    Pros

    Good place for new engineers to get varied experience. Most of the work force are good people and fun to be around. Pay is pretty good for the area.

    Cons

    From top down there is no motivation to retain employees. Many asinine rules that don't exist in other areas of the industry. The atmosphere is not one of fulfilled employees. Those in salaried positions always seem to be brushing up their resumes for the next opportunity. Relationship from management is not one of open communication and instruction. Engineers are just temporary cogs to be used until they are worn out.

    Advice to Management

    Instruct HR to cultivate a positive atmosphere and make this a place employees want to stay. Make sure managers are more than technically competent, meaning they should also be capable of communicating with employees under them well and are able to positively motivate them and educate them while they are there. Possibly create incentives for good performance. Overall just make employees feel valued.

    I worked at BE Aerospace (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Plenty of knowledgeable people including the operators of the in's and outs of the products they make.

    Cons

    People willing to stab each other in the back and plenty of finger pointing when things go south. There isn't much of a future there unless you know someone and even then they're always ready to empty out a department at a moments notice.

    Advice to Management

    Hire people that know how to apply their skills to the occupation and stop holding onto old Supervisors and managers that don't bring anything constructive to the company.

    Pros

    Aerospace Industry, such a fascinating environment. Watching part being manufactured from start to finish. Being a part of something grand.

    Cons

    Management! It's a shame many people have been lost due to politics played. Great employees are discouraged as a result of the poor leadership. Unless you have a "friend" in the leadership team, no chance for advancement.

    Advice to Management

    I wish they had an undercover boss so the reality of how employees are treated can be corrected. Need leadership change or major training.

    Pros

    The supervisor Omar seemed a very nice person.

    Cons

    There are a lot of people working in this company located in Corona. Some of the people I worked with were not that friendly. Honestly, I did not feel a good vibe about working in this company. Also, the pay rate is very low. This is an aerospace company but they do not pay that much.

    Advice to Management

    Check on your employees.

    Great industry with great long term prospects. This could be a company you could join and possibly stay at for many years.

    Cons

    They were recently acquired by Rockwell Collins, which could result in some changes.

    Advice to Management

    Complete any changes related to the Rockwell acquisition, in order to move forward.

    Pros

    Steady job, lotsa overtime if you want to make extramoney.

    Cons

    HR shamelessly lies to everybody at the interview about hiring after 90 days and get the benefits, - in reality it takes up to 2! years. That is why this place has a terrible turnover. People come and go.
