    I worked at Dassault Falcon Jet full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Benefits (health insurance), Job stability, career evolution End to end process in the Little Rock factory, a lot of work to do. There is pride in the accomplished work and the delivered product.

    Cons

    A lot of patience is required: raise or recognition take too long compared to other companies, both HR and technical processes are unbelievably slow, various shops/departments have a hard time working together and their focus is limited on various specific issues. There are too many managers who protect only their personal interests. Too many people have lost their drive to work. This can be solved with increased training,...

    Advice to Management

    Increase leadership: the company needs to work as one team. Find a new dynamic, a new drive. Create effective means to identify people who need support and products that need improvement. Encourage proactivity rather than reactivity.

    Pros

    Great Benefits Company Gym Training Great office environment

    Cons

    Antiquated business model Upper Management heavily plays favorites Upper Management points the finger rather than solves problems

    Advice to Management

    It really is a great place to work, so why the bad review? I'll tell you what was told to me by a senior employee. "This place tends to ruin good people," and that's exactly what it did. Upper management is more concerned with pointing the finger rather than solving actual problems. The completion center bullies the customer into completing the aircraft based off of how easy it is for them rather than build the aircraft...

    Pros

    They have good benefits. They provide training FOC. The company is headed in a positive direction.

    Cons

    DFJ does not pay competitive wages in Supply Chain. I have a college degree and multiple certifications, but the do not consider these factors when determining salaries or raises.

    Advice to Management

    DFJ is progressing with lean initiatives which is a plus, but they also need to implement lean within Supply Chain. ERP software and an online supplier portal needs to implemented ASAP. SCM should push for 60-90 day payment terms with suppliers. DFJ should negotiate to not be responsible for materials until they reach our dock. DFJ should be more proactive. They need to implement more risk management & DFJ suppliers...

    I worked at Dassault Falcon Jet full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great benefits and some really great people work there.

    Cons

    The good ole' boy system is very much applicable here. If you're French, you pretty much have it made there (it is a French company). Salary is below the national average for Engineers. Gulfstream and Bell Helicopter, for example, pay considerably more for the same position with the same amount of experience. People will tell you that it's due to the location of these other companies, but I can tell you the pay offers...
