Great guys on shop floor
Blade manufacturer (Former Employee) –  Coventry18 February 2018
Management ruined the company and don't care about the shop floor at all. Good money and easy work but this isn't the only place you can get this as many of us have found.

Maintenance team member (Current Employee) –  Nottingham, Nottinghamshire25 January 2018
Good job, but poor management, and a poor work life balance.
All about graduates, spreadsheet's, unfortunately they can't see the wood for the trees at the moment.

Interesting workplace but very slow paced
Manufacturing Systems Engineer (Current Employee) –  Derby, Derbyshire18 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.

Solid with good prospects for Engineers
Senior Engineer (Current Employee) –  Worldwide8 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.
Pros
Solid excellent engineering
Cons
Moves slowly in terms of change.

Fast Paced and Dedicated
Project Controller (Former Employee) –  Derby, Derbyshire4 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.

Awful place to work
Business Administrator (Current Employee) –  Derby30 December 2017
If you want to work somewhere where you are exposed to bullying and harrassment on a daily basis by untrained managers then this is the place for you.

Promotions are based on who you know not intelligence or work ethic and if you prefer to do the job you're employed to do then thats fine but it will get you nowhere.

Repair & Overhaul Engineer (Current Employee) –  Bristol, Bristol20 November 2017
This is coming from a new persons perspective. The management is a joke and wants to be your friend more then your boss, people are lazy and want to do the minimum for the same amount of money (embarrassing are my thoughts personally) but it could get better or maybe I just expected more
