    Growth, Activity and solid working experience! Check out B/E Aerospace...

    Pros

    * B/E Aerospace is a company with many opportunities for those willing to work towards that end. * B/E is a place where you are allowed to work and share ideas with your co-workers/team. * B/E is a company that you can feel valued when you put in the effort to make a difference. * There are great people working there and you can be part of a solution. * Very solid work/life balance * Many people put in the time to make a solution happen. * B/E is not a place for employees whom just go through the motions - you are allowed the opportunity to make a difference. I enjoy working with many different divisions in my role and I continue to support them employment searches nationally.

    Cons

    B/E could do better with it's performance/salary review policy. Currently, it is annual and employee contributions occasionally may get overlooked unless the employee provides records that document highlights of the employee's contributions. Consider biannual reviews...

    High Pressure, demanding, expect 60+ hour work weeks

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Lots of opportunity to learn how to work in a highly stressful environment Pay was above average but expect to work long hours and weekends Product is complex thus engineers are kept busy to introduce design solutions for these innovative products

    Cons

    No work life balance Crisis management is in full swing due to overload in engineering, supply chain and operations Lack of trust leads to micro-management and stifles decision making. Too much emphasis is placed on managing the message by senior leadership team. More focus needs to be on solving the issues.
