    There is an earnest desire to make this division of Zodiac a world-class competitor. Opportunities for improvement are sought for and pursued. With patience, persistence and creativity, one can have a sense of deep satisfaction career-wise.

    Keep it up. Don't give up. You are doing very well. Take pride in the achievements of the last year and have faith for the future.

    I have been working at Zodiac Aerospace full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good Benefits, Company shuts down with paid time off between Christmas & New Years.

    Cons

    There is no communication or follow through from upper and middle management while performance and customer approval continue to suffer. Work silos and finger pointing are major issues within this organization and there is a vast disconnect between Corporate in France and the US facilities that prevents adequate modernization and process improvement. Zodiac Seats refuses to invest in training, equipment, and infrastructure that would increase quality and on time delivery in order to bring them up to par with other organizations and customer expectations.

    Advice to Management

    You must spend money to make money; invest in your employees and in the company. Stop cutting corners and blaming others for the failures of the organization. Communicate with the work force and focus on doing things the right way the first time.
