Pros: Expectations are reasonable and coworkers are friendly and easy to get a long with. Cons: Very low pay and almost no room for advancement. Will basically be doing the same low paying job for the entire time you’re there, whether thats a year, or 30 years.
Pros
Reasonable expectations from management, friendly coworkers
Cons
Very low pay

This place gets boring after a while. Management is pretty good depending on wether your on their good r bad side. Co worker gossip is definitely a negative but you have to remember, for some people this is all they have, and they want to make it a less mundane place to work for themselves. Their is definitely plenty of cool work but no matter what the job just do your best.
Pros
Awesome people to work with

Get your roles defined because managers let that roll with your experience. If you're an alpha male you'll do well here. Very little training but great if you self learn
Pros
Opportunity and self learning
Cons
Pay and overtime

In my ten years there. I really enjoy working there. I learn a lot there and especially I work for the best boss that a person could ask for! Wish I could see how the place is now?

Learned a lot about the company on my own but communication is terrible and there are always higher priorities so problems are only solved if there is a work around. The bigger people don't care about the little people and their little problems.
Pros
Flexible
Cons
Communication

The 4/10s were the main perk for working around appointments and family life events. They extinguished those in 2012. It was a huge adjustment and dissappointment. Big motivator for many to seek work elswhere. Women do not get well deserved pay increases or promotions compared to the male coworkers. Leaving the lesser paid to train the higher paid without a choice. If people can train someone for a job they should of had the opportunity to apply for it. Promoting from within is usually done without notice or regard for those it overlooks no equal opportunity. To many smart managers without business history knowledge reimplementing changes that were changed for good reason to begin with. They do not bother to ask or study up on how it once was and why it wasnt that way now. They just change it without revisiting it. Doesnt matter how negatively it impacts the business they still refuse to undo the change.. The changes often make it easier for one maybe 2 departments but awhole lot harder for others. (Making the change nonvalue added as a whole) Usually the lowest paid departments carry the change load of ease for the higher paid departments. The managers do not thoroghly investigate or walk thru the changes they make. The company has deteriorated rapidly as of 2018. New managers are not action oriented and only seek to self preserve fighting for their ego owned advancement.

Enjoyed working there when I did. The people were fantastic and I enjoyed my role. Unfortunately, sales declined over time, work went to other competitors and they laid people off. If they could be more competitive and gain work once again, then it would be a great place to work.
Pros
People
Cons
Not competitive

A few good people work there but most are not nice people. Managment terrible, don't know the job but still want more. They have big ideas but dont ask the people who actually do the job. HR is one of the worst I've ever experienced. Supposed to be neutral but right on the bosses side.
Pros
Working with plane wings
Cons
Managment, Hr, supervisors all curupt. Filthy place

Pay is excellent, the work can be overwhelming for some and underwhelming for others. The culture is a bit on the negative side with employees complaining too much about their work conditions (which are better than most places). If you’re a positive person who works hard and doesn’t let negativity bother you, you’ll thrive here.
Pros
Pay, flextime
Cons
Complaining culture

Cant' manage a global industry from the highness of an airplane. Go down to earth dear Corporate. Yours salaries are the results of all activities, not just some loved and preferential friends(managers).
Pros
Good package of benefits.
Cons
No place to grow for a future specialist or anyone with strong principles and hard worker.

The job is laid back if you want a job where the supervisor makes decisions based on the level of threat he feels from the employee. Employees take advantage and do things they know are normal manufacturing practices but if it was allowed for one employee others use that to their advantage and threatened the supervisor with reporting him to human resource. Therefore the employees run the department not the supervisor. I worked at the Prince George, va facility
