    I worked at Vector Aerospace full-time

    Pros

    The pay was good to start but raises are almost non existent. Three percent was the maximum and management would find any reason they could to reduce it to nothing. We were producing aircraft in record times and they still took away all our bonuses. Poor management from the Vice President has caused them to lose multiple contracts.

    Cons

    Management is uneducated and make fundamental errors in decision making.

    Advice to Management

    Go to school and learn how to be a manger, or at least get a life coach so you won't be as much of a jerk when dealing with other people. Learn how to value the opinions of others and stop trying to rule with an "iron fist".

    I worked at Vector Aerospace (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I made good money for the work I done. I had a very good work schedule and enjoyed working the hours and days that I was working. Benefits and insurance were very good.

    Cons

    Wasn't treated very disrespectful by supervisor. Was cussed at by fellow employees and it was always a hard work environment in the department I was employed in. Before when working in a different area I was treated much better. I sought another job mainly because of the way I was being treated.

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to treat employees so that they will feel appreciated and respected.
