I have been working at Beechcraft

Pros

Upper Management is great (but too many chiefs and not enough indians)
Flowdown of information gets lost in middle mgmnt.

Cons

No longer offering raises for living expense increases.
Benefits continue to get cut and cost continue to go up.
Pay scale

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Work on a program to continue to develope nad increase employee morale. Morale is low due to layoffs and everyone doing 2-3 jobs now to cover. Employees tend to feel unappreciated.

    No leadership in the finance organization; everything is a fire drill and communication is nil.

    Pros

    good salary and benefits, many good employees although the number is dwindling

    Cons

    financially unstable, too many VP's with own agenda, weak communication, Good Ole Boys(Girls) Club

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communicate to your employees, don't let them hear they are laid off through the rumor mill. Remove a few layers of management. A VP reporting to a VP who reports to a VP(CFO) is not efficient.

    Do not work here. Management has no respect for their talented people.

    Pros

    The engineers are good, competent people.

    Cons

    The best thing that management could do for this company is burn it down and start over. They hire people from Cessna at top wages ( but won't properly compensate the good people they have) but then these new people are shunned for coming up with bright new ideas! The company does not understand certification - it's just a game to them. They don't deserve any of the incentive money provided by taxpayers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't hire any more black belts. They are self serving.
