Stressful Environment. Employees are treated like they are disposable.

I worked at Aviation Institute Of Maintenance full-time

Pros

The instructors really care about their students.

Cons

People are hired with the idea that they will not last (ie. very little investment in the individual employee such as roles explained or training given. Little interest in developing more than a passing relationship with the new hire.) "Counselors" pressured to provide counseling with AIMs bottom line in mind, not the perceived best interest of the student. Management has poor professional boundaries (ie. yelling.)

    Pros

    Many instructors and staff truly love what they do for the students and it shows

    Cons

    School management does not follow-up on staff/student requests quickly, does not coomunicate effectively the "big picture" so staff/students have a clear understanding of what is expected. They work "reactively" and not "proactively". The main excuse I have heard so many times is that "I have 400 students to deal with", yet many times the littlest act of communication, to stay informed with students/staff, is overlooked.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your staff and students, learn to set time apart directly for them so they completely understand what is going on and this just may control the tension a bit.
