Frustrating and Unfulfilling

Pros

- The individuals are nice enough to work with.
- They are flexible with their hours and personal time off.

Cons

- If felt like, I imagine, working in a cave. The building was run down and had all sorts of issues. Even the light fixtures and sinks wouldn't work properly.
- Management would give little respect to those working under them.
- Many people were not qualified to work in their positions.
- No "perks" and terrible benefits.
- Little to no recognition given.
- One person would be expected to do the work of an entire team. Meaning positions were not filled and people were over worked.

    Pros

    Good benefits. Good coworkers and friendly/open management. Supportive of work/life balance I wasn't there for very long so I can't say much more.

    Cons

    Some of the technology is old and outdated.. Pay is low compared to some other industries, but the benefits are great.

    Great company, need to treat management like managers, not union hourly employees

    Pros

    * Great family type atmosphere
    * People are passionate about their business
    * Generally, good work-life balance (unless during busy season or project work)
    * One of the best in a tough industry
    * Relatively small company, can make a real impact

    Cons

    * Management seems to be slow to get rid of poor performers
    * Many leaders run things by micro-management, very much a command and control environment (more so in some areas than others)
    * Pay appears to be indexed to airline averages. That is fine if you only employ pilots and flight attendants, but it doesn't work when you have skilled tech and management employees. There are plenty of other employers on the west coast that will pay double for comparable work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean out the dead-wood and micro-managers for starters. Review compensation. Don't play games with resourcing. If you have a position open, fill it.
