Pros

Great start-up company, well received in the community.

Cons

Most management is from out of state, so if you are a native of NM, you'll likely not be accepted into their cliques.

Advice to Management

Get rid of that chip on your shoulder. The more communication and respect you have for your staff, the more quality work will be produced for you.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Eclipse Aviation full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Work life balance is very positive. Lots of very good hard working people here.

    Cons

    Competition in the industry is very difficult right now. The company is competing against products that are much better funded and supported. The lack of funding and poor product support is hurting sales.

    Advice to Management

    Without a solution to the funding and product support problems sales will never improve. Must fix that first to restore confidence in the company.


  2. "Good People, Bad Future"

    I worked at Eclipse Aviation full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great co-workers from the Director level down to the techs.

    The aircraft design is well executed.

    If the Air Force selects the "Project Canada" as it's T-1 replacement, the company will be set.

    Cons

    The aircraft design is well executed, but unfortunately is not the right aircraft design as the market has shown.

    I predict the entrance of the Cirrus Vision (which looks a lot like the Eclipse 400) will take the customer base and kill the company.

    Advice to Management

    Have the Klapmeier brothers kiss and make up because "One Aviation" isn't going to keep you out of another bankruptcy.
