Pros

Good education plan, direct bill no reimbursement and many colleges and universities participate. Flexibility in certain departments. Centrally located, commute is a breeze within New Haven & Fairfield Counties. Really cool to see and end product that can defy gravity and that you have had a hand in creating.

Cons

Not a great place for women. Very little growth from within, many of Senior Management are not what we would call "home grown" but from another Helicopter company. Promotion of work life balance, however, in practice it is very non existent and hard to balance once on the program. Salary employees have a very expensive medical plan that requires a large amount of Cost Sharing from the employee which we do not understand as the company is self insured and has the ability to have much more control over the choice of plan. No vision coverage. Vacation time takes 7 years or more to earn an additional week.

    Pros

    Employee scholar program is excellent. Plus the stock awards that is also given (though) the company has done away with the award these days.

    Cons

    You have to be diligent about your own self development and fight for recognition and compensation for your outstanding achievements.

    Advice to Management

    Management should pay closer to what employees have to say. Many a times we have good ideas that can lead the company in a better direction.
