    Former Employee - Lab Technician in Dublin, CA

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

    Pros

    - Rarely ever stressful / easy work
    - Good foot in the door type of job
    - Starting pay is on the higher side of the spectrum for a typical starter level lab tech job.
    - Benefits are decent/good

    Cons

    - No room for growth/no ladder to climb
    - Not a long term type of job
    - The type of work is redundant all year long. Easy/non-stressful but boring

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

    Pros

    Great products (composite materials), good history of growth.

    Cons

    Very little promotion from within the company. They generally fill all upper level salaried positions by hiring from the outside.

    Advice to Management

    If you have to hire from the outside, you are doing a poor job grooming/training your best assets for future success.

    I worked at Hexcel full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There is anything good to say about this company. The above average pay you receive is really not worth the trouble, the stress you will add to your life. Find something else to do even it pays less. You will be much happier in the end.

    Cons

    Poor morale and lots of gossips. Employees are treated just like a number by HR and management.
     Poor management and favoritism are well and alive at this company. Employees are treated too unfairly for petty things. There is no common sense. If anyone has a vendetta against you, you may as well look for another job. There is no open door. Whatever someone says against you is what matters. There is no sense of investigating and finding out the truth. In fact, going to HR as last resort can be used against you.
    If you have an issues, there is really to talk to.

    Advice to Management

    Hire some real and experienced managers who know how treat his people and someone who has the integrity to do what's right, not some inexperienced and insecured manager . People are what make this company successful, not the other way around. Until that happens, turnover will continue.

    I have been working at Hexcel full-time

    Pros

    Great products and technology, cool markets. Will give you a lot of work quickly, great place to start career

    Cons

    Management is poor at communicating clear goals for your growth as an employee. Compensation is mediocre with a larger amount heavily concentrated at the top - like many firms. They are quick to hire from the outside but not promote from within.

    Advice to Management

    Improve your employee communications in one to one reviews - set clear goals. Invest in your people.

    Pros

    If you want to work for a company where no one will hold you accountable this is the place for you.

    Cons

    Senior management is more interested in saving money by spreading unqualified salary personal thin instead of hiring the appropriate persons for the work needed.

    Advice to Management

    Think about developing you current talent, hire the right people for the positions. Stop the using the good old boy mentality. Stop signing deals with our customers that sends internal work overseas. Stop the consistent flavor of the month management mentality.
