    I worked at FlightWorks full-time

    Pros

    Professional team, lots of talented, dedicated individuals there. Good pay and benefits, never denied anything if it was justified

    Cons

    Communication could be better between departments, potential problems easily solved with a phone call or email.

    Advice to Management

    I would say emphasize communication and hold people accountable (in a coaching, not chastising way) and guide them with it.


  2. It is challenging and rewarding working at FlightWorks. No two days are the same.

    Pros

    You can make a positive impact in the organization. The culture is innovative and encouraging.

    Cons

    Things change rapidly. This can be perceived as a good thing or a bad thing. To be successful at FlightWorks, you must be flexible and committed to doing the best job that you can on a daily basis.

    Advice to Management

    Ensure the lines of communication flow upward and downward for continuity throughout the organization.

    Pros

    Great Management team. It is finally a place that is fun to work and encourages ideas and input. Co-workers are great and the company has really made improvements in the last 6 months.

    Cons

    Almost too late on the changes. This was a challenging place to work up to six months ago and the damage that the previous Managment did was almost too drastic to overcome.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work and continue to improve the communicaitons throughtout the company!


  6. Good employees, exceptional aircraft, great clients - but most challenging top management I have ever dealt with

    Pros

    Strong recognition within the business aviation community. Top notch equipment, nice facilities, high-end clients who appreciate good service. Above all absolutely no compromises on safety!

    Cons

    Top leadership is both incompetent and unbalanced, runs the organization with a very short leash--'my way or the highway' mentality. Employees treated with little or no respect at almost all levels - like commodities rather than people. No meaningful communication down with employees and very little guidance / support provided. CEO resigned and left company in mid 2009 with no notice to employees, and other execs left suddenly after that with little or no explanation---one within just a few days of starting. Regret ever taking this job and glad to be somewhere else now..

    Advice to Management

    Please resign!

    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Outside of senior leadership, the people are great to work with.

    Cons

    You aren't treated as a valuable employee. Senior leadership would not share information with employees.

    Advice to Management

    Removing some key leaders was a step in the right direction.

    Pros

    Outstanding people at all levels. Executive team is completely dedicated to success and growth. Sounds business principles will see this company flourish. Great ownership and stable workplace. The company has dedicated itself to finder A+ winners at every management position - they are well-positioned for the future! Well-balanced approach between commercial aviation and government contracts.

    Cons

    Located in the Atlanta area can be challenging to attract and land top talent - so far, they have done an outstanding job. They are in a building mode right now and so everyone is doing a little extra to get this company elevated to an industry leader. Executive team needs to be invovled in all aspects of business right now until momentum and infrastructure is built.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing. The changes that have taken place in this company in the last 8 months are extraordinary and are starting to show some serious results!

    Pros

    Senior leadership has taken the necessary steps and cleaned out the ineffective leaders. This has unleashed a new type of communication and spirit at this company. I like the direction and recent investment in employee development. Also, the recent volunteer efforts by s core group of employees is welcomed by senior management.

    Cons

    None at this time - but continue to move the culture shift forward that was started about 6 months ago.

    Advice to Management

    Keep rolling forward with the plan you have installed.

    Pros

    Other than management, the employees attempt to work as a team. Good people with good intentions. Aircraft are well maintained.

    Cons

    As others have stated in previous reviews, the problem at FlightWorks is the executive team. They are incapable of running the company. I have never seen a larger, more fragile group of egos. They treat their employees as pawns, or worse. They have no clue what they are doing, and refuse to recognize that fact. They have a "bond" or "pact" that they will stay united, no matter what. The decisions they make are childish and unprofessional. There are a couple members of the executive team that have good intentions and may even mean well, but their "bond" keeps them from making good business decisions. Ironically, even with this bond they have, each of them keeps information from the others.

    Advice to Management

    They do not take advice.
