good place with great co workers but the pay is terrible from what is expected on a day to day basis
Seat Assembler (Current Employee) –  Winston-Salem, NCMarch 17, 2015
management does not seem to care much about the lower employees and it has been said by someone in management that no one on the floor deserves more than 9 dollars an hour but they couldn't do the job if they tried
Cons
pay

Intern QA/QC Engineer (Former Employee) –  Tanauan, 04ANovember 6, 2014
Inspection is the name of the game. Quality standards must be followed. I learned many technical procedures and statistical works and Calibration techniques. The management is great. There are many benefits and it includes medical, transportation, insurance, food. My co-workers are fun to be around. They are less stressing compared to what the job can stress you. I really enjoy most of the time in my stay with the company.
Pros
free lunch, free transportation, medical, insurance

Toxic and Unhealthy Working Enviornment
Senior Contract Representative (Former Employee) –  Miami, FLNovember 4, 2014
The culture of the organization is trying to change. In order for this to be successful there needs to be a complete overhaul in leadership/management.

There's no work life balance, you're working crazy ridiculous hours.
Lack of appreciation of sacrifices...
Tons of favoritism, its all about who you know rather than what you know for advancement opportunities...

Great hard working employees get overlooked for promotions/advancement opportunities and etc..

Would not recommend working there, it's an extremely toxic and unhealthy environment. It totally drains you....
Pros
benefits package is good
Cons
culture

Distribution Specialist (Former Employee) –  Chandler, AZDecember 9, 2014
typical day at b/e aerospace is coming in to the job and turning our thinking hat on to extreme and getting to work with a fast pace and a attitude to getting as many orders out the door as you can. The co-workers are awesome and great to work with, management is ok when it comes helping if u have a problem or question
Pros
early shifts
Cons
short breaks

Terrible Culture of Micro-Management and Distrust
Engineering Manager (Current Employee) –  Tucson, AZSeptember 4, 2014
Horrible culture of management not entrusting its staff to perform their job. Top-down management style where VP's get involved in daily duties not typically seen at other companies. Practice is to bandaid issues and never address them fully. If you are passive aggressive, or like working with those who are, then THIS is the place for you! Still feeling good about yourself? B/E can take care of that, too!

Irrespective of your experience or educational background, you will be put down publicly (especially via email with lots of copied managers) and lead a sullen, hollow existence.
Pros
free food and paychecks
Cons
demoralizing micro-management that will suck your self-esteem

STAY AWAY if you're a salaried professional
Salaried Professional (Current Employee) –  Tucson, AZJuly 3, 2014
Be prepared for constant chaos and never seeing the light of day on account of so much MANDATORY OVERTIME.

Computer systems are archaic, the company constantly bites off more than it can chew and you will re-engineer something over and over again right up to the time it's going out the door.

You will spend a lot of your time in meetings and then spend your personal time doing the work you spoke about in meetings.

It's may be a good company for someone who's learning to get exposed to all aspects of manufacturing.

No training be prepared to hit the ground running.
Pros
pay and benefits are decent, if you can keep up you'll never be out of work
Cons
no personal life, management is out of touch

Overall work environment
Engineer (Former Employee) –  Bohemia, NYJune 22, 2014
B/E Aerospace, since the past four years was being led by a new Director of Operations,who was also in charge of engineering as well as Manufacturing. There were many instances where due to his lack of a subject matter, his response to any problem was basically to get a resolution ASAP, no matter if the solution was impractical or if the "solution" created bigger problems.If anyone got in his way, he/she were fired within months. Glad I left this company. Be prepared to work 65+ hours weekly, and then get a bagel as compensation. Be advised- ethics is out the window when you work here! Good luck working this way B/E.

Director of Operations is very manipulative and has made many people leave this company.

very secure place to work at with extraordinary people.
Seat Assembler (Former Employee) –  Winston-Salem, NCMay 4, 2014
at b/e i had to learn a few new things that i didn't know, for example; i had to learn how to read blue prints well, and to use new tools i haven't used before. a regular day would consist of assembling seats in a line with people rite next to you. trying to pass the time the workers would make the best of it by having conversations. the workers there are great almost all of them friendly and fun to talk to. the hardest part of the job was standing up all day since it was a line job you couldn't sit down. my most enjoyable part if this job was the people i got to meet.
Pros
great benefits
Cons
few management problems

BOYS CLUB - NO ADVANCEMENT FOR WOMEN
Hard worker (Current Employee) –  Bohemia, NYJuly 15, 2014
Micro Managed. Very low raises. They rather new hires with few or none experience rather than hard working employees that are loyal and skilled for supervision to this company. No motivation, no incentive. Pizza is the reward. I wish their CEO could stop by with no noticed to see how how this place is being run.
Pros
a lot of work
Cons
one person is supposed to make the job of five people.

Enjoyed learning the update for Unigraphics NX7.5
Design Engineer (Former Employee) –  Tucson, AZApril 17, 2012
I learned they are so busy there is little time for one on one training or time for questions about their procedures and I went by my own handwritten notes which was difficult. There were no outlines for naming or structural procedures for the bill of materials or for models and drawings and how they use the load options. What I learned is to ask for that material and find out expectations up front to learn faster what a company needs.
Pros
perdiem
Cons
being away from home during the week.

Horrible place to work.
Shop (Current Employee) –  Savannah, GAFebruary 11, 2013
Go around the corner to Gulfstream Aerospace or LMI next door. This company will work you like a dog without proper compensation and do not treat their employees with respect. Nor will they give temp workers a permanant job. They put people in charge that are not experience and think that you are in the military. The new director of operations is incapable, riding on the backs of other experience employees, and HR will not support you considering they both came from Honeywell. There will be NO training!
Pros
you have a job
Cons
refuses to make temp worker permanant while working you with low pay.

Administrative (Former Employee) –  BohemiaMarch 16, 2015
Management expects way too much over job description.
Your a dedicated worker, have a great review and then get laid off.
Not a company to grow with.
Company would rather hire temps.
Pros

micro management

High pay but conflict within management
Design Engineer (Former Employee) –  Westminster, CAApril 5, 2012
I have been interview for a Sr. Mechanical Engineer by manufacturing manager, his manager, his manager, and the top manager - The General Manager. It seems to be an existing conflict within the organization between the original employees of the high tech gearbox company and the new management that came with BA Aerospace. The new BE managers are not technical and not educated. The General Manager from BE has little if any expertise in mechanical systems. BE used to do interior designs on aeroplanes like installing platinume showers and toilets. Now BE wants to enter a high tech business by purchasing a high tech company. They are looking for new engineers because the existing engineers leave. When managers are not engineers, good engineers normally do not stay.
Pros
good pay
Cons
top manager is like used limo salesman
