If your not busy, that makes you expendable
F7X/F8X Mechanic (Current Employee) –  Little Rock, ARJanuary 7, 2019
If you're not busy, you're not being productive, if you're not productive you're expendable. You're expected to go above and beyond, until something goes wrong, then you get reprimanded.

Company aside, most of the people that you work with are some of the finest individuals you could ever meet. After sometime working with them, they do become your second family.
Pros
Benefits
Cons
Short lunch, minimal raises, bonus are more myth than lengend, unless your part of the upper management bracket, do not expect in house training to help advance your career.

Family environment where everyone works for the common good
Security Lead Officer (Former Employee) –  Little Rock, AROctober 18, 2018
Dassault Falcon Jet employed 2,000 to 3,000 people. We all worked together with the common goal of manufacturing the best corporate jets in the world and making the buying experience the most pleasant one and they, the customer, would enjoy repeating. Oddly, even though our numbers were very large, we knew each other on a personal level, as family. Working was a pleasant experience.
Pros
Full benefits, Friendly environment

Understaffed
Shop Support Inventory Specialist (Former Employee) –  Little Rock, ARNovember 28, 2018
After the lay off at Dassault Falcon Jet. We kept losing workers that were finally replaced with contractors. If you get on the evening shift, get ready to be there for a while. I worked the evening shift for 5 years with no chance of getting on day shift.

Low compensation and no career advancement
Program Engineering Manager (Former Employee) –  Little Ferry, NJSeptember 9, 2018
I have a managing job at Dassault Falcon Jet, and it was sad to realize that there were no career opportunities. People don't move much, and people tend to stay in the company for a long time. So, you do not have any career opportunity. I guess people stay because they are familiar with the system and don't want to bother learning another one. Depends on the team, but usually, you have a limited ownership in your projects. Finally, there is no communication from the upper management, and I found myself in embarrassing situations with customers because the upper management did not share information. I do not recommend working there unless you want to work in aviation near NYC.
Pros
Job security
Cons
Management, autonomous, ownership, career growth, work culture

Excellent company
Electrical Systems Engineer (Former Employee) –  Wilmington, DESeptember 25, 2018
A typical day at work would entail the design and integration of various systems into the existing aircraft platform. This would include physical examination of the various sections of the aircraft and working closely with the avionics installation team.

I already possessed the necessary skills for the position, but learned a great deal about the intricacies of the FalconJet airframes.

The management was very professional and a pleasure to work for.

The workplace culture was very professional and close knit at the same time, a very good atmosphere.job

All parts of an aviation job could be considered quite demanding but there is not a particular portion that I would consider hard, it was all an interesting and engaging endeavor.

To see a project to completion, especially the issuing of the STC, was the most enjoyable.
Pros
Great atmosphere, lots of good work
Cons
None

Engineering Data Coordinator/Cert Admin (Former Employee) –  Little Rock, ARSeptember 10, 2018
A typical day at work consisted of generating/verifying reports to comparing engineering records/data for company accuracy that is sent to the FAA for government approval; also performed fifth percentile female test when needed on aircraft. I learned a substantially amount about FAA regulations and the intricacy of manufacturing aircrafts by single parts as small and precise as the bolts and screws all the way to the massive divans. The upper management teams and HR department were fantastic but there were extreme management issues and bias in the lower management level. The culture of the workplace was amazing and very diverse. The hardest part of the job was directly related to management issues and favoritism generated by the manager of my department being very unkind and generating rumors about each subordinate at different times and excluding fellow co-workers which created a hostile working environment. The most enjoyable part of the job was the great team and diverse population working throughout the company.
Pros
Great benefits and pay
Cons
Unprofessional Lower Management Staff; exclusion and bullying
