    I worked at Airborne 1 Corporation full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    The people are solid, the opportunity to grow is significant, and the company shares the equity with employees. Lot's of responsibility and authority, coolest teams and programs. This group ROCKED. Airplanes, lasers, helicopters, and occasional hollywood productions, on a beach-lifestyle environment.

    Cons

    "Get it done, no matter what" makes for some occasional difficult assignments in difficult conditions. Lot's of travel, with programs in over 20 countries, on every continent.

    Pros

    Good people. Good technology (at the time), Lots of travel.

    Cons

    Many financial problems. Always seemed like we were on the brink of BK. Purchased by GDI. Took them over a year to figure out what to do with us. When they finally did, they promptly layed of 4 of their most senior people. (I was one of them)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not get rid of the people that help build a small business.

    Challenging and exciting work, but management and HR leave much to be desired.

    I worked at Airborne 1 Corporation

    Pros

    Travel
    Very little micro-managing
    Advanced technology
    Time off when it was needed

    Cons

    Hard time getting reimbursed expenses
    Expected to pay for work expenses up front.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treating and communicating with employees in the field more effectively. Often did not know what project a crew was on or how long we had been out in the field. Pay your employees expenses and per diem in a timely fashion (one month at the latest). Invest in company credit cards to field crew does not have to front the company money and wait to be reimbursed. Understand what your employees are doing if they are on contract to another company. Salary did not meet with working conditions as contract work was more labor intensive and required more management then your traditional field roles.
