    Good place if you want quick advancement. Bad management.

    I worked at Learjet

    Pros

    Small company gives the ability to wear many hats, and meet a lot of people within the organization.

    Cons

    Poorly run company. A lot of fire fighting. If you are smart, then you probably be the smartest in the company and will be able to teach yourself alot. There are alot of knowledge & skill gaps within the company, though, so not a lot of opportunity to learn from capable leaders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get up to speed with modern management practices. Hire good people in management, even if it mean paying more.

    I have been working at Learjet full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Pay is competitive, and there is opportunity for professional advancement if you're willing to work hard for it.

    Cons

    On the L85 program, work/life balance is not a priority. Most employees have at least two daily meetings that are mandatory, and it's not unusual to have the first before 8am and the second after 4pm. The program is in trouble, and everyone is very stressed by the fear of being blamed for failures that are no ones and everyone's fault.
