Challenging with job satisfaction and recognition.
Snr LAME (Licenced Aircraft Maintenance Engineer) (Former Employee) –  Sydney and Avalon Airports18 September 2014
For many years we were considered "World's Best " in Engineering and our reputation was second to none. Staff were well trained and proud of 'our' company. We had respect from fellow employees and the public. The past 10 years has seen a major transformation in the company direction through 'new age' management. This has led to a reduction in training, skills and job security and as well as confidence in current management. Many jobs have now been sent offshore and skills and quality have been impacted. Legacy engineers are proud of our past achievements but the determination by the company to reduce costs and seek alternate , cheaper manpower overseas, has seen the loss of "worlds best practice" and public satisfaction. It is a great diverse company to work for, if you are not in the firing line. It offers many opportunities to grow your skills; meet and work with some very talented people. It places 'Safety' before 'Schedule' to ensure we all go home each day to our families. It ensures we all get to celebrate the company achievements and continually challenges us to grow and improve. Our rewards are recognition of a job well done. I would always encourage people to apply to this great Australian company.
Pros
Talent pool, staff travel benefits, well paid position with responsibilities.
Cons
Early starts in harsh conditions to meet schedule

Fair with room for improvement
Aircraft Maintenance Engineer (Former Employee) –  Avalon,H511 November 2013
Shift work in a typical day lots of things to do and learn.

There are areas that would benefit in improvement through closer collaboration of different people from different parts of the organisational hierarchy,
