Potential for greatness

Project Manager (Former Employee)

ProsTop flight engineering & technical staff. Excellent mentoring and experience for young professionals. Fair salaries. Excellent benefits. Employee owned. Hourly pay ensures fair treatment of employees workloads.

ConsBureaucratic organization. Little continuity of operation between "satellite" offices. Company tends to have top-heavy management. Management tends to ask a lot of lower level engineers; has tendency to not credit them with this in yearly performance reviews. Constant focus by upper management of improving the company share price detracts from core values.

Advice to Senior ManagementFoster better communication between levels of engineers/management. Foster better communication between offices in order to create stronger brand and make better use of shared resources.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
