Company Culture

Supervisors commend deserving employees and the company contributes to a work climate of fairness and trust.

Support from management

Supervisors' conduct was exemplary. They set realistic targets, made clear and comprehensible decisions and involved employees in the decision-making process.

Teamwork

Colleagues worked well together and interacted in an honest and direct manner. The entire production process is based on teamwork.

Freedom to work independently

Workload is fairly distributed and employees have a say in the structuring of their own area of responsibility.

Internal Communication

Employees are well-informed about results, successes and profits through regular meetings and receive necessary information for their work.

Gender Equality

Women have the same career opportunities as men. I have worked alongside many women and have worked for several women supervisors, managers, directors and vice presidents.

Attitude towards older colleagues

Long-serving employees are appreciated supported. The average age of employees at Bell when I was hired in 1990 was 55.

Career Development

The company offers good opportunities for personal development. Criteria for professional advancement are established and employees are being supported through further training.

Overall compensation for your work

Excellent benefits. Salary meets or exceeds industry standard. Retirement savings, matching savings plan, health, dental, vision and life insurance. Sick pay, overtime, vacation, and paid holidays.

Office / Work Environment

Working conditions are excellent. Effort is made to provide a safe and clean working environment with the proper tools for the job and necessary personal protection equipment.

Environmental Friendliness

The company is active in protecting the environment with their recycling program and attention to waste and runoff of hazardous materials.

Work-Life Balance

Generous amount of vacation days and sick days which can be scheduled at any time with prior notice of 24 hours or less in emergencies. Family hardship obligations are taken into consideration regarding shifts. Regularly scheduled 40-hour work week. Overtime optional.

Company Image

Working at Bell is a privilege not taken lightly by employees. Bell Helicopter is known all over the world for quality, safety and customer service.

Job Security

I was laid off with over 24 years at Bell due to budget cuts in military spending. However, 24 years at the same company is still a secure amount of time.

Handicapped Accessibility

Company provides accessibility tools and resources for disabled employees. Facilities provide accessibility options with ramps, elevators, disabled parking and shuttle service.

Workplace Safety

Safety is the top priority at Bell. Working conditions comply with OSHA standards and the company provide sufficient training to ensure an accident-free workplace.

Challenging Work

Challenging work that offers a sense of pride and the opportunity to contribute to the success of individual programs.

Inclusive / Diverse

The company promotes diversity as a method of achieving business by supporting diverse opinions and ideas.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Less corporate extravagance and less so-called "Best Practices" and business model gimmicks.

What I like about the company

Excellent pay and benefits, challenging and rewarding work, friendships with fellow employees and being part of the Bell family.

What I dislike about the company

Having to rely on politicians in Washington for funding of military programs.
