I worked at BE Aerospace full-time

Pros

Some really great people are employed. You will form a working relationships with some of the smartest people in the industry.

Cons

There is little direction from management. The direction that is given can almost be equated to that of a Dilbert comic strip. The decisions can change, take forever, and usually don't make practical sense if they knew what your job really consisted of. If you qualify for overtime, you will work 40 hours and get to go home happy. If you do not qualify for overtime, you will work close to 60 hours or more a week carrying the work load of 2 to 4 people depending on the projects at that time.

Advice to Management

Make sure all levels of management are performing as expected. The current metric system does not seem to be accurately reporting the problems with mid to low tier management. Be conscious of work place stigmas and perceptions of management. Possibly perform skip level meetings or have managers from other departments interview employees if that helps them be more truthful. Analyze and implement a metric system that accurately displays the amount of work being performed by the employees and act upon those metrics. Hire more, hire talent, and pay respectively.

    I worked at BE Aerospace as an intern

    Pros

    Was given responsibility and real work to do as an intern. Great first time aerospace industry experience.

    Cons

    Intern program was not structured as far as guidance/support. Feels like you are off just doing your own thing.


  2. "Politically volatile without a solid supply chain direction."

    I have been working at BE Aerospace full-time

    Pros

    Production people and non-managers were hard working, caring, hopeful and had pride.

    Cons

    Upper management was metric driven without purpose. Metrics for their own sake and not to provide a better outcome.

    Advice to Management

    Do not seek the immediate gratification of a metric score at the expense of employee morale. And look at the company with a long-term perspective rather that "I look good now" focus!
