    Pros

    Your Coworkers will be some of the best people you ever get the chance to work with.

    Cons

    Mgmt tells you what they want you to know or nothing at all. You are not given very much assistance from your mgmt. team. Hiring and Promotion have a lot to do with nepotism or being one of the favorites. They constantly want million dollar work ethic for a minimum wage paycheck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire all management and start fresh with the people best for the jobs and not just the ones with the most seniority. Require all Managers/Leaders to attend yearly leadership seminars. Just because someone has the knowledge of the department doesn't mean they have the best spirit to lead.

    Only about 10% of the Technician at my Base actually do good work. The other 90% try to get away with doing little or no work.

    Current Employee - Airline Pilot in Atlanta, GA

    Pros

    -Work with pretty good people
    - Travel benefits are decent

    Cons

    -If you are on reserve status and have to commute to your base, you will only see your family a few times a week. Possible to work 9 days with only 1 day off.
    -High amount of responsibility for poverty-level wages.
    -Scheduling will try to schedule you in breach of contract on a regular basis.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay your employees more or new hires will stop showing up to fly your planes. Treat your pilots as professionals.
