Senior Leadership is divided

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at BE Aerospace full-time for more than 5 years

ProsWell paying if you are credentialed and in management; Excellent Sales & Marketing functions; An Engineering leader in their markets; A ton of talented employees.

ConsToo many chief wannabees; Very secretive between departments; Far too many fiefdoms; rank and file is treated like tissue paper;

Advice to Senior ManagementDiscourage the bloodletting between departments, there is too much infighting leaving behind way too much collateral damage in the lower ranks.

Horrible treatment on the first day!

Purchasing Assistant (Former Employee)
Westminster, CA

I worked at BE Aerospace as a contractor for less than a year

ProsA/E Aerospace is a huge company. May have good opportunity for advancement.

ConsThey expect you to know everything in the first two hours of training.

Advice to Senior ManagementHire a decent employee who talk less in spanish and less words "I don't know and I don't care" everytime you ask something. Have some respect and have an open minded. The person who trained me, she may have 15 to 17 years experience but she is not a great a Senior Buyer at all. Her title doesn't fit to her.

I'm content

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at BE Aerospace full-time

ProsRelaxed most the time, have free breakfast on Fridays which is employees certainly like. There is career advancement if you pursue it.

ConsWhen deadlines hit, things get crazy, but then again that's business anywhere. There are a small handful of managers who don't care about their people and see them as pieces to get them to the top.

Lack of Work / Life Balance

Senior Engineer (Current Employee)
Everett, WA

I have been working at BE Aerospace full-time for more than a year

ProsEngineering staff are paid overtime, not time and a half but base plus $8 which is unheard of in most industries for engineers. Working hours run 7-days a week which works well for contract engineers.

ConsThe work load is no less than 10 hours a days, 7-days a week including holidays. This usually turns more into 12 hour days with some days exceeding this amount. Your personal life is put on hold for extended periods of time.

Advice to Senior ManagementCommunication and basic processes are needed to improve efficiency and quality of work. Poor direction and redundant work is currently the norm.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

B/E Aerospace Potential but unstable

EDI Analyst (Current Employee)
Miami, FL

I have been working at BE Aerospace as a contractor for more than a year

ProsI liked the culture and most of the people were very nice. The company is an exiting place to work and is growing fast.

ConsManagement is afraid of some of the old-timers who have no vision for the future of the company. Turn-over is rapid and without compassion.

Advice to Senior Managementquit
