Pros

The company has a very laid back approach to buisness. The instructors or a great group to work with.

Cons

Mangement is not connected to the industry and is driven by the dollor. They need to realize that if you put your customers and employees first the dollor will come.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get connected with the customers (industry) and the employees. Stop being cheap and be good. Bring a quality product not just cheap.

    Pros

    The instructors are the greatest, they are the front line. The sim techs do a wonderful job with what they have. Great benefits.

    Cons

    When the simulators aren't fixed and problems are the same for years, the Instructor has egg on their face, and the clients do not return. Upper management doesn't want to do what the FAA requires of them for a part 142 Training Facility. One upper manager is known as the axe man. Employees don't get any warnings, he just comes in and tells the Center Manager to get rid of them. He even knows all the employees worry about who is going to be "next". It doesn't matter if they are doing a good job or not, he has a different plan. Each facility does not have the same requirements for Instructors as to how many airplanes they must teach. How can an Instructor maintain the proficiency required if you have to teach too many airplanes? How many is too many? I taught 8 and they wanted more! Other FAA Part 142 Facilities ony have you teach 1 airplane! The sim techs have their hands tied with how far they can go to repair the simulators. Its all dollar driven.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You don't want anyone to know why the President was really fired and replaced, do you?
