Stress Full
Engineer (Current Employee), Fort Worth, TXJune 12, 2014
Pros: it's a good paying job - decent benefits.
Cons: expect you to work too many hours
Too much work, too few people. Expect you to work long hours and weekends. No support, compassion, or understanding by leadership if you are not part of the in group.

Great products.
Director of Final Assembly & Flight Operations (Former Employee), Amarillo, TXJune 2, 2014
Pros: great pay and benefits.
Cons: bell/textron likes regime change.
Great place to work for the most part. Bell is prone to regime change at the top that is not always in the best interest of the company. Constant upper management (CEO/Sr.VP) changes always brings disruption.

worker (Current Employee), Fort Worth, TXApril 4, 2014
Pros: it's a paycheck
Cons: benifits are gone, jobs outsourced, low wages, many more
The Walmart of helicopter companies.
all I can say. Product quality is gone, Company is now run by bean counters and they have eviscerated the product. They no longer have control of parts, they're all drop shipped from vendors.
They want $10 hr workers, not highly skilled / compensated career minded people.

Great Company
Aerospace Logistics Engineering Specialist (Current Employee), Hurst, TXMarch 29, 2014
Pros: investing in employees, great working environment, and employee engagement
Cons: benefits are expensive and layoff seasons.
It's easy to focus on the negative in a down economy, however, Bell is a great company to work for. There is a lot of pride to say that you work for Bell Helicopter. Contrary to some, John Garrison has done a wonderful job at transforming a company that, until recently was stuck in the 1970's way of business. He's refocused the company's culture to – more... new product development instead of upgrading old technology. Additionally they focus on employee engagement and encourage/empower employees to take control of their own careers. – less

Quality (Former Employee), Hurst, TXMarch 21, 2014
This company is a great company to learn from but they cannot and will not hold on to talent and knowledge, they walk it right out the door, especially if you are not in the right "group". Management seems lost and lacks direction. The organization, in its present state, will not be able to compete in the markets that they are currently wanting to pursue, – more... with the exception of the next generation tiltrotor technology. – less

Poor Contract Job Experience
Resource Analyst (Former Employee), Hurst, TXMarch 13, 2014
This position I held was a contract position. The reception, training and guidance given by management and the department staff I was working with was very poor. I requested a phone to be installed in my office and never received one, I took over two weeks to get access to the departments network drives on the server to help with my job duties
