    Pros

    BBA wants growth and that is a very good thing. Things are always happening and new opportunities present themselves often. The environment is fluid and changes.

    Cons

    The group wants growth so bad that that at times they stifle themselves by changing so quickly when something appears not to go as planned. The group seems to have poor line of sight of the forecast of the future as it pertains to their businesses. They seem not to value their people as much as they say they do contrary to the smoke and mirrors they put on for show. The leadership and culture is built around the status quo (old world thinking) and management.

    I have been working at BBA Aviation full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some very smart people in higher positions. Good benefits. A lot of learning opportunities. There are good career progression opportunities if you are willing to move around the country.

    Cons

    Unethical. Making the bottom line justifies all the means. Usually, deficiencies in the financial performance are resolved by layoffs.
    "Boys' Club" culture. Very political.
    Training is limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put people first.
    Focus on LT growth, instead of just making the bonus for the year.

    Pros

    Learned a great deal and met a lot of wonderful people.

    Cons

    Constant Senior Management Change and operational changes as well. Centralization, outsourcing, layoffs, etc. always kept you guessing. The airport locations use run down equipment and use mostly minimum wage employees who do not qualify for benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Outsourcing doesn't always work.

    Pros

    Gained valuable experiences. Managers very understanding. Good people to work with. It is a growing company with prominent future. Good environment.

    Cons

    Very hard work, not great pay.
    Sometimes it is hard to gain support between departments. Not a lot of training.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Value all employees equally. Compensation should be similar for similar position, not to vary between subsidiaries. More employee encouragement needed.

    Pros

    Great benefits and training opportunities.
    Management appreciates and rewards hard work
    Transparent communication

    Cons

    Local senior management seemed to be forced by corporate to "sing the song"
    Division management were all talking heads and would take forever to support hiring needs
    lack of appreciation from corporate when bonus came around, we were always told how much money we made, but someone else was getting the reward.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If corporate really appreciates the remote sites then they need to show it not just talk it!
