    Pros

    flight privileges...401k, nice facilities at the airport and corporate headquarters...easy hire..adequate training

    Cons

    Plantation style management-bureaucratic Many degrees of separation between management and employees Poor inflight service delays favoritism

    Advice to Management

    Talk to employees.see what they don't like about working conditions...talk to customers see what they don't like about the service...talk to middle managers...see what they don't like about the tasks and strategy..have a meeting for the whole company and let the president speak once a month to each level of employees.have managers share the information by video. get the employees and customer's opinion on the leadership.no sex on the job!

    Pros

    The best part of working at Pinnacle was the friendly coworkers. Many lifelong friends were made during my time there. This made for a very pleasant work environment.

    Cons

    Due to the company's recent emergence from bankrupcy, salaries and benefits are less than desired. In addition, because of the company's move to Minneapolis from Memphis many of the most senior employees are no longer there. This leaves a lot of gaps in operational experience.

    I have been working at Pinnacle Airlines full-time

    Pros

    Easy to keep your job because they continue to give warnings and if you take a test or review and fail, they just keep retraining until you pass.

    Cons

    Poor pay for the difficulty of the job, irate supervisors that always act inappropriately and unprofessionally, they hire people completely incompetent for the positions they have in the headquarters.


  9. No organization at all with this company now that it has moved to Minneapolis.

    I have been working at Pinnacle Airlines full-time

    Pros

    Pinnacle is typical of the regional airlines. It is a great place to start a career as they will hire people straight out of school. The experience you get in 121 operations is easily transfer Able to other companies in the industry. There is almost always avenues for advancement which is also a great learning opportunity.

    Cons

    You will never get rich working there. They have a policy of paying middle of the industry average for other small regional airlines. In fact, it is easier to to get a higher salary by leaving and coming back than through years of loyal service.

    Advice to Management

    Honestly evaluate employees and pay them what they are worth to retain the talent that is hired. It would go a long way toward building a more stable and knowledgable workforce.
