    I worked at Cessna full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Enjoyed what I did each day, enjoyed the people I worked with. Had numerous group leads and got along well with all of them. Good work-life balance

    Cons

    Pay could be better. 1st level management and the personal growth to that level is being phased out for higher level managers being asked manage dozens of people. Loss of too many experienced engineers who are all replaced by new college hires.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There have been numerous cancelled projects, and with each, the confidence of management to make correct decisions is eroded.
    Work harder to keep the quality employees who are fleeing Cessna to take higher paying jobs elsewhere.

    Interview Details

    Started with online application, didn't hear back for over a month. Was asked to do a phone interview (about 30 minutes or less). The following week I was asked to schedule a Skype interview (I think the following week). 3 or 4 of the hirers and an HR exec interviewed me for about an hour. Received a phone call about a week and a half later
