I worked at Beechcraft full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Fellow workers were real nice and pleasent to work with. Processess and procedures better than most in the industry. Great since of pride within the company.

Cons

The union has made labor force within Beechcraft over priced and lazy, and failed to be a factor in preventing work from going out of the country. Engineering and technical support departments are understaffed and overworked. Sourcing core engineering to india was not what Beechcraft expected. Actually turned out to be cheaper and faster turn around in house.

Advice to Management

Concentrate on improving the development and manufacturing of the product lines. Middle management is too fat, lower management is too thin and over worked, try and reach a balance.

    Pros

    not many pros working here.

    Cons

    Underpaid in our area of the country, Management wouldn't listen to the employees ideas. The facility mangers they hired were not qualified for the job, always under bid the time required to do the jobs, then got upset at the employees when we couldn't meet their schedule.

    I worked at Beechcraft full-time

    Pros

    All employees believe in the product and most go out of their way to respect each other and drive the company to success.

    Cons

    Mid/senior and senior management are disconnected from the workforce and completely oblivious to the customer needs!

    Advice to Management

    Policies have been put into place and revised to become very strict as a result of the management continuing to stretch the acceptable and yet they continue to find ways to remain unethical in financial matters. Follow and police the policies or take out the garbage!
