Advice to Senior Management – Understand your business and your customer. Listen to your employees and take some ownership in both the good and the bad.
Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
Pros – Nothing good to say about this company
Cons – Failed to make payroll - now in bankruptcy court.
Advice to Senior Management – Proper burial
Pros – Most of the employees were good people
Cons – Tyrannical CEO Delford Smith. Almost Psychotic with the expectations an demands he would yell (or have his #2 cronie yell). Would humiliate and abuse employees that didn't do the impossible for him. Personally saw 2 people die in my short time there from obvious job stress and abuse (one had a coronary, the other committed suicide). He is an "old school" "Mad men" type of relic living in the past (requires ties and suits, doesn't use a computer, gives preference to the pretty ladies, etc.) His bizarre business antics like spending to have those ridiculous museums built, and running up HUGE debts this poor company could never repay have driven the company into the ground. I believe that when he dies there will be MANY McMinnville residents dancing on his grave. He was ruthless, cold, hated people, and above all was GREEDY and materialistic.
Advice to Senior Management – This company is beyond help and has claimed bankruptcy because of it.
Pros – Work locations around the world. Aviation museum in McMinville, OR is top notch.
Cons – Completely disorganized. Chaos kept me from getting ATP license. Canceled my trip back to job site overseas the morning of.

Advice to Senior Management – N/A
– I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – Co-workers are great and very knowledgeable
Cons – Ownership is ruining the organization
Pros – Great co-workers, location, benefits when they were matched
Cons – Incompetent Management, Bankrupt, Micro-Management and elusive management.
Advice to Senior Management – Worked for a couple years there and in my opinion all management had no backbone. They were too scared to speak up for anybody as they felt they'd get their job hatched. As a Manager, your job is to manage and not have favorites and once in a while tell people that there hard work is noticed.
