    good place to work

    Project Integrator (Current Employee) Wichita, KS

    ProsThe company has a lot of work to do with the new L85 Program. take the ball and run comes to mind. If you want something you are empowered to go out and get it.

    ConsThere seems to be no one with their "arms around" the entire program. We ae not all on the same page. There is a lot of extra work beinf done that doesn'e need to be.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    ME @ Learjet

    Manufacturing Engineer Methods (Current Employee) Wichita, KS

    ProsVery cool A/C and an exciting lean transformation in process. I am very proud of what has been going on in the Learjet Factory.

    ConsMother ship makes all decisions from Montreal, and they are very much in silos when it comes to sharing information between sites.

    Advice to Senior ManagementThey need to listen to the specialists that they have hired, focus on what their future A/C need to be competitive in the market place. If they intend to ever meet a schedule they cannot be afraid to show that they need help, or are behind so that a mitigation plan can be enacted. Choose the right materials for the proposed design and ensure that Stress, Design, and Operations all know how to properly analyse that material. Otherwise it gets designed the way they know and are comfortable with and you end up paying 3 times the price for a material, for a design that does not lend itself to the manufacturing process.

    Good place if you want quick advancement. Bad management.

    Senior Project Manager (Former Employee) Wichita, KS

    ProsSmall company gives the ability to wear many hats, and meet a lot of people within the organization.

    ConsPoorly run company. A lot of fire fighting. If you are smart, then you probably be the smartest in the company and will be able to teach yourself alot. There are alot of knowledge & skill gaps within the company, though, so not a lot of opportunity to learn from capable leaders.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet up to speed with modern management practices. Hire good people in management, even if it mean paying more.

    Learjet 86 Program

    Program Analyst (Current Employee)

    ProsPay in the aircraft industry is pretty good. The technology at the office is pretty up-to-date and reliable.

    ConsThe culture on the L85 program is crazed. Everyone is in panic and survival mode. Officially, the company favors work/life balance and employee health, but in practice, daily meetings are scheduled before 8 am and after 4:30 pm, everyone is expected to work overtime that they don't get paid for, and no one leaves the office for lunch or anything like that. There are some very good people working here, including management, but the actual upper-level management of this project has been erratic and reactionary. Stress and anxiety trickle down the ranks to everyone. If you're passionate about aircraft and want to work in the industry long-term, it is worth it to work here and try to climb the corporate ladder. If you're looking for a job that is a source of income rather than fulfillment, it's probably not worth the headaches to work here.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe much more conservative when setting budget and scheduling goals. Give employees the time needed to do quality work. Fully evaluate program strategies before "pulling the trigger," we're having a rough time hitting the moving targets.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Overworked;No Consistency in Policies;Favourtism of Employees

    Planner (Former Employee)

    ProsGood for resume building; interesting work; colleagues are pretty good.

    Conspoor pay; favourtism;policies interepreted to managements benefits; forced to work o/t without o/t pay.

    Advice to Senior ManagementDo not expect people to work o/t without being paid; when you have a policy it should be absolutely clear to everyone and subject to interpretation; stop changing company/employee direction. HR and Management are not in synch with each other. Management says one thing then HR says something different. Unless you know people in positions of "power" management will not support you.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
