I have been working at Learjet

Pros

Very cool A/C and an exciting lean transformation in process. I am very proud of what has been going on in the Learjet Factory.

Cons

Mother ship makes all decisions from Montreal, and they are very much in silos when it comes to sharing information between sites.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They need to listen to the specialists that they have hired, focus on what their future A/C need to be competitive in the market place. If they intend to ever meet a schedule they cannot be afraid to show that they need help, or are behind so that a mitigation plan can be enacted. Choose the right materials for the proposed design and ensure that Stress, Design, and Operations all know how to properly analyse that material. Otherwise it gets designed the way they know and are comfortable with and you end up paying 3 times the price for a material, for a design that does not lend itself to the manufacturing process.

    Pros

    Benefits package is very good

    Cons

    The people are rude. There is a lot of discrimination in the workplace

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When someone is being discriminated against, you need to take care of the problem, not just give a slap on the wrist to the person who is in the wrong
