    I worked at HEICO full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Good work is rewarded. Very competitive and uncapped commission.

    Cons

    Work/life balance is not really there. Management had unrealistic expectations on sales goals that are driven by company investment in assets (which was close to nil). When there was an investment that had the prospect of massive margin, there was always a catch (bad part or parts), and buyers were forced to go back and demand a credit which would usually ruin the buying relationship.

    I worked at HEICO full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Their vacation policy is one of the best in any industry. The people that you work with on a daily basis are some of the finest folks you will ever meet and for the most part I was allowed to work without micromanagement and without anyone watching what time I came in or went out. If you work hard in some areas you get leeway to work how you want to and if you need to say go to a doctors appointment or a graduation during the day, I can say I was never penalized. Also, even though there is supposed to be a two week minimum notice to ask for time off, my bosses were never strict dictators because they understand that life happens. Again, the people you work with daily and SOME of the managers there are amazing people.

    Cons

    Salaries suck and negotiating after accepting a position is fruitless! Using competing job offers after being employed there or even threatening to leave is a hit or miss (mostly miss) strategy. Bonuses are mostly good, sometimes 7-10% of your income but the starting salary is horrible. They will use any excuse to not give you a pay raise. I went more than 4 years once without a pay increase and it wasn’t due to my work ethic or the fact I wasn’t worth it. After presenting my reasons for at least being paid in the range the market said I was worth, I got multiple excuses as to why no raises were given. I won’t repeat them here but I decided that any company that believes you can be paid lower than the bottom end of the market range and easily replaced, is not a company I should stick with so I left. My income went up 40% with my next company and I’ve gotten rave reviews after less than a year of service, the same reviews I got while working with HEICO.

    Pros

    Cool industry, the people who work there are amazing, other than management.

    Cons

    Very antiquated company, no real culture developed. As corporate as I can think of. Does not treat their employees well & does not reward loyalty or a good work ethic.

    I worked at HEICO full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Almost all Shop Employees were incredibly hard working. A very diverse crew with high morals and standards.

    Cons

    Management and up looked after themselves only. They don't even har a REAL Human Resources Manager. All management are in their current positions due to their lengthy employment status. Management would frequently speak negatively about other employees. Just so unprofessional and nasty work environment. Somebody at Corporate needs to take a look at the rapid turnover and weed out the bad seeds and reward the good apples.
