    I worked at driessen aerospace usa full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    close to the beach, really thats about it

    Cons

    low pay
    work overload
    toxic culture where manager is turning one person on the team against the other
    incapable managers (managers who were promoted to these positions due to years with company not managerial skills)
    next to HB dump station

    Advice to Management

    stop hiring a bunch of recent grads and cheap indian labor.
    instead hire experienced professional engineers from US who know how to communicate so your drawing iterations are lower and the projects dont fall behind!!!!

    Pros

    Learned a lot. Plenty of work and varied work to grow professionally. There was rarely a dull moment. Decent benefits package.

    Cons

    Long hours, with no compensation and everyone is expected to put life on hold. Company is more concerned about product and deadlines rather than well-being of employees. A number of employees have quit, been let go or fired, even some who have been with the company for many years. The work itself seems meaningless.

    Advice to Management

    Start respecting and treating employees as your most valuable asset. Stop being arrogant and thinking that just because Driessen has been around for 70 years that it will be around forever. Case in point: Look at the Persian Empire. Where is it now? Nothing lasts forever. A plane sitting on the ground may cost $50,000 but keep that in perspective of annual revenue. It is like someone fretting over losing a penny. People are what make the company, not the product.
