    I worked at BE Aerospace full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Ability to wear multiple hats. Opportunity for advancing one's knowledge.

    Cons

    The Global Seating Aftermarket Group is in a downward spiral due to poor middle and upper management. AVOID! They continue to have lay-offs, starting back in spring of 2013, keeping only the young/new/less experienced employees to reduce costs. At the same time management continues to point fingers and stab their co-workers in their backs in attempt to keep their positions and/or to try to advance their position even though they are not stellar employees. The teams do NOT work well together, especially when there are cross-business groups (Aftermarket with OEM). HR is NOT for the employee, it is soley focused on requests of management!!! They will not investigate inter-office issues un-biased/truthfully. Pay was not commensurate with the roles/responsibilities given.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat employees with respect. Do not string carrots to entice your employees with empty promises. Provide recognition for hard work. Allow those best suited for the job at hand, the ones performing the work, to work with the intended customer to avoid delays/set-backs/mis-directions from the "grapevine" effect. HR should do exit interviews with employees to have a solid understanding of what working conditions exist.

    Pros

    Pay was good. Close to home, for me at least.

    Cons

    Very disorganized. Poor training, not enough equipment IE computers for all employees. Long hours. Was not made to feel part of the team. No feedback from people that were training. Too overworked to properly train.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give feedback to those that are being trained. If they are not doing well, let them know so that they can improve upon their weaknesses.

    Pros

    So far, I've enjoyed working with some great and intelligent people. I've been given the opportunity to get involved in some projects to help make the company more dynamic and efficient.

    Cons

    Due to the tremendous growth of the company over the past 5 years, the business processes have not caught up with the growth of the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make an effort to include a multi-dimension perspective from every functional area within the company and less of an engineering-only perspective. Also, stress the importance of the mission statement and values of the company so that everyone has a clear understanding of where the company is going.

    I worked at BE Aerospace as a contractor (less than a year)

    Pros

    They allow you to have a lot of independance to work on your projects. They try to set out specific goals for you each year.

    Cons

    It is sometimes difficult to get stuff done because they are under staffed and people don't have a lot of time for anything that is for continuous improvement of existing lines. The major issue is that products are so low volume and diverse for each customer that people spend all there time trying to meet customer demands. They also have to support products for 10-15 yrs so there is a ton of legacy work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need a continuous improvement team that can perform audits without needing to support customer needs.

    I have been working at BE Aerospace

    Pros

    Worked a few years in the Winston-Salem based seating business segment as Senior Program Manager. I enjoyed the people I worked with and the area very much. management was very demanding with fair compensation and an outstanding relocation package

    Cons

    For me personally, the seating business was simply not technically challenging enough thus, decided to leave the company after two short years making my departure more of a personal choice.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management was visible/approachable and available to the staff. However, could have had a better communication about ongoing and future business activities and challenges.
