    Wake up and pay your low lvel techies market rate (I'm not 1)

    Chief Bottle Washer (Current Employee) Saint Louis, MO (US)

    ProsFlexable work time.
    G8 health ins. they actually pay when your sick and cover many doc.'s hospital ect.
    Good 401k plan Matching upto 4% and the investment choices are mostly good reputable mutual funds.

    ConsLocation, St Louis is inexpensive but utterly uninspiring.
    Lots of overtime diring lauch windows (I'm on salary)
    The left hand at times subverts the right hand and vise versa.
    Compensation of higher level people is pretty good but the lower-entery level people are paid so little that they leave after 6months to a year (just enough time that you really get them productive). They find out they can get a 60% salary increase acroos town.

    Advice to Senior ManagementListen to the tech people. Eliminate the heat ticket system.
    Reduce Thortons attempted take over of the corperate culture, they were sold as a dieing comany rife with customer disatifaction and "big aerospace" problems.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
