    Bristow Group North American Business Unit

    Current Employee (Current Employee)
    Galliano, LA

    ProsField employees are motivated to get the job done efficiently and safely. Field employees help each other out and are generally very competent and professional. Good salary and benefits package. Good equipment and generally good working and living conditions. CEO has his head in the right place.

    ConsLiving conditions at some bases are deplorable. New Iberia HQ manages as if the GOM field bases are a burden and an embarrassment to them. New Iberia generally serves as a holding tank for incompetent managers and their cousins who "kind of" want to work 9 to 5. In short, the company HQs is overstaffed and overfed and operates as if the field bases are there to support THEM.

    Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to weed out duds in New Iberia. Ask to stay overnight in the New Horizons trailer park and Patterson base apartments. Tell NABU managers to push back from their desks and get out into the field.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Avi tech

    Avionics Technician (Current Employee)
    New Iberia, LA

    ProsIf you know what you are doing, then working as an avionics tech is almost like stealing money. The job is beyond easy for what we get paid.

    ConsThe only real con to this job in Bristow is that there is ABSOLUTELY no room for advancement as an avionics tech. You will have to wait at least ten years for someone to retire or die to move up.

    Advice to Senior ManagementA lot of people seem to think Bristow management has been making a lot of bad decisions lately, but I believe that they are on the right track. Management has been able to avoid layoffs even during the recent oil slump.

    Great if a field position is obtained

    Avionics Technician (Current Employee)
    New Iberia, LA

    ProsGreat work schedule, 7&7
    Co-workers in the field are very hard workers and slackers are usually held accountable.
    The harder your field team works the shorter you workday will be.

    ConsAbsolutely no area for advancement for avionics.
    Boring/easy work if in hangar.
    Hangar is full of people that like to spread rumors more than they like to work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementSenior management seems to be making the right decisions. Air Logistics has avoided layoffs by making several changes lately. I say keep up the good work. a a a a
