Growing business with many growing pains
Manufacturing Engineer (Current Employee), Fort Worth, TXNovember 11, 2014
Pros: great team/co-worker camaraderie
Cons: compensation, late reviews, very little positive reinforcement
Progress is being made but the amount of voluntary departures speaks volumes for the state of things right now. Lack of appreciation (fair compensation), inadequate management support and unrealistic expectations top the list for why the culture is so fragile.

Great place to work. Good pay.
Senior Engineering Technician (Former Employee), Irvine, CAOctober 29, 2014
Pros: good pay, cafeteria, nice management
Cons: strict on attendance, limited computer access, it controls everything a little bit too tight, parking can be a problem
Great company to work for but they are very strict on attendance. They have a nice cafeteria and often have special events with free food and games. The company in Irvine has about 1200 employees. They tend not to hire directly and go through temps services. Low employee turn around rate.

Different experience
Plane Assembler (Former Employee), Dublin, GASeptember 2, 2014
It was something that I have never done before, but picked up the skills a short while after starting the position. A typical work day consist of loading and unloading the oven, lock wiring units, bonding units with adhesives and sometimes doing dielectric with a trainer. Co-workers were different than most of the jobs I have worked with. The hardest part about the job was when I first started and learning to lock wire, which I accomplished by watching videos on you tube. The most enjoyable part of the job is learning something new.

Contract Employee
Electronic Technician, FAA Work station (Former Employee), Hauppauge, NYApril 29, 2014
Pros: pleasant work atmosphere
Cons: limited full time work avaliable
Fellow associates were pleasant. Company culture is difficult to address due to the the fact that I was hired as a contract employee, therefore not "privy" to company packages.

Large Corporation with Bureaucracy Feel
Administrator (Former Employee), Irvine, CAApril 19, 2014
Pros: interesting work, solid workplace benefits, and no crazy behavior by workers or bosses' is tolerated.
Cons: inflexible as to work from home or varied work hours, lower pay than other such companies, and very hard to advance quickly.
If you like working at a large corporation that's bottom line is always how does this affect the stock price, then you would enjoy working here. It is a mostly male dominated industry with very few women in managerial or director roles. People toil away for over 20 years to make manager. If you are young and quick, you can advance to these roles in half the time. The compensation is on the low side of average. There are full benefits and various work-place programs. Overtime is often not expected and most people that work at this company are clock punchers. Some of the leaders are willing to teach you and mentor you and do value you. Unfortunately, a lot of others are just waiting around for their pension to kick-in and have no interest in advancing the company or bringing it into the 21st century.

Hard working environment as well as easy going. Fun, yet professionalism still maintained.
Assembler (Former Employee), Irvine, CAFebruary 7, 2014
Pros: lunches, days off, incredible coworkers
Cons: managment
Typical day at work would be clock in check and see what work order needed to be done. Clock in on the job, clean and create workspace. Team leaders was very patient and understanding as well as made sure that their workers were comfortable in the work environment. Coworkers were friendly and helpful as well help provide new knowledge as to how a certain component works. Hardest part of the job is dealing with people who might want to hold you back despite what you try to do to excel and the most enjoyable is working with coworkers who help make the workspace a positive environment and knowing that you are part of a team being able to accomplish tasks that most people can't.

Good pay but long hours
Co-op Industrial Engineer/Technician (Former Employee), Irvine, CASeptember 25, 2013
Pros: compensation
Cons: hours
As in most aerospace companies, projects can fall behind very easily which tends to pile up work. It is more common to work a 10 hour day than an 8 hour day. Claims to embrace Lean concepts but there is tremendous room for improvement.
