Miserable

2.17

Company Culture

Poor at best. Have met only a handful of employees that have anything positive to say.

Support from management

Management as far as QA is concerned doesn't know what they are doing.

Teamwork

Communication between Glenair employees outside of management is good. Everyone looks out for each other. Unfortunately the in house sub contractors are often difficult to work with as they have differing ideologies from Glenair.

Freedom to work independently

As soon as you finish your initial training (takes about 5 minutes) you are left alone by immediate supervisors. Production planners will interfere when an issue has occurred somewhere in the work flow, but that is normal.

Internal Communication

This is the biggest issue. Departments outside of your own will make changes to your departments daily operations. These changes will be made during one on one conversations even if it has consequences for an entire building. Information is rarely disseminated properly leading to stupid mistakes.

Career Development

There is lateral mobility. No real upwards mobility. There is access to onsite training.

Overall compensation for your work

Medical benefits are present. Salary is well below average. Management justifies it by saying you have unlimited overtime.

Office / Work Environment

At least in my building, the HVAC is terrible and the subcontractors are out of control, leading to a very noisy environment. Well lit, and relatively clean.

Work-Life Balance

A 12 hour schedule isn't mandatory but is expected. Working less will net you lower incentive bonus. Also due to well below average compensation, the incentive bonus and overtime is the only way to make it remotely comparable.

Job Security

Glenair wont fire employees. But they will reassign and reduce the incentive bonus if the 12 hour request schedule isn't met or they feel productivity is low.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Force management into the same schedule as the rest of the employees. Doubt the schedule demands will last more than a week.
  • Departments need to communicate through managers and supervisors to appropriately flow down the constant changes that occur thus reducing the errors from the lack of communication.

What I like about the company

Autonomy is great. Most employees are helpful. High job security.

What I dislike about the company

Management expects a 6 day 66+ hour work week. The option is present to switch to salary, but is frowned upon. Pay is below market value. Parking is a nightmare.

What I like about the company

Work security. They keep people. No layoffs.

What I dislike about the company

Low Pay, treating people as machines (want them to work 12 hours daily to get some more money ), old fashion management, they don't appreciate people experience, know nothing about employees satisfaction and don't care about it, physical working place not the best, difficult parking
