    I worked at Comair full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    It was a close knit company where everyone knew each other or someone who knew your friend. It was a small company that grew from a small airline to a very large company.

    Cons

    That Comair was not able to expand to bigger aircrafts to travel to cities further away. That the company was not able to expand to have more bases to choose from.

    I have been working at Comair full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Employees had pride in our product and cared about the sucesses.
    I think overall the travelling public recognized our effort to provide a great service.

    Cons

    Outside entities and economic conditions were the final demise of a wonderful place to work.
    We all knew we were not being compensated at the same rate as a major airline for performing the same duties, but we had to swallow "that's the way it is at a Regional".

    Advice to Management

    Please create a new start-up airline with the heart of the 'old' Comair.

    Pros

    Employees genuinely care for one another and work well together as a team. Most are willing to go above and beyond to lend a helping hand.

    Cons

    Management is limited in their decision making authority by Parent company Delta airlines. Some autonomy would go a long way.

    Pros

    Now a small company. It provided me with income. I met some of best people willing to go the distance for the passengers

    Cons

    The company is shrinking. Many people are becoming unemployed. The union contracts are regularly broken leading to a high level of unhappiness.

    Advice to Management

    I was not in management. However, for the last few years, I've witnessed an ever increasing exodus out of the company.
