    I worked at Dassault Falcon Jet full-time (More than 10 years)

    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.

  8. "Aerospace is one of the most challenging and exciting career fields."

    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.
