    Pros

    Christmas paryt and raffles

    Cons

    No growth, horrible managerial decisions, no communication between staff/managers, horrible financial decisions, no budget money for evolving company etc..

    Advice to Management

    Stick to your promises, stop low-balling pay, make better financial/staffing decisions. Develop an ITIL standard and processes for an efficient and functional IT department.

    I worked at Atlas Air Worldwide full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    -Travel (for yourself)
    -3 year bonus pay, make sure to quit afterward

    Cons

    -Well below avg. pay
    -Nearly illegal workloads but they'll fire you before you become a problem
    -No danger pay from terrorist riddled countries they do their military contracts for
    -Upper management are incredibly incompetent and have no empathy/sympathy for their overworked workforce
    -Business model is heavily dependent on the US war, major % of staff will be let go afterwards

    Advice to Management

    Put yourselves in the shoes of your employee's. They're quitting because your lack of interest in their well being is making your policies negatively affect their lives. But it's obvious you don't really care because you're undercutting your workforce's well being to keep up with your contracts.

    I worked at Atlas Air Worldwide full-time

    Pros

    Go to places you never been.

    Cons

    No flight benefits. Majority of the people that work there are racist. Majority of the HR department has never been a flight attendant so they don't really know how this works. Scheduling doesn't know how to schedule. You hardly work. The pay is horrible. The insurance company they have an agreement with is super expensive and it's because HR has zero idea on how to negotiate. If one person in HR doesn't like you, they come up with dumb reasons just to bother you. No one at this company can be trusted!

    Advice to Management

    Learn to talk to people. Just because you been at a company for a while doesn't mean you're right. Learn to take advice from those experiences come from other airlines. Revamp the training and get rid of those who constantly complain. Because they also complain to the clients. Some questions are are asked for clarification and not with a hidden agenda.

    Pros

    stable, never furloughed, no bounced checks

    Cons

    contract is 20 years old, too many days away from home, pay is on the bottom of the scale, better opportunities elsewhere... does not compete with competitive contracts., best advice is to look for a more better Airline.

    Advice to Management

    treat employees better, share the wealth

    Pros

    I can't say too much good about the company, its nice to have gateway travel for the commute and they are so disorganized and disfunctional I manage to get a lot of time off.

    Cons

    They are so disorganized and disfunctional every day is maddening, you leave a wake of disdain and anger in your path on a trip as hotels are not booked, commercial deadhead flights are not booked or booked incorrectly, and ground transportation is a surprise if it actually does show up after a 20 hour duty day.

    Not to mention the embarrassing pay that is so far below industry standard it is off the charts by a factor of 50%+.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of declaring war in your enoloyees and suing them, engage them and allow them to take pride in seeing the company succeed.

    Pros

    Worldwide travel to some unique destinations. Great passengers.

    Cons

    The Atlas/FSI management literally go out of their way and are willing to waste money to make employees unhappy. Currently in contract negotiations which will be infinite. You have to live within about an hour of IAH airport in Houston.

    Advice to Management

    You have a lot of good people working for you, loyal talented people; but they are leaving in droves because you go out of your way to be mean. Promotion is totally based on making friends in the office, not tenure or talent. FSI - You are the puppets of Atlas but could help more if you wanted to. Sad.
