    Pros

    It's a good industry to be in and the scale of the company is good which keeps your perspective global.

    Cons

    They have no idea what they are doing. It's a hiring company, not a developing staff company. Very few promotions available for existing staff.

    Advice to Management

    Tell the staff what the strategy is, and then train the staff to help you execute it.

    I worked at CHC Helicopter (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great people trying to do a crazy amount of work! Bankruptcy was challenging but worked through it.

    Cons

    EVP, VP and some Director level management do not respect work-life balance. Hostile work environment at best. Employees are considered expendable. Until there is a management change, do NOT work at CHC.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to respect individuals and realize that you are nothing without your team.

    I worked at CHC Helicopter full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I truly enjoyed my tenure at CHC at many levels. My co-workers were great & I felt Management did their best to communicate with us.

    Cons

    As an experienced (25 yrs) buyer I found the the level of dollar amount left to our judgement very low before needing approval.

    Advice to Management

    I know Management works hard at communicating at the Town Hall meetings. Just give it straight & leave no surprises especially when it comes to Lay-Offs being over...
