    Pros

    Benefits and pay cannot be beaten in central Arkansas. Many good people to work with.

    Cons

    From upper management down to the level of team leader the level of incompetence is staggering. Total lack of interdepartmental coordination.

    Advice to Management

    Look at the number of direct reports the senior VP general manager has versus a lean company. Senior VP has more direct reports than most managers in the company. from that level down there are not only managers with fewer direct reports there are actually managers with no direct reports and some with only two or three.

    Pros

    Great place to work with excellent benefits.

    Cons

    Good opportunity for advancement unless a French employee is in the running for the position.

    Advice to Management

    Most management decisions are even keeled, fair and conservative. However, some executive level decisions are made in a top down manner and seem not to care about repercussions. The decision to launch 2 new aircraft (F8X and 5X) that directly competes against the current line up has been disastrous in my opinion. The delay and loss of sales on the new 5X has cut deeply into the reputation of this once top notch company.

    I worked at Dassault Falcon Jet full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work with high end business jets and potentially meet some very famous people. Work in a world class facility with many different nationalities, the Little Rock facility had over 19 primary languages spoke just at its location. Very diverse and organized facility.

    Cons

    Language barriers can be a problem. Management tends to put the work load on one or two individuals instead of holding team members accountable for not completing work. High stress environment. Senior leadership changes every couple of years. They will also go around managers and break chain of command.

    Advice to Management

    Hold your first line managers and team leads accountable for their projects.

    Pros

    Great Health Benefits, paid school tuition as long as you hold a 75% or higher, Most people or good!

    Cons

    Management make bad decisions, once they have a negative view of someone, that's it, no since trying to be a team player, they have their picks, or favorites.

    Advice to Management

    Don't play favorites, give credit where it is due, to the ones that work the hardiest.

    Pros

    The Pay And Benefits Are The Main Reasons Why People Are here. The pay is good for this area and the benefits are great.

    Cons

    The leadership leaves a lot to be desired. The buddy buddy system has ruined what once was a great company. They have the wrong people in charge. They need to change the way things are done and that starts with the people they have in charge. 70% of the upper management needs to be restructured. These are major issues with the production side of things.

    Advice to Management

    You guys should should actually talk to the people who have their boots to the ground instead of just talking to their leads or supervisors. Perhaps form a committee and get to the root of the issues. I guarantee that things would run a lot smoother and the actual goal of delivering more quality aircraft on time would be the result.

    Pros

    The benefits are great, the pay is good especially for the area. It's great to work with good people that want to produce a quality product.

    Cons

    Lots of finger pointing between different levels of management when issues come up. Certain departments are quick to blame other departments for things being late but they fail to disclose that the parts were actually on time but had to be returned for repair due to damage. Internal jobs posted with excessive skill requirements only to award the job to someone with less qualification after no one applies or meets the qualifications. Many members of the management team are micro managers and use intimidation or verbally talk down to employees. HR is in bed with the managers and directors of these areas and will not back the employee. Poor scheduling leads to excessive amounts of overtime but whenever people leave they are not replaced which only leaves more work for everyone else. In certain departments there are no opportunities to advance unless you move out of the department. Then if the economy tanks and there is a layoff, you get the axe because most; not all, departments use seniority within the department instead of years of service to determine who gets laid off. Employees are held to an extremely high level of quality but items purchased from off site vendors are not held to the same quality standards which forces delays or the internal employees to repair the vendor parts.

    Advice to Management

    Treat all employees fairly. Stop permitting employees to be belittled by upper management. Rotate managers and or directors throughout various departments like they do in France. Look at years of service with the company instead of within the department in the event of a layoff. This keeps people from wanting to advance or learn new things.
