Decent salary, great bonus (if you get it), but little to no growth.

Pros

It's in a nice part of the country. The executives seem like nice people (you're likely too insignificant to really anger them ever). Most of the office area is pretty nice. Work Hard / Play Hard mentality. Salary can be competitive if you negotiate well. Bonus is great. It can be up to 10% of your salary even at lower levels. There are a lot of different products to work on. Some management is good, others are terrible. If you can get yourself a good salary, you can live in a nice area, but don't expect anything long term, because you may not ever see a raise (even after 3-4 years of good work).

Cons

With that, raises have no structure. Some areas get them, others never seem to get them. It all depends on who the boss is.

Two types of bad management. The bullies and the innept. There are a few that are totally clueless. Also, the reality is that the true "managers" aren't managers by title, they're the Business Unit Leaders, Directors, or VP's. The title of Manager is pretty much useless. They have to fill out some paperwork, but they usually have no power (i.e. can't give raises, can't authorize almost anything). All they can do is OK your vacation it seems. They'll fire people if you basically don't just do whatever they want when they want it. There are only a few exceptions.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

The executives need to flow down what they want better. It seems like it all dies in middle management. A lot of bitter employees aren't being taken care of. This affects the bottom line, which is the only thing most seem to care about. Also, the nepotism needs to be carefully reviewed. In some cases, it's fine, due to people being in different units, but in others, it's blatently unethical. I guess no one cares so long as they can hire new employees and keep making money.

    Pros

    Pay is higher than most places, bonuses.

    Cons

    Very unprofessional work environment. Favoritism and nepotism between management and employees. Special treatment if you are in the right clique. Little to no communication between managment and employees. Incompetent supervisors and managers. Much gossip and backstabbing. No value placed on good work ethics. Policies and procedures mean nothing there - not enforced - waste of paper that its written on. Management does not want any conflict or problems brought to their attention due to the fact that it brings to light their incompetencies as leaders. This could be a very good place to work and has the potential to be more profitable if current management and supervisors were replaced with ones who had a backbone or skills to address and correct the working environment that exists. Corporate needs to be aware of the theft that occurs daily in terms of the money being wasted by keeping office employees who do little to no work, spend most of their days taking care of personal business whether it be online shopping or hours on personal calls, spending time socializing or excessive time off. Morale amongst employees is extremely low due to the "special" treatment bestowed upon those "special" few. A lot of animosity and distrust. If you are someone with a strong work ethic you would be very discouraged and stressed on a daily basis. On the other hand, if you prefer a circus like atmosphere that does not require you to do much work and are willing to suck up to the right supervisor or manager, then this is the place for you. Be prepared to put up and shut up or you will be out the door.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Corporate needs to take notice of the mismanagment at Future. Unannounced visits would be good. Replacement of current management/supervisors and slackers could make Future Aviation a much better place to work.

    Pros

    The people that work at Heico are absolutely great people. It's the best place I've ever worked in terms of the people that I worked with. Also, bonus is pretty good compared to other companies

    Cons

    Heico is a publically traded company that is dominated by a few people. They have the autonomy to practically do what they want.

    HR has absolutely no power in the company so things that shouldn't be happening often does.

    Upper management is a click and if you are not apart of it then do not expect any advancement no matter how well you have performed. Bonus is often dependent on how much your manager likes you.

    Most of upper management have been there for 15 or 20 years. All they know is the Heico way and do not listen to any new ideas that do not conform to the traditional way they do business.

    Systems are antiquated. Everything is VERY manual.

    Little to no African American representation. Only one african American Manager in the entire organization who was actually got their role because they were already in it when Heico acquired them. No African Americans in upper management at all!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I personally think they entire upper management team needs to be broken up
