Pros: paid parkings, working from home, near home
Cons: may required overtime
what is a Typical day at work:

Eh, Eh Eh come here!! My colleges are looking forward to work with me. I am a Customer oriented person.

What you learned:

It's all about People and communication. They only put computer in front of us to distract us from our goals....Communicating......If you are technically knowledgeable, it all about communicating...If – more... you are a communicator, it's all about knowing new technologies. Different profiles; different challenges!

Co-workers: it's all about respect, fun and mostly sharing knowledge to make the employees more independent in executing their daily tasks and jobs efficiently.

The hardest part of the job: Well again it's all about dealing with people. Isn't that what life is all about?

The most enjoyable part of the job: Well again, it's all about the people, sharing, developing ourselves with other co-workers, sharing experiences (whether they are work related or not) It can also be personal experiences related to children, aging parents which are also life challenges and experiences which are of actuality and may have impact on your work from time to time. – less

dreary repetitive work, can be difficult to get recognized by management
Industrial Engineer (Current Employee), Fort Worth, TXSeptember 29, 2014
Pros: good work/life balance, pay is industry standard
Cons: terrible corporate culture and company direction.
Standard typical day for aerospace industry, with good and benefits. People are great and its easy to make friends.

Distant management, poor decision are frequently made and there is little to no accountability in the upper organization. This is a company on a downward trajectory and without a solution to curb it.

Tool Design Clerk (Former Employee), Grand Prairie, TXJuly 14, 2014
Pros: salary
Cons: security
Bell was good to me in providing me with a good living. The main thing I'm not happy about is the job security. It doesn't matter what your job is, that when they cut people if your number is up, you're gone.

Executive Assistant / Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), Amarillo, TXJune 22, 2014
Pros: everything
Cons: layoff
I worked with a wonderful group of people that made it a joy to go to work everyday .

I had opportunities to take rides on helicopters, meet people from all over the world and it was fun. I worked with the government in putting together reports for them, I learned some things in my short time there about the different aircrafts that Bell designed and – more... built. It was a fascinating place to work. I had great supervisors and co-workers.

Unfortunately in this industry - layoffs were always around the corner and my position was affected by it. So my career was cut short but it was one of my most favorite jobs. – less
