    I worked at Vought Aircraft full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    OK benefits, some 401k matching, lots of paid holidays off work.

    Cons

    Very little opportunity to make more money or advance and learn new things unless you're in the good ol boys club (hunt, fish, watch GA football)

    Advice to Management

    Do NOT post jobs when you already know who you want to have it and LIE to the ones who actually are worthy of the new position.

    Pros

    Ice cream every other Friday in the summer. Tying to make lame attempts but not holding people accountable and not looking at the organization's fat layered structure.

    Cons

    No engagement and no training. No accountability. Poor communication. Inefficient and structure is too fat with lazy people that are not held accountable.

    Advice to Management

    ACCOUNTABILITY. Look at the structure and cost

    I have been working at Vought Aircraft full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Even though I don't work at Bought,, I do work for a Triumph company, the work is great I like what I do making parts for Airplanes... work 's rewarding

    Cons

    Like I say I don't work for Vought, but seems Triumph management is the same all over, no people skills, little communication and not much accountability...

    Advice to Management

    Get some real management skills, people skills, quit treating employees like machines...

    Pros

    Good environment for on-the-job learning, professional, but not too much.
    Great pay increase scale and COLA raises.
    Good people, for the most part.

    Cons

    Day to day finger wagging about why we aren't making budget estimates.
    Overworked floor Supervisors.
    Mechanics are very mistrusting of upper management.
    Almost all the benefits packages for everyone under upper management are over priced and crappy.
    Management has been replaced more times then Katlin "Bruce" Jenner's body parts.

    Advice to Management

    If you don't preform miracles then find a cushy management job in a support group, like inspection or procurement.

    Pros

    Good pay and a good start in the aviation industry. The management seemed to be pretty laid back and a nice office space.

    Cons

    You are pretty much on your own . No training and no orientation, they pretty much expect to learn it on your own. Even some of the team heads don't know whats going on concerning the processes. Heard it used to be alot more organized before it got bought out.
