Great guys on shop floor Blade manufacturer (Former Employee) – Coventry – 18 February 2018 Management ruined the company and don't care about the shop floor at all.

Yes 1 No Report Interesting workplace but very slow paced Manufacturing Systems Engineer (Current Employee) – Derby, Derbyshire – 18 January 2018 Although all colleagues are helpful and friendly, many people have been in the company too long to know anything different to how they do things today. Coming from an external setting you can see what needs to be changed but the business processes to realise such change are prohibitive. The workplace culture is very positive and everyone is supportive and helpful. Was this review helpful? Yes 2 No Report modern workplace Associate Electronics Engineer (Current Employee) – Birmingham, West Midlands – 11 January 2018 modern building with good facilities. Need to keep hold of younger engineers and listen to workers feedback. Work staff are very friendly and helpful Was this review helpful? Yes 2 No Report Solid with good prospects for Engineers Senior Engineer (Current Employee) – Worldwide – 8 January 2018 A great product with good people. Quality orientated organisation that shines above the rest Management tend to be reactive and need to be forward thinking at lowest levels. Change in senior management at CEO levels has affected policy throughout the company but this change is occurring too often. The job is always firefighting and some times leaves time management behind. All in all there is no better career company right from finance to design, its all there. Global brand. Ive gone through the change from one airframe to lots of airframe opportunities.
Solid excellent engineering
Moves slowly in terms of change.

Yes No Report Fast Paced and Dedicated Project Controller (Former Employee) – Derby, Derbyshire – 4 January 2018 The projects are fast paced, exciting and at times a little daunting as there is so much going on. The people are smart and hardworking, at times there is not the time to provide support and development, however when the time does permit there is structured classroom based training and in situ coaching. The culture is of dedicated and hardworking people willing to go the extra mile to support certification and hit customer milestones. Was this review helpful?
