    Pros

    Casual dress, health care benefits, laid back atmosphere, complementary airport shuttle service, flexible schedule

    Cons

    Travel benefits - flights are always full and children over 23 can't fly unless on a buddy pass. Buddy passes only given for perfect attendence. Pay is low and raises are so low they are nonexsistent.

    Advice to Management

    Pay more and overhaul the travel benefits


  2. The company is very family oriented.

    Pros

    They have profit sharing, and 401K. Employees own part of the company, and they get an update every quarter. The more one puts in, the more one gets back.

    Cons

    To some, the company is unionized. Union dues are deducted and they take care of employee, but they may sometimes be a little slow.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management needs to spend some time with employees on a regular basis.
