    I worked at Learjet full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company has people that are great at their job. Engineers, Project Integrators, Supply Chain, all want to get the job done and do it the right way. Most managers will make efforts to make sure you have what you need to do your job. Managers take the feedback in surveys very seriously and make efforts to improve what they have control over. There is a team atmosphere at the working level across all platforms and job descriptions of genuine caring for one another. The company has great processes, but at the Learjet site, they never staffed accordingly to follow those procedural requirements.

    Cons

    Upper level management dumps many of their issues (especially those that come out of annual surveys) on their managers. Many of those issues are not within the control of those managers. The company made some questionable decisions in the methods of construction of its new business jet. They also over extended financial resources on too many concurrent programs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Instead of asking people that come to you to solve problems out of their control, take a genuine interest in our employees.
