    Pros

    You receive a company car, when you work for the management staff. They do cover insurance as well. Which is fantastic.

    Cons

    The fact they give you a car they feel they can pull on your strings like a puppet.

    There is no consistency in schedule, or hours that you work. As a manager, you're expected to do hourly work, and have no time for reports during your 10 hour shift.

    Advice to Management

    Stop taking advantage of the managers.

    Pros

    Company itself may mean well and could be decent in other places. Company car is great benefit.

    Cons

    IAH is ran terribly. The inmates run the asylum and it is pretty difficult to manage from an Ops perspective.

    Advice to Management

    Replace airport management and phase out current RSA's. That would be a a start.

    Pros

    I have spoken with friends in other companies and feel we receive Great Benefits - We have a Strong Leadership Team - We have Worldwide recognized brands. Fair Pay for time on the job.

    Cons

    Auto Industry is rapidly changing and the future is unknown with autonomous cars quickly rising and Uber/Lyft doing the same.

    Advice to Management

    Keep working on ways to diversify in an ever changing environment. We need to stay ahead of the game on technology to keep up with the newer generation of travelers.

    Pros

    A free car that you can take home

    Cons

    Managers schedules shift every four weeks so you cant plan out any part of your life. You could end up working 10-12 days in a row totaling in 100-120 hour of work

    Advice to Management

    make schedules stable

    Pros

    Use of a company car and gas.

    Cons

    Lots of hours, an average of 68 hours weekly with a low salary. Forget what you learn in management or leadership in college and the companies own training program. There are lots of unethical behaviors from unethical sales, work place professionalism, and unethical leadership. This leads to a negative work environment. Have a hard time keeping good employees and managers.

    Advice to Management

    Implemented and follow through on some ethical leadership training, especially in tenure managers. Look to see why the high turn over rate.
