    I have been working at VACCO full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    4 day workweek. A lot of great passionate hardworking people who can make you feel like part of a family. Exposure to a wide array of product platforms (Space, Navy, Aircraft, Commercial).

    Cons

    Many old ways of doing business. There is too much talk of fixing problems and not enough doing. Unfortunately, there are a lot of roadblocks to making changes that will help the company be more successful. Too many good employees end up trying, get frustrated and eventually leave the company.

    Advice to Management

    Please learn to "manage" the discord at the executive level as it is hurting the company. Leadership stems from the top and impacts everyone. Obtaining a good resource planning system that accounts for capacity, has data integrity and ties together the finances and functions of the organization would improve business processes tremendously...and move away from all of the personal spreadsheets.

Uneven distribution of work. Some people working long hours and handling many responsibilities while others barely put in their time and are standing around and socializing when they do. Lots of favoritism. Many of the problem managers are...
