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

    Pros

    Big break rooms, super clean/safe work environment

    Cons

    Management has no respect for employees, job security is absolutely AWFUL and training of new employees is non-existent

    Advice to Management

    Learn how to treat your employees. You have good workers come in and fire them for forgetting to tie their shoe in the morning. Eventually everyone will get fired

    Respect your hard workers, not the ones that have been there for 20+ years. There's a reason that the workforce keeps trying to become organized/represented (Union).

    Great company with great benefits and a bright future. Has good opportunities for advancement and training. Safety is a high priority. The company is growing.
