Chaotic environment with unrealistic expectations
Manager (Former Employee), Coatesville, PAJanuary 21, 2016
The average work day was unpredictable, very stressful, and chaotic. The upper management team always stayed in a reactive state, as opposed to being proactive and well planned. The COO would actually verbally harass the floor technicians on a daily basis, so image how he treated his direct reports. We seemed to be in a constant upheaval and everyone was expected to work long days and even weekends, with no end in sight.

Good management, multiple company environment, and 3PL interaction
Non Conformance Coordinator (Former Employee), XPO Logstics, Fairburn, GAJanuary 20, 2016
Pros: Flex time, Lockheed Martin acquisition and work challenges
Cons: 3PL work challenges
A typical day is working with the 3PL team to resolve process challenges and moving aerospace materials to their final destination.
Lessons learned: multiple company interactions creates opportunity to share accomplishment for future advancements in productivity.
The management was very supportive in providing a good work environment.
The co-workers are excellent partners in managing the daily operational needs of the multi-company site.
The hardest part of the job was supporting production increases and the 3PL turnover in personnel.
The most enjoyable part of the job was helping to bring this site online. And working for United Technologies Corporation and Sikorsky Aircraft Company.

It is OK for now.
Aircraft Contractor (Current Employee), Coatesville, PADecember 30, 2015
Pros: Cafeteria on site, three or four break rooms with vending machines.
Cons: My department lacks co-worker profesionalism towards each other.
An OK place to work. They treat employees fairly for the most part. nothing great or bad about this place. I have worked at facilities that send contractors home when it is slow,,, so they have been good at finding us work instead of sending us home without pay. However, alot of uncertainty heading into 2016.

UTC - Sikorsky
Manager (Current Employee), Coatesville, PAOctober 30, 2015
Pros: Industry leading teams and individuals
Cons: Recent downsizing and un-vetted appointments
Talented teams and individuals working highly complex manufacturing scenarios and platforms -- manufacturing helicopters.

Recent key appointments to leadership positions appear to be prompted by jockeying or paybacks within the past year-- since the announcement of a potential sale of the company.

In fact, the confirmed company sale from UTC to Lockheed is very positive. With luck, the un-vetted appointments will be quickly discovered and corrected with the new ownership.
