have worked at Cessna for 25 years and been quite successful growing into a professional leadership position. The company has provided nicely for my family so Its hard to write some of these things, but the truth is the truth. It has simply turned into a job, where the leadership is expected to no longer care about their employees, due to every decision expected to be made to drive cost out, and improve the margins. Too many inexperienced leaders have been put into position that they are not ready for. Examples are the dramatic turnover over the previous 5 years, not empowering the workforce as we once did, and discarding good people when they speak up about objections to the current path. Cessna has lost their way, from a once proud culture that was the jewel of Wichita, to just another employer that will work you into the ground, and not show the appreciation for you. If you are young or bright, stay away, and help companies like Koch....
Well Paying, great brand, respected within the industry
disorganization, lack of respect, Culture has changed to dispair
