  2. It's great if you are a full-time airline employee. . .not as a contractor.

    Pros

    Fast paced environment.
    Good place to learn the airline industry.
    There are good people to work with despite the bad apples.

    Cons

    If you are a contractor, don't expect equal treatment as the full-time employees do.
    A lot of CYA.
    Contractors are the first to be used as scapegoats for full-time employee incompetency.

    Advice to Management

    Learn that your greatest resource are the ones who have the most passion for their jobs and the success of the airline in mind. I saw too many good people let go for the wrong reasons. Promote from within, in particular the contractors, they are your greatest resource for new ideas. Encourage retirement for those employees that believe that doing the same things may have worked for the past 30 years ago does not translate in today's world.
