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

    Pros

    EAA is an amazing place to work with a 1-of-a-kind experience. You get the best of both worlds - business minded, but small non-profit. Ignore the Debbie Downers on here. There is a small group of people who like to complain and add to the problems instead of working to solve them. Yes, there are a lot of men here, but they are respectful to ALL employees regardless of gender (the complainers aren't top performers, so it's easy to blame that on being a woman instead of realizing you're just not good at your job, ps I'm female). There has been turnover recently, but ALL good! Many people who leave to experience working elsewhere end up wanting to come back. The current HR team is amazing! They're actually working to clean up the problem employees and develop those of us who wish to make a career here and are motivated to do good work! You will develop long lasting friendships here. Great benefits, including an employee flying club. Access to fun events (Family Flight Fest, Hops N Props, Christmas in the Air, new exhibits, etc). Flexibility. Fun employee events (cooking competitions, basketball games, picnics, plane rides).

    Cons

    -Extra hours in the summer in preparation for AirVenture, but you get to experience AirVenture, which is totally worth it
    - Senior leadership isn't as available if you need 1:1 recognition. They're all approachable and nice.
    -Significant volunteer population can be difficult as they're not governed like regular employees are
    -No wellness programs
    -Not always immediate vertical growth, but lots of horizontal growth in other departments
    -Some managers need more guidance on being good managers

    Advice to Management

    -Focus on the employees who want to be here and help those who don't move on.
    -Give managers additional training
