Manufacturing Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) – Riverside, CA – July 18, 2018
Management is poor and not supportive. Human resources is only for the upper level managers and do not have time to talk to supervisors or hourly employees. Very very political in the way they promote and will not listen to any ideas coming from people who are not in their circle, even supervisors.
The benefits are great, including full ride educational assistance. if you can tolerate the constant disrespect, stay there, get your education, then leave. there is no contract for the education assistance, so you can finish school and leave.
Incompetent, inexperienced management at Pomona site.
Schediling Staff (Former Employee) – Pomona, CA – July 17, 2018
Small raises, no lean or continuous improvement even though they claim to drive ACE. Only promote favorites and not much room to grow. Could pick up some very bad habits if you don't know better. Management has little to no experience in lean aerospace manufacturing and are not interested in improving processes. Supervisors are just the favorites picked off the floor regardless of lack of experience. Unethical management.
3 weeks vacation, gym
No growth opportunities, very low pay compared to other aerospace companies, even some commerical ones
There are very few people who will genuinely care about you in this company. The "rank and yank" culture encourages even the most human entering this work environment to side-swipe and crush coworkers. There is no collaboration or team work. You're better off surviving among Velociraptors.
Pay was good, but you sacrifice your family, friends and health.
Working here will shave several years from your life.
There's a lot of room for improvement in all of the departments within the company
Assistant Technician (Current Employee) – Fairfield, CA – June 27, 2018
The workplace culture is very stressful and frustrating. It's either very busy or very slow, there's typically no in between. The hardest part of the job is the slow advancement and low salary. You do a lot more work than what they pay you. You also do tasks that are not part of your job description. The enjoyable part is you get to work with wonderful people who are going through the same struggle in the company.
Medical Insurance sucks, low salary, slow progression, very little advancement
I actually worked at Goodrich Corp(purchased by UTC). Lots of design work there. They were always very busy, which I prefer. All Management decisions were made at the home office in SC, so very little got changed or improved at Goodrich. Low level management often times had little idea what was produced or what was needed. The most difficult part of the job was the fact that Goodrich was "for sale" most of the 11 years I was there(2 as contractor) and they acted like it. No new ideas or improvements, just keep production moving. Many people lost their jobs in order to make the bottom line look appealing to any prospective buyers!
Electronic Technician (Former Employee) – Phoenix, AZ – June 4, 2018
the products ,I was to work on were intermittent , which forced me to compete for work with overtime hogs from previous shift , which meant I either had to wait for an hour or so to work on something or go home with no work that night . The politics were horrible .
