    I worked at BE Aerospace full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    B/E has great people to work with, from so many different nationalities.

    Cons

    Too much work piled on too few people, plus a hurry-up-and-do-it mentality while still expecting quality.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the people actually doing the work. They have insight you don't, and their perspective adds value.

    great employees - very friendly

    too many hours; no processes -- management makes decisions without thinking them through, "just get 'er done" doesn't work with out a plan/process

    Management could use an overhaul

    When things are not on time look at the managers and see why they're not informing their people in time. Hint: possibly they don't know what they're doing. Oh and quit with the overseas junk!
