Professional environment and fast growing company.
Travel Accounting Clerk II (Former Employee), Poway, CAFebruary 6, 2014
Pros: pension, bonuses, healthcare, 9/80 work schedule
Cons: office layout, short breaks
Overall, it was a good place to work. The work was constant and at times challenging, which was a plus for me. I learned a lot about government rules and regulation and working with accounting software systems. The company offered excellent benefits to its employees and the management took the time to listen to the people in their respective departments – more... for improvement and positive change. The team I worked for was great. We were a cohesive unit and met deadlines together as well as independently. The hardest part of the job was staying interested in my work. The work did keep me busy, but it I could have used more of a challenge. It became monotonous at times. The most enjoyable part of the job was getting to work with the team. We were close with each other inside and outside of work and could trust each other to get the job done and back each other up. – less

Manufacturing Engineer IV (Former Employee), Poway, CaliforniaAugust 27, 2013
Pros: interesting work
Cons: management gets in the way of their own directions making progress difficult.
Interesting work although very unorganized company. Management cant see the forest through the trees, very dysfunctional. If you hire in, move around within departments every few years is your best bet. Do not work in manufacturing/Production.

Great Job Security with Great People
Expediter II Product Control (Current Employee), Palmdale, CAJuly 10, 2013
Pros: there is a gym on site and a cafe, also the company offers tuition reimbursement
Cons: the commute is long and the hours are long.
A typical work day includes production and maintenance of aircraft for customers. While in production it is necessary for me to create work orders for MRP and discrepant parts. Coordinate with section supervisors on scheduling the shipment and delivery of priority items to expedite the production process. There is plenty of tracking, locating, cycle – more... counting, and other transaction documenting using Oracle, and JD software as well as other company based computer programs. My coworkers are all very smart, outgoing individuals that make working here a prize. The hardest part of the job is that there is so much to it, it takes time to call yourself the best at every aspect however that is also the most enjoyable part. Everyday is a challenge that I get to use my problem solving skills to navigate to solutions that fit the customers needs as well as my coworkers. I enjoy learning and this is a great opportunity for that. – less

Hard to move up in the company. They don't really promote forward thinkers. If they didn't think of it, it isn't a good idea.
