    I have been working at Crew Training International full-time

    Pros

    You enjoy coming to work each day because the people you work with are dedicated to accomplishing the job. Even when working geographically displaced from the corporate office, reach back for any assistance is quick and correct. The sense of purpose is evident, and the company always puts the customer first and will explore all options to exceed expectations.

    Cons

    The company is stove-piped based on the contracts it is working. This is especially true for subject matter experts; however, the company does overcome this by being all in when it comes to team effort.

    Advice to Management

    Keep the focus on your people. They want to do their best and ensure company success.

    Pros

    pays great, because the government needs you. CTI does not pay great benefits

    no benefits. meager 401k. you are a cog in a machine, not a valued employee

    Advice to Management

    Provide a benefits package. You are making plenty of money.

    I worked at Crew Training International

    Pros

    A small but surprisingly efficient and streamlined organization. Felt I was a valued member of a team instead of a cog in machine

    Cons

    Very little upwards mobility. Possibly attributed to the size of the company, it always appeared that wherever you were, that was where you would stay.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you are doing but keep an eye out for opportunities to promote from within, or allow people to expand their horizons

    I have been working at Crew Training International full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Managers care about workers and provide flexibility. Very relaxed atmosphere where people enjoy working. Senior management are all hired from large corporations and have extensive experience

    Cons

    Benefits aren't great and most jobs are tied to a contract. If the contract is lost so are the jobs associated with it. Very limited room for promotion.

    Advice to Management

    Beef up the benefits. They are important to employees and shouldnt be seen an an inconvenient cost to the company.

    I worked at Crew Training International full-time

    Pros

    The people that work contracts for this company are dedicated and committed to their work, and to one another. There is no greater group of people to work with. Corporate has usually made good choices in facilitating an environment that encourages this.

    Cons

    Corporate went through some staff turnover and a leadership change in the past few years, and in the course of that change, they lost some of the connection they had with their employees. Communication has always been an issue within corporate hq.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful to keep up with modern changes to the way work is done outside of the military system. Innovation is key, and I saw innovation quashed many times.

    Current Contractor - CTI in Offutt A F B, NE

    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Crew Training International for more than 3 years

    Pros

    CTI at the local level has excellent leadership with minimal detractors.

    Cons

    The Offutt CTI contract is a set aside for small business so with that one can usually expect slow promotions vs working for a larger organization.

    Advice to Management

    Be aggressive in retention of your talent.

  8. "Overall good, inconsistent leadership"

    I worked at Crew Training International full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Autonomy, provided necessary resources, out of the box thinking, supportive (mostly), not great health benefits because of low participation rate, tuition reimbursement (though that may be gone now)

    Cons

    Leadership, inconsistent direction/vision, follows whims that are "hot" with little planning of how to handle the management of new contract, nepotism

    Advice to Management

    Be more consistent in leadership style, create long term vision, not just following the wind, prepare more for contact wins so it is less of a burden and your employees don't have to scramble to figure it out.

    "Learning and development ahead of the industry"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    • Work/Life Balance

    • Senior Management
    Current Employee - Learning and Development in Memphis, TN

    I have been working at Crew Training International full-time

    Pros

    Constantly pushing the envelope in discovering new learning and development practices. All challenges are never answered with why; rather, they are answered with why not. The management looks within for ideas and innovation. It is fun to come to work knowing that you are more than just a drone in the workforce. You have the potential to shape the organization and help it's overall success.

    Cons

    Continuing to pursue DoD contracts exclusively limits the scope of the organization's potential. The solutions in place could help in the civilian business sector as well. Why constrain your talent?

    Advice to Management

    Continue to tap into the talent in house. The sky is the limit!

  10. "Great place to work where employees are valued and you can make a difference"

    I have been working at Crew Training International full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    CTI is very supportive of their employees. They strive to meet and grow their employees in many different areas including education. It is the first employer that I have worked for that does an annual survey for each department in the corporate structure, reports the results (good and bad) to the employees, outlines what they are doing or going to do to improve in the areas they were marked low.

    Cons

    CTI has a very diverse work group across the world and so sometimes understanding of local issues can be a little lean.
