ProsCALSTAR has an amazing mission (saving lives everyday) which provides great satisfaction. Nearly everybody who works for CALSTAR is a person who is easy to get along with personally and professionally.

ConsPoor communication, Bad Leadership, and Horrible Training along with constant change have resulted in a culture that is hard to tolerate even in the current economic climate.

Advice to Senior Management1. Improve Communication
2. Start a Management Training Program
3. Don't let anymore great people turnover, do whatever it takes to sell them on staying through this turmoil.
4. Stop the divisions and get the organization on board as "one company"

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

lack of focus and leadership

Flight Crew (Current Employee)

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

Prosgood equipment and some dedicated caring people throughout organization

Consupper management doesn't have an aviation background, but mostly an accounting one. Read the WSJ article of why CFOs make lousy CEOs and you will understand. They seem to be confused when a balance sheet decision to save money has deeper ramifications eventually costing more money. After 2 years it's obvious to most employees that the "new" management is learning as they go, making numerous mistakes that go along with that process. There are better run and more professional organizations to work for. The only good review was from the HR director.
