    I worked at Flight Safety as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Small team, but really productive. Really enjoyed working my summer internship there. We even had an intern meetings with the company president and he gladly accepted our ideas and input towards the internship program.

    Cons

    The building is huge, so to do anything or to walk anywhere takes a minimum of 10 minutes.

    I have been working at Flight Safety full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Free coffee for employees and free food once in a while. This is a good place to learn the trade of a flight simulator technician. The company will give you plenthy of OJT if you are coming out of a different career field.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the company is very backwards for 2015. There is a strong good old boy system in place and you will not move to the next pay grade unless you are buddy's with the right people in management. The company still does about 50 % of its business on paper instead of electronically. There is active practice of public shaming if you make a mistake. If you decide to work here and I would not recommend it save every email you get. Management will try to trip you up with I have this email from 3 years ago and you made the same mistake again.

    Advice to Management

    Pull the company out of the past and trim the overlapping positions at the director and Vice President level. If you did this it would create a noticeable cost savings for the yearly budget numbers.

    Pros

    Good facility and simulators. Instructors are very good.

    Cons

    Treat their employees like trash. Constantly critical of you and not helpful at all. Poor benifits, and no retirement program. Employee moral is very low. Supervisors for the most part are less qualified than the employees. No real trriining on company policy and proceedures. Learn on your own by being admonished for mistakes.

    Advice to Management

    Select your midlevel management with a thought as to weather they have any people skills. Make sure that you listen to the people that they supervise. Stop the policy of placing a formal letter in employee file for any little thing. The we will get you and fire you atmosphire is very strong.

    I worked at Flight Safety full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    They have nice facility and Simulators. Most of the Instructors are excellent. Management tries try to insure the clients are taken care of (WHEN IT IS CONVIENT FOR THEM) ,Free lunch once a week for clients and workers. Ins. is fair.

    Cons

    Most Hostile work environment I have ever been subjected to. Very negative managers with a lets get something on you attitude. Many people quit while I was there, and more after I had left. One of the reason had to leave because of stress and very poor employee moral. They do a very poor job of training their instructors how to follow their guidelines, and procedures. You are thrown to the wolves, and then written up for every possible mistake big, or small. This allows them not to not give raises, and also have a file to easily fire you. They offer No Retirement program. You are required to work many more hours than your fixed NOT HOURLY salary is basd on, and then surposedly given comp. time for this. Problem is you really never get the comp time. I left with over 100 hours of comp time. I also got no vacation one year as I was continually told they could not approve it at the times I requested as they were too busy. I got no vacation that year and was not paid for it as they told me it was my fault.

    Advice to Management

    They should all be able to manage people without threats and punishment. Not be so intimidating, but rather more helpful. The company needs people that are qualified to manage, not picked because they are bad instructors not popular with the clients and therefore not subject to much contact with the clients. Or have been there for longer time than some. I feel that the Center Level Management is the weakest part of this company. Most have not got a clue how to manage people or how to relate to them. Basically no people skills, and they really don't care.

    Pros

    Most people alright, decent benefits

    Cons

    Incompetence among certain managers and employees, as well as lack of people skills.

    Advice to Management

    Assess some employees a little better! Some of the people there are worthless, and the ones that are worthy ending taking on the brunt of the (already) large workload. Train (one) manager on how to not take things so PERSONALLY, and to perhaps learn when someone is being insubordinate to his face.
