    I have been working at NetJets full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    One of the few companies in aviation that still treat pilot in the old fashion way. We get to fly to amazing destinations, live where we want to live and have a stable rostered published 2 months in advance

    Cons

    I can't think of any cons of flying for them a part for long term wait for a command. I would simply recommend it to anyone

    Advice to Management

    No much to advise. only down side is that management changes very often every couple of years.But despite this things always tends to improve

    I have been working at NetJets

    Pros

    Competitive salary and a great commission structure. the better you perform, the more you will earn. They have some nice events, where you can take part if they allow you. Pension scheme and private medical insurance are included after your probation period.

    Cons

    marketing strategies and tools are dated. company management thinks in the american way. they can create good performers, but the same time they don't have a problem of letting them go, which shows their employer value.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at NetJets full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good safety culture, very generous remuneration especially for small business jet operation, high quality often ex-military aircrew bring a wealth of experience and technical operating ability

    Cons

    Senior management appointments based on ambition and edginess rather than appropriate qualifications; numerous instances of feckless decision-making indicating a shortage of high level business skills amongst senior managers e.g. changing crew uniform design, tie design and aircraft livery and failing to control costs whilst an aviation market downturn loomed; selected senior staff comments in open forum including... "Uncle Warren will pay" and "It's great fun playing airline" indicating a commercially wasteful and naive management culture that fails to deliver best potential value for money for clients paying high fees; corporate bullying - poor man management - undermining morale.

    Advice to Management

    Appoint better qualified people to key positions; dismiss commercially inept managers; desist from the practice of appointing over-ambitious pilots to management posts and allowing juggling between work as aircrew and as management but insist on personnel being one or the other.
