    Pros

    Excellent compensation package, current technology, large budget for training & education, practice lean principals, excellent safety programs.

    Cons

    Unions rules production activity. Manufacturing manager's hands are tied and are not given the authority to manage production, quality, attendance and disciplinary concerns. HR and Senior Manufactuing management cowards to union and disciplines managers who posses integrity and try to do the right thing. Most HRBPs don't last long in this toxic environment. I would not recommend this business to front line management or HRBP professionals.

    Advice to Management

    More support to your front line manufacturing managers. You tend to lose the ones who have the integrity to challenge the current culture. You can't train integrity, only support it.

    Cons

    -coworkers can be very competitive and cutthroat
    -food services is highly questionable

    Advice to Management

    -ensure that you are maintaining good talent through solid salary increases
    -reduce the use of the term 'innovative' - it has lost all meaning!
    -don't try to do too many things at once, try and excel at one thing.

    Pros

    good enterprise culture, respect people. Some engineers are really good. You can learn much from the daily work and the best practice overall in airframe design and analysis.

    Cons

    difficult to get promotion (level up). Once starting salary is fixed, salary increase later is really humble every year. Office politics are obvious. too many meetings that engineers have to be involved. Very annoying.

    Advice to Management

    Waste too much time in meetings (endless meetings). Many managers have few idea about the nature of the technical work that his/her team members are doing. Basically what they can do is talking and scheduling. Airplanes are made by doing, not by talking.
