    I have been working at Active Aero as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Very fast pace and fun environment to work at. Everyday is a new experience with new challenges to solve and conquer. There is never a down time as there is something to do.

    Cons

    Everything detail of everything you do is analyzed. Even when you have done everything right you left feeling as though something could be done better.

    Advice to Management

    New Talent that is learning things at a fast things needs to be recognized and not stagnated. Growth can be a good thing when people are very knowledgeable of the industry.

    Pros

    Good work environment very relaxed if you are doing your job. Unlimited overtime opportunities so if you are willing to work you can make decent money

    Cons

    extremely low pay with no balances. You work essentially a sales position with no commission but are expected to try to find the best money making opportunities

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing the company and doing most everything the way it is now. except raise the pay for the employees

    Pros

    I have been with Active on Demand for 6 years. Over the last 2 years our operations department has nearly doubled in size due to fast growth. Many new accounts being added contribute to the growth. Management is fair and reasonable. They provide progress reviews regularly and help employees stay on a career path that is designed between you and your manager to further your advancement within the company. Great package of benefits include health / life insurance / vacation time.

    Cons

    Shifts can change on short notice when new accounts are being launched. (they are a 24/7 operation) - new people are expected to pick up the basics fast and there is not much room for error. This can result in a tough first few months until you settle in.

    Advice to Management

    Keep growing the company.

    Pros

    As a pilots we just received a 30% pay increase, we are also paid a trip bonus for every load we fly, and loading pay if we are required to touch the cargo. And this is in addition to our salary. They have a very good relationship with the FAA and the training is thorough, even though it's challenging, they want you to succeed washing out means giving up. Management is very down to earth and more than willing to work with you, if you are an employee in good standings willing to work with them.

    Cons

    The Airplanes are old, 1960's era, each cockpit is set up differently. One airplane have no GPS, another has a great GPS, the auto pilot functions is limited, no FMS computer, and no APU in the Falcon Jets.

    Advice to Management

    Updated avionics would help retain pilots.

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

    Pros

    Very relaxed and a good 1st job out of college. Exciting and learn a lot about the industry.

    Cons

    Managers micro manage and very little room for advancement. Very little fulfillment and you're never recognized for good work only asked for more production. No raises period.

    Advice to Management

    Give annual raises or an incentive program.

    Pros

    Some of the employees are very nice and I made some great friends

    Cons

    Management has no respect for employees. There were/are many safety concerns regarding their older fleet of planes.

    Advice to Management

    Get in touch with what is actually going on. Make an investment in your employees and treat them fairly. Quit always looking out for yourself and taking the path of least resistance....work a little harder to do the right thing for the greater good.

    Pros

    Minimum hour guarantee- you get paid even if you don't fly, Paid training, Aircraft safety instruction, and an over all small company. The people are very friendly and in general USA Jet is a great crew.

    Cons

    You are expected to shop for the aircraft, stock, and clean. Often random drug testing and no flight benifits

    Advice to Management

    get your stuff together!
