Poor Leadership
Planner/Scheduler (Current Employee) –  Cheswick, PAOctober 16, 2018
This place is managed by bullies that like to over manage the details. No room for your suggestions it's their way or the highway. Very political environment and you need to be connected to the right people

This company is stuck in the 70s
Project Scheduler and Budget Analyst (Current Employee) –  Cheswick, PAOctober 15, 2018
If you want to work for a company that expects you to work hard without any perks, than this is the place for you. As a new hire, I do not have a warm and fuzzy feeling about this place. I feel like they don’t want you to be innovative even though that’s what they preach. The process are stuck in the most manual way possible. They are a holding company that doesn’t really want to re-invest with themselves.
Pros
No over time
Cons
No room to grow, no working from home, no gym/“fun” benefits. And the cost for current benefits just went up

Good mentors for internship
Software Engineer Intern (Former Employee) –  Cheswick, PAOctober 7, 2018
As an intern we did not get to interact with the broader Curtiss Wright teams. However, great mentorship from the business group but a lot was left to be desired.

No Career Advancement Opportunities and Clueless Management
Administrator (Former Employee) –  PAAugust 9, 2018
Exactly what the summary title says. Extreme emphasis on the clueless management. So worried about making words come out of their mouth that it doesn't matter that they have zero knowledge, but will actually change projects at the last second just because they feel like it. That's after whole teams have discussed and managed the projects. Of course then when it fails, they call you out in front of other departments and say that, "we need to do a better job." How about you stay in your office, shave your face with your prison BIC, give yourself a mani/pedi, shut your mouth, and just be happy that you somehow collect a paycheck that has way more in it than you deserve.

Great company, no issues
Employee (Former Employee) –  North CarolinaMay 31, 2018
I had a great experience during my time at CW. Like any other job it has its issues like a balance of growth that the younger generation is needing and wanting. The trainings could be better aligned for all job levels. Managers need more time to manage employees than be in meetings.
Pros
tuition reimbursement, shoe reimbursement
Cons
management

Large company comprised of many smaller ones
Senior Manager (Former Employee) –  CaliforniaMarch 28, 2018
While CW is a large company, their acquisition model for growth can often land you in a small company feel. This can be good and bad. It is good that you may have other opportunities for relocating, but the centralized management teams (remotely) often struggle to meet the needs of the many facilities spread out. They look after you if you have been there a long time, otherwise job security is questionable.
Pros
Competitive pay
Cons
Unreasonable expectations at times

I would not recommend this company. They do not treat the employees fairly. They come take over small companies and the employees get lost in the shuffle. No morals.
