    Pros

    Continued growth. Okay benefits, if you're willing to pay for them. On-the-ground employees a great group to work with.

    Cons

    The growth and acquisitions of this company is also a con. They are more concerned about being bugger than doing a job well. Hostile work environments and clueless management.

    Pros

    None - It is a challenge to wake up everyday and go to this place.

    Cons

    Everyone is out for themselves. Lack of partnership, support, teamwork -- very frustrating. It is difficult to work across functional lines. Out-dated technology and processes, it seems like you are stepping back in time professionally.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in new technologies.

    I worked at BBA Aviation (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Met some really great people.

    Cons

    Office bullying is a regular practice. Non-responsive HR department.

    Advice to Management

    Treat people with dignity, respect and professionalism. It would most likely eliminate the high turnover.

    I have been working at BBA Aviation full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Large company with resources to invest in the business. Structure with written policies and procedures. Interesting industry. Potential for advancement if you are in favor with the right people.

    Cons

    Too compartmentalized. Rigid. Bully attitude. Politics get in the way of just getting your job done. Bureaucracy has overtaken headquarters and it is difficult to get quick decisions and obstacles removed.

    Advice to Management

    Walk the talk. Safety program is a dog and pony show. Values and vision communicated by people who demonstrate do what I say not what I do. Bigger title and more money does not make you better than someone else.

    Pros

    You have opportunity to learn about fuel trucks and airplanes but only if the supervisor will give you chance and train you good because they don't have time

    Cons

    They will tell you anyting to get you in the door but when you sign it's all different

    Advice to Management

    Management should know what we do so they can help cause we are always working over scheduled hours then told we are making too many hours

    Pros

    BBA wants growth and that is a very good thing. Things are always happening and new opportunities present themselves often. The environment is fluid and changes.

    Cons

    The group wants growth so bad that that at times they stifle themselves by changing so quickly when something appears not to go as planned. The group seems to have poor line of sight of the forecast of the future as it pertains to their businesses. They seem not to value their people as much as they say they do contrary to the smoke and mirrors they put on for show. The leadership and culture is built around the status quo (old world thinking) and management.
