    Pros

    Got some good trips to exciting places. Reasonable pay and conitions

    Cons

    Management have no direction or strategy and lurch from one crisis to the next. They do not listen to staff and are incredibly resistance to suggestions and change

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the staff - they have good ideas.

    Pros

    Good place to work if your commute is 5 miles.

    Cons

    RC had an opportunity to make a difference. Instead they recycled and promoted incompetent managers, directors, and VPs. Management is top heavy with too many Directors. Hard working and dedicated employees are rewarded with more work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retire ARINC VPs and Directors. Bring in RC or outside experience.

    Pros

    they still pay salaries after the "acquisition" to the half of their staff not YET laid-off but everyone left is "looking"

    Cons

    they don't pay salaries after the "acquisition" to the half of their staff laid-off even though they were by far the best employees. All that us left is disinterested and empire-protecting Management who have not yet succeeded in jumping ship before the whole ship goes under

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retire

    I worked at ARINC full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The majority of people I have worked with are extremely bright and very personable. The benefits are actually pretty good there compared to most places I've worked.

    Cons

    The management has shown favoritism in certain cases. The are a lot of office politics as well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think management should involve some of the lower level employees in there decision making more often.

    I worked at ARINC full-time

    Pros

    Good benefits (health insurance, 401k contribution, etc.). Easy to bond with coworkers since everybody hated their job as much as I did.

    Cons

    Only way to advance is brown-nosing. Limited raise potential. Punitive company culture with limited recognition for accomplishments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to suggestions made by your employees - even those that have only been there for a short period of time. If turnover is astronomical, it should be a clue that you need to change the way you treat your employees.
