    I have been working at Dassault Falcon Jet

    Pros

    Benefits. That's about it. Overtime is available. But a lot of mandatory overtime.

    Cons

    Horrible management. No communication with technicians from crew leads crew chief's and management. No proper training for new hires and green mechanics. No support system. A lot of I'm the best mechanic .horrible attitudes. A lot of back stabbing . Techs leads and crew chief's lie to make themselves look good for management. A lot of favouriresearch from management. If you want to move up here its difficult because manager's and supervisors have their favorites whether they meet qualifications or not. Most of the times not qualified. If you want a personal life looks elsewhere. A lot of mandatory 10 hour shifts and weekends.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your employees with respect. Make them feel noticed. Place the correct people in positions. Supervisors and manager's need to changed. Especially on 2nd shift. Crew chief's need to be re-evaluated.

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

    Get to know your employees

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

    Pros

    Dassault is a family company and hence this location inherits from the culture of the mother company in France. A lot of french employees which gives to the company a very interesting bi-cultural aspect (speaking french is definitely a plus if you think about joining DFJ). People are passionate about the products. Good benefits (health insurance, 401K, flight instruction is subsidized by the company, decent cafeteria)

    Cons

    This office is not very big, and therefore the possibility to evolve professionally are limited if you want to stay in TEB. The Little Rock site (specialized in production) is much bigger. The management is very conservation, there is no real will to recruit talent or high potential (they usually bring Top managers from France).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate more of the objectives of the year for the company and especially the site (e.g improve spares availability and quality, improve communication with customers, etc.)

    I worked at Dassault Falcon Jet full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Dassault makes a fantastic aircraft with a straight and true airframe. Great pay for a single person with no family. Fantastic, low cost benefits even for full family coverage. Pension plan is paid for by company and is great to see as pensions are rare these days. Co-workers outside of management are fantastic and fun to work with day to day. Company picnic is great amd lots of fun. Exercise facility on site.

    Cons

    Headquartered in Teterboro NJ. High cost of living makes it near impossible to move to the area for a career. Property taxes are sky high....plan on $1,000 month minimum in taxes. Management is out of touch with lower employees and there is plenty of sabre rattling and intimidation on a daily basis. Many silos exist and software is extremely old and outdated with no solid training on how to use it. Sink or swim mentality. No career advancement opportunities and no recognition/mentoring of top employees--no succession planning for future leaders. Management is extremely stressed out day to day and will bark and bite at subordinates daily. Management does not know how to lead and do not trust anybody but themselves. Paranoia abounds.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and stop micro-managing!! This is killing the culture. Succession planning is needed, but is non-existent.

    Pros

    Pay and benefits are is. That is all.

    Cons

    The technicians on the floor are treated like dirt by management when in turn, they are the people completing the aircraft projects.
