    I worked at Zodiac Aerospace full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    None that I can think of honestly besides getting a check every 2 weeks

    Cons

    Too many to mention; The pettiness of fellow coworkers and other OEMs. All the OEM's want Zodiac Services to fail so they can "gain back their aftermarket business". Services has no contracts with OEM's so it's hard to hold them accountable for anything. There are no training programs... except for the newly developed CSR training which needs some work. The turnover rate here is so HIGH!!! They can not keep employees. Please do not waste your time. I'd let the Safran merger settle and then maybe see if it's worth it. Services is in fire fighting mode. Project plans change often and aren't always communicated to customers. Which in return creates severed customer relationships... not to mention all the quality issues with products. Not worth the hassle, find a better job!

    Advice to Management

    Hopefully with the Safran merger Zodiac will learn from them in regards to people development and manager support.

    I worked at Zodiac Aerospace full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Interesting set of projects and a good opportunity to learn high volume manufacturing and how it relates to various departments, looks great on a resume

    Cons

    only a handful of people were given promotions when i was there so i wish i would have done a better job of negotiating my salary up front, like with other companies, hiring managers from outside can lead to a lot of unnecessary changes and huge emphasis placed on lesser issues

    Advice to Management

    Standard stuff: provide employees a path for advancement should they be interested, many coworkers left for great jobs in other industries or for bigger companies

    They should leave and let real new managers take over
