    Pros

    Leave at noon on Fridays, downtown location (but that is changing soon),

    Cons

    Pay is low compared to other aircraft companies in the area, they tend to promote people that are in their "circle" rather than the best people for the job. Minorities seem to be missing from leadership positions, even when better qualified. Wichita location seems to be winding down. not sure about longevity with company.

    Advice to Management

    Change management up a bit. There are several under-qualified individuals in leadership positions. Watch the treatment of minorities and women...the engineers (again in management roles) need to move on into the 21st century in regard to minorities in the workplace (a lot of racist remarks were overheard while I was there). A hostile work environment if you are minority. Needs a house cleaning at upper levels and training!!

    Pros

    Checks were on time...and that's about it!!!!

    Cons

    No structure, no leadership, the right hand doesn't know what the left hand is doing. HR is so screwed up that it's ridiculous!!!! Who is running the show?!?!?!?! Pay for blue collar workers is below industry standard and they expect people to choke it down with a smile on their face!!!! We need a union to protect us but Airbus FAL is trying to convince us that we don't need one. They are more worried about their bonuses than fair pay for the people who actually produce the airplanes!

    Advice to Management

    Clean out your corporate HR department, get some real leadership in place and pay fair wages. P.S...the union is coming!!!!!

    Pros

    No pressure. Decent pay. Job security.Plus you can build a collection of desk models of helicopters and airplanes.

    Cons

    When I worked there, there was no commitment, and hence no support, for building the U.S. business outside of commercial airliners. All lip service. I hear from my former colleagues that the change in CEO didn't change things.

    Advice to Management

    Decide whether you are serious about pursuing sales in the U.S. defense market. If so, make real investments. Otherwise, stop pretending that it is something the firm wants to do.

    Pros

    They had some cool products at one time

    Cons

    They do not care about their employees...HR runs the show here...for the company NOT the staff. Any vision the R&D management team had is gone.

    Advice to Management

    Clear out the antiquated "everybody is afraid of HR" mentality and breath some new ideas into this organization. Your employees don't owe you anything more than 40 hours a week. ..treat them like garbage and you'll get garbage.
