    I have been working at HEICO full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Large Company – well funded & highly profitable
    Great Benefits – 401-k, bonus, health, etc.
    Positive Culture – many long-time team members and many who have left, have returned
    Growth Opportunities - for those who work hard and excel

    Cons

    Some jobs are demanding and you may have to put in the extra hours to get the job done. However, the variety of the work makes the days go by quick.

    Advice to Management

    I don't know how to say it better than: Great companies don't hire skilled people and motivate them, they hire already motivated people and inspire them. Management should continue to attribute part of the success to their Team Members; who truly appreciate the recognition.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, matching 401K, healthcare is affordable, and hours are flexible to adjust to schedules.

    Cons

    At will contract, 90 day probation period, leadership isn't clear, business development outlook of the company isn't well defined and they need to invest in new upcoming as well rather than only the past ones.

    Advice to Management

    Don't use up a employees 90 day probation period pressuring a lot of work and the following day use at will contract to "cut ties" once they complete all of your workload your behind on, no heads up given.

    Be willing to accept new ideas even from the newest person. Change is always needed within a business to conform with modernization.

    Pros

    High salary, great people

    Cons

    Lack of leadership has resulted in a complete breakdown in all aspects of business. Most importantly safety is not taken seriously. No action plan is in place, while management maintains they are doing s great job. Vertical integration is not only non-existent but dysfunctional. Divisions actually sabotage one another to eliminate their opportunity to bid on projects. No clear direction. Divisional leaders are micromanaged, but not to create ethical policy. Only to implement cost cutting.

    Advice to Management

    Get a president that listens to VP advice and forces implementation of substantial changes need in safety and integration.

    Pros

    Radiant Power Corp, whom I've already reviewed, is an amazing company to work for! That is in part because HEICO is a great parent-company. They have high standards, full benefits, and room for advancement.

    Cons

    HEICO is my employer's parent-company, through which hiring is done, so when I positively review my company ... people looking to interview through HEICO won't realize how well-reviewed my company is!

    Advice to Management

    I think you're doing great, please keep it up.

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

    Pros

    Great people and EXCELLENT bonus and company time offered after year end filings. You learn a lot and get valuable on the job training

    Cons

    It's a large company run like a mom and pop; lots of hours expected from employees 50-60 hour weeks are common.

    Advice to Management

    Quality employees are not interchangeable like airplane parts. You put a lot of effort into hiring quality employees, but not enough into keeping them. Bonus albeit great is not enough on its own to hold on to good people

    I have been working at HEICO full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Speaking for my group and the people I work with, the camaraderie is great and it's really easy to work with my coworkers. They are not watchful over every minute and very lenient as long as the work gets done. It's an open-door policy to speak and suggest new ways to do things and to push the envelope as far as work processes are concerned. Bonus at the end of the year is always pretty substantial

    Cons

    It is a never ending struggle to get paid what your market worth is and even if in the small chance raises are given, it's never close to what you can get from other companies. There is a real sense that they believe you can be easily replaced. While you are allowed to think outside the box, chances are your ideas might never be implemented because a lot of the folks in upper management might push innovation but they seldom back it up. There are also far too many structural changes that happen from year to year. Finally upward mobility is reserved for a select few.

    Advice to Management

    For a successful company, you have no idea how unhappy a lot of the people you boast about being an integral part of the company's success, truly are. But since you don't seem to notice the large turnover as the company consistently averages 20% growth in revenue, all I can say is you will eventually get bitten by your lack of caring.
