Up early and set out the work that I will be doing. This work is a one man job, prepping parts for the oven and 30 minute preheat at 530 deg F. safety is of importance. Ajustable weld table makes life easy. Job is all hands on.

Human Resources does not protect you when your boss harasses you everyday and does not leave you alone. Don’t waste your time applying. Toxic work environment.

Overall, the company has a great benefit and compensation plan. There is shift work involved. The training is on the job and you have a mentor assisting you through the training period.

Old school; management culture. Once you get in you will never get a raise or noticed. Its a revolving door of employees leaving. The local joke is that Magellan is a trainer of what not to do when you get a real job

Magellan Aerospace is a very fast-paced and at times stressful environment, however co-workers are extremely supportive of each other and there is a real feeling of teamwork and belonging. It is a great place to settle down for long-term employment, where you will form very close working relationships and be exposed to opportunities for advancement.
Pros
Fantastic benefits, flexibility, on-site wellness centre & parking, opportunities for advancement, and much more.
Cons
Communication between different departments could use improvement.

I have enjoyed my 10 years of service and challenges of my work performed at Magellan. Many times, I would miss the coffee breaks just to solve a problem because of the dedication and passion I possess. I worked well with fellow employees and enjoyed passing on my knowledge to them. We all make mistakes and it is important to help employees learn from their mistakes. Over the years, I have experienced the transition of computer accounting programs. I am so grateful for the many experiences I have learnt at Magellan.
Pros
Social & Welfare Club
Cons
Air conditioning

Good company to work. Senior Management is very traditional and stuck in the 80's. very difficult to move up in the organization, unless you are from the UK.
Pros
Great oppotunity to learn and drive continuous improvements
Cons
Executives set in their ways, culture is resistant to change

Overall, this company is given a poor rating because the employment experience suffered from the following:
Management having unrealistic expectations of employee output,

Workplace peers that cannot be relied on to do their jobs properly,

Lack of a training program for new employees,

The unstated expectation that employees work unpaid overtime.
Pros
Interesting Technical work
Cons
Undue pressure to meet unrealistic project schedules
