    Pros

    Pay and benefits are ok

    Cons

    Communication and support from headquarters is lacking. Don't have good strategic planning. Always in fighting fires mode. No training for new hires which contributes to high turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Headquarters needs to be more supportive and communicate with other entities they own. Need to be more strict with their uncooperative OEM'so who don't want to play as a team. Hurts company image and productivity

    Pros

    great co workers and friends

    Cons

    high stress, very low pay, poor management, stand up meetings all day long make it impossible to get the real work done. KPI tracking and shortage report updating takes 50% of your day.

    I worked at Zodiac Aerospace (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Large global company. Some units offer decent benefits. Opportunity for travel and real world engineering that contributes to global aerospace industry

    Cons

    Leadership is lacking. It's clearly a French company and France rules the world. Management does not have autonomy and France has confidence in and rally's behind the inept American managed business units. It's all about EBITA, a numbers game. They thin out real talent, promote the inept through a wicked favoritism and nepotism culture as they rob Peter to pay Pierre. There is no transformation. The air ship sank long ago.

    Advice to Management

    Run to the hills
