    I worked at HEICO full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great people and EXCELLENT bonus and company time offered after year end filings. You learn a lot and get valuable on the job training

    Cons

    It's a large company run like a mom and pop; lots of hours expected from employees 50-60 hour weeks are common.

    Advice to Management

    Quality employees are not interchangeable like airplane parts. You put a lot of effort into hiring quality employees, but not enough into keeping them. Bonus albeit great is not enough on its own to hold on to good people

    I worked at HEICO full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are some great individuals present at the Doral facility across the different departments. Work environment can be carefree and flexible. Bonuses arrive quarterly.

    Cons

    Morale is low. Management is inept and unethical in managing employees and overseeing their safety and of their customers (airlines). Nepotism is rampant and therefore expect little to no raises to the already below industry wages and no career advancement. Management is accustomed to turnover in their employees and so do not care about retaining them, no matter the skill or qualifications. Worse though, is that management makes it no secret that their only concern is meeting the monthly quotas, even if corners are to be cut.

    Advice to Management

    The aerospace industry is booming at the moment and so new talent and contracts aren't difficult to come by. This is however a cyclical environment and so it would be wise to cultivate an environment where employees are satisfied at their job and thus work at their best before they leave to a competitor. It would also be to the company's benefit to focus on preventing mistakes rather than frequently rushing to fix them, leading to even greater issues.

    I worked at HEICO full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    A good working environment. Diverse co-workers

    Cons

    Salaries are at least 30% lower than the rest of the industry. Constantly laying off workers for any reason even if they think the salary is higher than normal.

    Advice to Management

    Team members are most important part of the company. You already lost too many good ones.
