    Management is very understanding. Great working environment and opportunity for growth. Decent pay

    Pros

    Good leadership. A lot of positive reinforcement. Management recognizes those that work hard and the perks are good. Lots of advancement opportunities.

    Cons

    The schedule can be challenging, however they are very up front about it. There are no surprises that you will work holidays and weekends.

    I worked at Flight Options

    Pros

    I worked in the call center and it could get crazy taking client (or their administrators) flight and food requests. Some clients were more demanding than others but overall it was solid company/job at the time.

    Cons

    Sales staff often promised clients things we couldn't deliver-but I believe that is how sales reps are in most industries.

    I worked at Flight Options full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The crews are great! They work hard to safely complete trips and work as cohesively as possible. Most go above and beyond to get that done. 95% of passengers are great!

    Cons

    No support from the office. It seems like an "us against them" mentality. They smile to your face then stab you in the back when you turn around. (unless you are one of the few "favored ones" who get by with pretty much anything!)

    I worked at Flight Options

    Pros

    Good place to gain experience. And like any place some people are willing to teach if your willing to learn.

    Cons

    No bonus offered. There was no match for the 401k program, unlike other companies. That was very disappointing.

    I worked at Flight Options full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    This was a great place to work! The upper level management team had an open door policy and made all employees feel comfortable.

    Cons

    The International Brotherhood of Teamsters got their grubby little claws into the pilot group. Their presence made working there quite difficult.

    I have been working at Flight Options

    Pros

    Paycheck share never late, owners are majority nice, food expenses covered while on the road, decent health care.

    Cons

    No flexibility, extremely difficult to get/take time off, extremely difficult to have vacation, awful balance between work and quality of life outside of work, petty coworkers. It feels very high school, everyone is looking for a reason to write in to management about each other. No employee morale. Quality of hotels & airlines very poor! I stayed at better places flying commercial. Everyone complains on the road but are too weak and scared to speak up to the company. If you do speak up you become a target. It's very difficult to have a life outside of this company. They do not allow any room for you To use PTO.

    I worked at Flight Options full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    You can come and go as you wish, o one really cares.

    Cons

    You can't trust a word they say. There are only 2-3 decision makers at the senior level. All others are simply pawns. They will eventually bankrupt every company they get their hands on after they bleed it dry. No raises but kind of understandable since there are very few profits.
