A fun company with a great pilot group.

Pros

Challenging flying, with a lot of variety in destinations and mission-types. Nice aircraft. Top-notch leadership with a great business plan. Pilot Union and Management are superior to competing airlines. Gateway travel means that you can live where you want, and the company provides travel to begin your trip-whether it starts in your base airport or elsewhere.

Cons

Longer trip lengths (up to 17 days) can be a challenge for those who are not used to long-haul international flying. On the up-side, days off are in large blocks that allow weeks of free-time at home.

    Pros

    -The upper level management is stable in capable - most have either been with the company or with in the industry for a long time. As a result the company is pretty well run from a financial standpoint.
    -Office is decent, if isolated

    Cons

    -Culture is a bit weird, this doesn't feel like a company in NY, has more of a middle american vibe. Possibly due to the connection with the military among some of the senior staff.
    -salary/other compensation not great
    -Lack of transferable knowledge for other jobs - how many other airlines are you really going to work at in your career? Unless you never want to leave it doesn't make sense to invest a lot of time here.
    Shockingly little vacation time/holidays - If you're not going to pay people you could at least give them a little more time off! There were days that even morgan stanley (the other company in the building) was closed and we were open.
    -Not a lot of room for growth as upper management is pretty entrenched
    -Generally boring work environment, colleagues aren't very social.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If nothing else people meed more time off/work flexibility -i.e. the ability to work from home occasionally. The work load isn't that high that this isn't possible and it won't cost the company anything.
