Machinist (Current Employee) –  Manchester, CTJuly 2, 2018

Lot of turn over,large revolving door
Manager (Former Employee) –  Manchester, CTMay 9, 2018
I am appalled by the lack of intelligence and lack of uneducated managers that are in this location. Workers in the company are gracious and hard-working. However, rumors about previous layoffs and poor recognition of good work are very prominent in this company. Thus, everyone is scared to speak their mind and announce any creative ideas for doing business. If some of the managers could be replaced the company would be a great place to work. Leaders that have brains have no backbones and those with no brains are the ones calling all the shots. Pay was subpar and raises only come once a year.
Pros
Nice people
Cons
Bad managers

Great place to make Money
(QET) Quality Engineer Technician (Former Employee) –  Stuart, FLMay 7, 2018
Paradigm was a great place to make money. they had three shifts and always offered OT. The hourly wage was High there, and there were even machine operators in what we called the 100,000.00 dollar club meaning that they made lots of OT.
i loved working there, had a great boss, and with so much work to do the days flew by.
Pros
great place to earn money.
Cons
they do mass lay offs

Pays well
OPS (Current Employee) –  Stuart, FLMarch 29, 2018
Pays well but you will earn every penny and less if your salary. Benefits were okay but not now. Time off is good but good luck taking it. Corporate changes all the time. Management changes but keeps the bad ones. The workers are good poleople

Production
Machinist (Former Employee) –  Peabody, MAMarch 16, 2018
Ran seal tooth rings for Jet Engines. When possible was instructed to run Parpas machine.
Our supervisor was not qualified to run manufacturing. He showed favorites to people he liked.
The work place culture was slow, envious and jealous.
Hardest part of this place is trying to get training on other machines.
Most enjoyable part was long runs on parts.
Pros
None
Cons
Health care was outrageous and no bonuses

High stress invironment
Machinist (Current Employee) –  Stuart, FLMarch 11, 2018
Not a bad place to work. Wages are 30% less than they should be. I have no other complainants than these. Work with new machinery and good tooling. Fixturing could be better. Management is fair. Once you get stuck on an off shift there is no moment to a better one. Day shift is out of reach for most trades.
Pros
Decent benefits
Cons
High stress

A company with potential
Quality Control Engineer (Former Employee) –  Manchester, CTJanuary 18, 2018
This is an average Company, challenges to overcome in teaming and atmosphere, MRB issues to overcome, Long Work Days, High Expectations with insufficient time for the amount of work required along with the accuracy required. Information should be readily organized and available must be searched for. Most of workforce are good people, with a few people who consistently run to tell tales. Company would improve greatly with better communication and cooperation. This is not a bad company to work for it will challenge you for all your ability. If an employee is in a QE position for more than a year they will adapt.
Pros
There is a lot to do and many improvements needed
Cons
Pay does not balance with time required

Working Environment
IT USER AND NETWORK SUPPORT SPECIALIST (Former Employee) –  Stuart, FLJanuary 7, 2018
The job activities are not unreasonably challenging but often appear daunting because of the management style that prevails. There is often some level of preferential treatment in regards to training and advancement.

The work is fulfilling in the sense that there are several challenges ranging from internal IT related issues to a combination of IT/Production issues. The environment is dynamic and conducive to developing problem solving skills

Several promises are made regarding the opportunity for training but those opportunities are provided for some more than others. Management is centralized to another location leaving some areas without reasonable responses to important issues.

There is little scope for advancement due to organizational structure and the encouragement to personal growth and development through continued education and training.
Pros
Challenging multifaceted environment
Cons
INadequate scope for advancement

not great at all
Machinist (Former Employee) –  Stuart, FLDecember 28, 2017
dont do it unless youre desperate, managment is terrible, its a classic good old boys club there. also, when you work alot of overtime near the end of the month, they somehow manage to screw up your paycheck and put it on the next weeks

Horrible Place to work
QE (Current Employee) –  Manchester, CTDecember 5, 2017
This is a losing company and is only going in one direction. Horrible benefits that consistently cost more every year, quality is non-existent, forced to work overtime, job is threatened if you don't stamp off on parts and just move them. New management team doesn't know how to run an aviation company, many engineers put the dollar sign first before quality.
Pros
some of the people there are truly kind
Cons
people no longer care about multiple things, quality being the most significant

Typical aerospace company. Lots of good people.
Machinist Operator (Current Employee) –  Peabody, MAOctober 15, 2017
Hours are demanding so if you like overtime that’s great. Management team is improved. Personnel resources are a bit thinned out. Customers have a big impact on the business operations. Pace is comfortable but be expected to run multiple machines. A lot of great people there to help out under skilled employees.
Pros
Lots of hours, paid lunch on nights, good people.
Cons
Health insurance isn’t the best

Resistance Welder (Former Employee) –  Manchester, CTSeptember 28, 2017
It's hard to find a job where they have no thrive to learn American Sign Language. I've worked there for almost two years and it was under an agency pay with no vacation or sick day. I enjoyed meeting people and especially the different type of work. My position as a welder in Paradigm Precision was a new experience I will take with me.

Technician (Current Employee) –  Stuart, FLSeptember 20, 2017
Get your money at the door or you will get 1% all the way to retirement. Once you're there you will receive a nickname and will be referred to by it for the rest of your career, by all of management.
Pros
There still open
Cons
Will not fit on one line.

Soul sucking atmosphere
Supervisor (Current Employee) –  Stuart, FLAugust 8, 2017
Probably the worst experience of my life professionally. Every stereotype of what you don't want is part of the daily life here, stay away. If you aren't one of the inner circle your influence is nil. There is no clear cut responsibility or accountability, just finger pointing and chest beating by ignorant, out of touch senior leadership.
Pros
None
Cons
Hostile work environment, treated like a number to be used and thrown away.
