break down barriers for individual contributors; don't make our jobs more difficult.
