    I have been working at Dassault Falcon Jet as an intern (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great pay, good social cover, great working environment, great products

    Cons

    No investment on employees, poor innovation, poor training. To people who are looking for challenging positions: be really cautious!

    Advice to Management

    Invest and listen more to your employees: a great potential spoiled is here!

    I worked at Dassault Falcon Jet as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Gained a lot of design software knowledge. Training was very in depth. Everyone is very nice and easy to get along with. There is a sense of accomplishment knowing your designs are going into a multi million dollar jet.

    Cons

    Seems to be a major rift between upper management and individual departments. Most of the design work is spatial arrangement and customer preference. The "real" engineering happens in France.

    Advice to Management

    Get to know your employees

    I have been working at Dassault Falcon Jet full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    good insurance, reasonable starting salary, easy to commute

    Cons

    The company does not really invest in new hired. There is no training plan or any career path for a new hired employee. You basically have to seek for your own tasks and apply for your own training.

    Advice to Management

    Maybe pay more attention to what the young employees want to learn and try to change.

    I have been working at Dassault Falcon Jet full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Friendly working environment. Great benefits. Promotes from within first if possible. Company tries to promote a family atmosphere and promotes community involvement.

    Cons

    No ERP System makes it hard to connect all departments throughout the company. Management a little detached from employees. No uniform policies for all employees. Each department could have different policy for exact same issue, in addition to handbook. More of a learn as you go office culture.

    I worked at Dassault Falcon Jet full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The pay and the benefits are awesome!

    Cons

    The French have taken over, which is not a bad thing, just the way management treats employees. There are to many people that have changed over the years. The higher you go up in the company, the ruder you get to the employees. They must take a class on "How to hate your employees and treat them with no respect".

    Advice to Management

    Please get off your high horse and come back down to earth. Treat your employees with respect and get the moral back the way it was and your production will improve. Most of the people I talk to that still work there, hate their job.

    Pros

    Great benifits, great pay & good equipment

    Cons

    if you are not French as was the manager was he did not want to hear any new ideas to increase production & improve quality. He had no prior exp in Mfg. As I came in with 25 years from one of the top 3 in Aerospace.

    Advice to Management

    Have more contact with you Mfg Managers, don't only rely on your GM's when you see a high turn around in managers the problem often is the person hiring & firing them.

    Pros

    One of the very few options locally for Aviation/Engineering that pays well for the area. Possibilties for cross training exists as often engineering is slightly undermanned.

    Cons

    French management sometimes suffers from a culture barrier making it difficult for them to understand how American workers' values and goals differ from that of French workers.

    Advice to Management

    A stronger value should be placed upon keeping and rewarding loyal and experienced employees that are asked to work beyond thier "title" or "rank".

    Pros

    Easy work and relatively consistent, easy money. Drawing boxes in Catia.

    Cons

    Management is completely out of touch with what is happening. Favoritism is rampant, You need to be part of the club to moved up to leadership positions I've heard that the engineering department was "cleaned up" so maybe it is better now.

    Advice to Management

    None, they know what they should do to improve, they have just ignored the feedback. At least when I was there, I have heard that there have been some changes.
