    Pros

    Nice clean building in Miami. Rick Sharpe was a class act GM. Good Cuban coffee breaks.

    Cons

    Amin Khoury carved up the company to make it ripe for selling and make himself richer. Constant Sr. Management turnover left everyone guessing what heavy handed changes were coming next and who was getting fired. Despite record breaking sales, low profits means no or small bonuses. Making pennies on aircraft parts means penny pinching, mostly in salaries. Warehouse workers, the guys that actually do the work of shipping the parts to make the company money, are all temps and only make $9/hour. Human Resources Managers treat employees like ignorant children. Maybe that's why two HR VPs just got shown the door. Bottom line: stay away for now.

    Pros

    You only need to be there 25 yrs +, friends with the right people and a good liar to get ahead. LOL no pro

    Cons

    -Not about what you know
    -Not innovative, very inefficient, management not open to improvements that save time & resources
    -Management is all about covering their behind, micromanaging & controlling dictatorship
    -Don't say anything at work you don't want repeated (person who you think is your friend, supervisor, manager, director, anyone), they all talk smack about every single person
    -Least professional work environment I've ever encountered
    -For a publicly traded company they have a lot of ethical issues, and because everyone talks it's no big secret
    -Not gay friendly

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of everyone that's been there 25+ years, for the most part they're all stuck in their old ways that do not scale to today's problem

    A combination of old and new would be great, but that is unattainable due to the CLIQUE

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Management 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 Management

    quit

    Pros

    Solid Benefits, Decent Facilities, Great High-End Leaders

    Cons

    Very Political, Horrible Middle-Management, No Leadership, Low Pay, Awful Infrastructure

    Advice to Management

    BE spends thousands on programs such as 5S training, LEAN 101 and other associated programs, yet when we leave to go back to our offices, it isn't there, no one uses and worst people especially middle-management seem to do the opposite. Mr. President, we spoke several times at these classes and yet I can't speak to my own supervisor for FEAR of her retaliation. Re-evaluate your middle-management.

    Pros

    Great benefits and lots of work. Business growing at good rate.

    Cons

    Only 50% of annual Earned vacation can be rolled over at year end and they do not do pay out, therefore use or lose. You have to be careful not to be over dedicated to your responsibilities to them because in the end you will be punished for it.

    Advice to Management

    Re-evaluate the practice of punishing your employees that are so dedicated to the needs of the company that they do not get to take their well earned vacations. If you can't afford their talent to be out, at least pay it out to them at year end. The employee has earned it and the company has gained the returns from such high devotion. Shame to punish your most highly devoted. I am not one, as I won't be cheated.
