Site Leadership is Great, but Corporate is a band of Theives
Legal Counsel (Current Employee) – West Palm Beach, FL – 30 August 2017
Take a few minutes and look over the company's annual statement. Notice the deals the senior leaders cut for themselves in golden parachutes, bonuses and stock options while they withhold increases to the employees and make poor business decisions over and over again. I will give them credit for being good at politics because they use their in-house legal counsel to cover up their SOX violations and pass the blame on other management teams to cover up their egotistical, arrogant bad decisions. Not sure what the board of directors are doing, but they are not looking out for the investors. If they were, the senior leadership would be gone tomorrow.
Stores,transportation (Current Employee) – Winston-Salem, NC – 11 August 2017
Current employee, I work in materials and overwhelmed with boxes containing metal parts to put in locations that are FULL. Some people have 2 hours day to socialize. I'm not part of a group that talks most of day . I get 30 minute lunch, two 15 minute breaks
Mechanic (Former Employee) – Everett, WA – 7 August 2017
If you are a man, all behavior is acceptable. You are held to different standards as a woman, and treated with disrespect. Haven't worked there in years, but still hear the turn around rate for woman mechanics is high, and BE's discriminatory behavior is still going strong.
Advanced Wire Harness Assembler (Former Employee) – Great Falls, MT – 29 July 2017
My everyday experience was pretty fast paced. The facility I worked in had a very laid back culture however, with the production staff being like a huge family. My supervisor was super professional and I learned a great deal of what it means to lead and how to run a team from him. We frequently worked large amounts of overtime and that was the most common complaint among my colleagues. If you don't mind working over 50 hour work weeks on occasion then it's a really great job and I highly recommend it.
Full time, opportunity to advance, decent benefits
Program Administrator/Project Coordinator (Former Employee) – Winston-Salem, NC – 24 July 2017
A typical day was first reviewing emails and internal programs for emergencies, interactions with Program Managers, Production Facility, monitor for Export Compliance, attend meetings. Most enjoyable part of job was working with my team mate and the Program Managers. It was a self directed/motivating job that was not micro managed. Management was always available and willing to listen to new ideas/procedures. During my 14 years at BE I learned how a manufacturing company operates and all that goes into the production of a seat, from the production floor to engineering, administrative, new computer programs/applications, procedure writing, government involvement and interacting with all levels of management. Learned about AS9100 and Six Sigma.
Assembler/Production (Former Employee) – Great Falls, MT – 16 July 2017
"I'm not payed enough to work hard" was a thing I heard a lot working there... I worked my butt off and was making $2 more then the other builders so it shows they notice if you should be payed more. When I started you got some training on how to use the tools and how to read the drawing then all training was pushed onto the builders who were still expected to get the harnesses completed at the same speed.
no repercussions for being lazy... for some people this is a pro
Corporate (Current Employee) – Winston-Salem, NC – 5 July 2017
B/E Aerospace is a great company with a lot of dedicated, friendly employees. The culture is one of hard work, consistently high quality execution and personal accountability. Management has high expectations and, for those that can deliver, high visibility, increased responsibility and reward follow. The workforce is lean and driven, with most employees capable of moving mountains. This isn't the place for those not capable of/interested in high quality/quantity output. Lots of opportunities exist for growth through extra projects for those that want to learn more.
Great opportunities, good pay, promote from within
Working here would really help you grow especially in dealing stress and work changes. You'll be able to meet diff. kind of persons. Good management also. And what i love throughout my ojt days is the dessert being served alongside with the free meals.
Warehouse Lead/ Line Lead (Former Employee) – Salem, NC – 26 May 2017
A typical day at work can be looked at like any other warehouse day-to-day job. However the manufacturing side of it was interesting with being able to see how airplane seats were made from scratch. You begin to see the importance of your position and how you fit in the whole manufacturing processes. Most positions (from what I seen) were fairly easy after being trained, but the ones that showed strong work ethics and went the extra mile were awarded lead positions. Lead positions were not given necessarily to the next senior person in line, but who showed the most potential regardless of the time employed with the company. I made lead twice in two different facilities and that was a great accomplishment. Now, this is a union job and that itself has its good points, and some bad. My overall experience was good.
Guaranteed pay raises every year, opportunity for advancement
Wire runner/Harness builder (Current Employee) – Great Falls, MT – 24 May 2017
Depending on which area you worked in, you would most likely have been put to work and expected to just know how to do things with the management staying right up your butt regardless of how fast you worked. Any room for advancement as well as promises of raises and promotions were absolute lies. after two years of working, not a single cent was added to my pay rate. i only started looking forward to working once i was switched to FACC. good people, best management in the whole building.
