Pros

Larger company.
Diverse portfolio of business.
Interesting product lines and child companies.
Potential for living in numerous locations if an employee wants to transfer jobs.

Cons

Larger company.
Six Sigma focus is not useful.
Compensation is average, and should be better.
Command and Control.
Discontinuity in IT systems.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Reevaluate ACE, and the relentless jamming-down-our-throats of it. We think a good majority of it is waste.
Provide monies for a serious upgrade to the facility.
Mutual Trust and Respect was a hallmark of Goodrich Corp. Practice it.
ACE is, overall, a good thing, yet its statistically-based focus is NOT lean or Lean Manufacturing. Goodrich Corp walked Lean a looong time, and was, overall, a pretty Lean company. ACE is muddling things.
Adopt a more employee-centric vacation policy which allows yearly carry-over.
CSC hasn't proven to be of benefit to our IT systems. Jury's still out I guess.
