Suggestions for improvement

  • I wouldn't change anything. They cover all the important aspects that a company would.

What I like about the company

I have work for 11 years and have been treated fairly. The people who I work with are great and work as a team.

What I dislike about the company

Although there are opportunities to advance there are not very many. The people who work for Cobham have kept their jobs for years so there isn't much chance to advance.
