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.

Curtiss-Wright has been a great place to work. They have a good balance between the red-tape heavy defense industry and fast pace commercial industry. Great atmosphere with good people and a collaborative culture. Management communicated well, listens, and takes notice of a job well done. Employees are treated fairly and respectfully.

I have worked here for almost 10 yrs..... started as an intern. Pay and benefits are good. Regular raises and bonuses. Culture and management create comfortable work environment. This facility stays busy which helps the workday fly by. Employees are recognized for milestones. Hours are flexible. The Curtiss-Wright Fairborn, Ohio location is a GREAT place to work.
Flexible hrs, regular raises and bonuses, great benefits and culture.

Many of the IT employees are very helpful and team oriented. The infrastructure is chaotic considering there are multiple domains with different configurations. Far as advancement it is quite challenging speaking specifically when working in IT.

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.

Unless you are hired in as a manager or higher, there is absolutely nowhere for you to go but out the door - IF you want to advance your career. The company really lags behind in technology, lots of "manual work." Management level employees have been at the company a really long time, so there is a very "set in our ways" approach to things. There seems to be a lot of "red tape." However, it's a good place to learn, overall. Valuable experience to add to your resume.

Imagine telling people you work for the company that invented the airplane! To me, that felt great, but Curtiss-Wright needs to capitalize on that sense of heritage a bit more effectively. The good news is that this is a strong company, focused on acquisitions to promote the right kind of growth and vitality. Unfortunately, their succession plan does not apply to every role within the company.
Sound finanacial leadership and growth strategies
Doesn't foster employee engagment or communications strongly enough

Curtiss-Wright Nuclear management excells at playing pass the buck, with a complete lack of responsibility for poor choices. Any and all poor management desicions will inevitably become the problem of employees positioned below that manager.
If you work for this company, plan to experience an entire system of multilayered, middle management that are more then willing to pass the buck.
Project Managers fail to understand the basic concepts of project management or at the very least refuse to perform them.
Development Managers lack the comprehension of even the most rudimentary technological ideas.
Division Managers are obsessed with their bonus structure and moving up the corporate ladder, any and all be stepped on to get there.
