    Pros

    Great team environment. Flight benefits!! Profit Sharing. Upper management shows they care about the frontline. Not every company can say that lol.

    Cons

    Need more staff to help with the demand. Also the work life balance in the front line operations side isnt the best. Off days are random and based off of seniorty. Not the traditional 9-5 M-f.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure new employees are trained well. Most come into the operation underprepared. Also with the new upgrades in technolgy, help bring older and more senior employees up to date as well so that every team member can hold their own weight.

    Pros

    - Work can be hands on
    - Travel Benefits
    - Each work day is never same the same. Your job will have you tackling different problems each day and learning more about about aircaft systems.

    Cons

    - There are a lot of procedures and details that need to be learned before you can efficiently complete work. All of the procedures are necessary to maintain compliance with FAA requirments and ensure aircraft reliability.

    Advice to Management

    - The company is doing very well and to help keep the aircraft flying more funding for projects would be helpful. Otherwise keep it up I have no complaints.

    Pros

    Great 401K
    Some conveniences like on-site gym
    Many great leaders in the company
    Company as a whole is trying to get better (but it has a long way to go)
    There are some very smart people in the company
    Financially successful and thus great profit sharing

    Cons

    Minimal vacation time for many years
    Flight benefits are completely overrated; be prepared to buy tickets almost exclusively if you work in corporate
    In corporate, expect your job to change every 6 to 12 months; and not where you want it to go.
    No work-life balance in any of these departments (and probably more: Revenue Management, Marketing, SkyMiles, Finance
    Some leaders have no people or team skills; expect to feel like you have no life and they will block your career moves internally.
    Healthcare is very expensive. Expect a family plan deductible of at least $2500 or much higher.
    Promotions have slowed down considerably in the past two years for many.
    Don't expect any team building, orientation, or training if you are in corporate.
    Overall the company has some good policies like work-life balance but most departments opt-out.
    Expect to work your heart out with no reward or recognition for it.

    Advice to Management

    Your team members are people! You should support them, not make their lives so stressful everyday.
