Absolutely the best experience an intern could ask for

Ground Operations Emergency Response (Former Employee)
Dallas, TX

ProsGreat environment, Wonderful facilities. Best coworkers anyone could ask for. Extremely diverse crowd, one of every kind. Amazing resources for self education. Great documentation overall.

ConsSlow to move ideas through red tape. Felt like advancement was more based upon waiting a certain amouont of time rather than merit / performance.

Advice to Senior ManagementYou have some of the best employees that still have more to give than just ideas. Look to tap (not over tax) into and get the most from your employees and ALL of their talents.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
