    I worked at BE Aerospace

    Pros

    Ability to work independently. Necessary Training provided

    Cons

    Although a person works for BE and proves their selves worthy enough to be offered a position; that position can be taken away without a piece of paper stating you have a college degree.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A college degree does not mean a person has the ability or knowledge to do the job. Experience counts.

    Pros

    Great Benefits, Great coworkers, Nice building

    Cons

    Management could care less about the worker bees
    They don't list to the employee but to only to other managers
    Some times the best person for the job is the one already doing it

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look down and around at the ones who are actually doing the job
    Talk one on one with employees sometimes
    Don't just listen to Managers and VPs, LISTEN TO YOUR OTHER EMPLOYEES

    Current Employee - Industrial Engineer in Westminster, CA

    I have been working at BE Aerospace full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    I enjoyed coming to work everyday inwhich I would make the machines sing, even better than when manufactured. Being free to make decisions to better the company without corporate interference.

    Cons

    The challenge at this facility in WESTMINSTER, CA. is having young kids out of school with no experience, not willing to listen or learn from seasoned employees, because of a social gap, run this place as management? This destroys a company from the inside out, even one as wonderful as B/E AEROSPACE.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    MNGMNT, please do not hire EGO's, hire a work force that will get us to the top where we belong as a team.

    I worked at BE Aerospace

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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

    I have been working at BE Aerospace full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Good pay if you are willing to work hard and a great work environment. I actually enjoy going to work. Management has little giveaways, such as lunches and gift cards during the holiday.

    Cons

    A lot of really good ideas are shelved because of old management ideology. The only way they solve problems is to throw money at it. One of the most inefficient process and procedures I have ever seen.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are a lot of employees with vast amount of experience, listen to them.

    Pros

    Flexibility, 9/80 work week, medium sized business unit

    Cons

    No organizational culture, cost cutting at employee's expense, limited motivators, management sometimes clueless about technical issues.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Move away from old model of management. Understand what intrinsically motivates employees, create a culture of creativity and open communication. Learn to lead instead of manage.
