    I have been working at Air Wisconsin Airlines full-time

    Pros

    It's small enough that it truly feels like a family environment, but big enough to take care of the company and it's people.

    Cons

    The fact that it's contract work, and could be gone from Columbia, SC in 5 years, like Norfolk, VA

    Advice to Management

    Continue doing what you're doing in regards to visiting your maintenance bases, while rewarding and encouraging high performance.

    Pros

    Contract details that do not allow the company to completely strip you of all your pay when being used.

    Cons

    Understaffed, Managers and Management “Pilots” that do not care about their pilots or flight attendants, no sense of loyalty to their front line workers, undertones of the company willing to do anything to make or save a few dollars on the backs of their underpayed staff, general willingness to only care about their bottom line, no free flow of information from management to the front line workers, and a general use of bait and switch tactics.

    Advice to Management

    Remember that the front line pilots, flight attendants, and maintenance workers that keep the organization running have their lives affected by the decisions that are being made at the management level. Those decisions should not be taken lightly and with only the budgetary gains and losses in mind. Holiday and “rah rah” messages only work if the workers know and trust you to take care of their best interests. That care has never been shown from the CEO down through the executives to the front line managers. One would think at a small company there would be much more personal interaction and care given and received, yet this is not the case. Basically the “queens and kings” stay in their “castle” and if they actually do come out they would rather use their employees to step on than to show mutual respect and shake a hand or two. Overall, there is tons of room for improvement on the management side. Silver-lining is that you can only improve from here.
