    I worked at Cessna full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good life/work balance. Even thought it's a large company, each department treats you like a person. Co-workers were more like friends than just cube-mates.

    Cons

    It is the aviation industry and the last few years cuts had to be made. Some of these have been very deep and lots of knowledge has been let go. During this last round it was surprising how many were laid off.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat the employees you have left with lots of respect, they are your future!
