Poorly managed company

about
People snicker when you tell them you work for Hawker Beech. Communication and organization are poor for a company this size. Company has a culture of hiring for senior level positions externally.

It can be stressful with the economic environment

about
First and foremost this company has a serious middle management problem. Benefits continue to get cut and cost continue to go up. There is no organization, there are no policies and procedures.

Try to remember what it was like when you were in the middle ranks.

about
The senior leadership doesn't always seem to completely understand the market and customers it works with, though there is a current effort to remedy some of this. Unexpected lay-offs always loom over Hawker's reputation. Morally, you are part of the enormous war-making machine that is the defense industry.
