    The paycheck keeps coming in.

    Basically 24 hour on call 5 days a week. The schedule changes several times each week making it impossible to schedule any activities during the work week. The hours are long, sometimes up to 14 hour days. The work weeks an average of 50 hours plus with plenty of stress, mis- communications and unhappy coworkers and clients.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate and start to treat the employees better.

    Pros

    Very interesting business. Learn about the aviation business and flight simulators. Dealing with pilots and their companies is a great experience.

    Cons

    Dallas Location: Doing things like in the 80s, no process, no direction, Male chauvinists coworkers, prejudice against foreigners. Bad internal competition, gossip and all the bad things you see in a company stuck in time with idiots running all the way from managers to the CEO. NOT customer centered. The whole HR quit recently.

    Advice to Management

    Fire the CEO or bring a new force that will actually care about clients and employees and then you might beat the competition.
