    Pros

    Team environment and very family oriented. Employee feedback was always well received and even acted upon when appropriate. Leadership was outstanding!

    Cons

    Very little internal employee development existed for front-line employees. Performance reviews were used, but process steps were usually ignored in favor of getting something turned into the human resource group so that deadlines could be met.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a more realistive performance measurement process and enforce the complete process and work better at promotions from within.

    Pros

    The company used to be a stellar place to work but started to decline about eight years ago. Flight benefits were good and the old corporate culture made it a fun place to work.

    Cons

    Benefits were slowly whittled away. Pay increases were promised but were either insulting or non-existent. Poor decisions by key management pushed the entire airline down the wrong side.

    Advice to Management

    Due diligence needs to be completed before making decisions that affect the entire airline.

    Pros

    Living in WI and better than average airline style life. Midwest is perfect small airline to work for and still be able to achieve comprable mainline salary. unfortunatly the company has furloughed most of its workforce and is being very unreasonable with its consessionary contract demands. Asking for a 35-50% pay cut is completely unreasonable. They are trying to scare us into folding to their demands and it probably will not work. The worst part is the customers will be the ones that suffer with another unhappy labor force. I hope Midwest turns it around but I must say I am losing hope.

    Cons

    Managment has no idea what to do with the company and is farming out most of the jobs to subcontractors

    Advice to Management

    stop betraying the employees that built your company.

  10. Don't get too vested in any idea or innovation
