    Pros

    I like to say they are family oriented. Never an issue with asking for time off or if you need to handle personal business

    Cons

    At times it seems as if you go in circles and there is never a set priority in place.

    Great benefits, toxic culture

    Pros

    The benefits, from insurance to time off, are some of the best I've ever experienced.

    Cons

    Extremely political environment, i.e., it's not what you know, it's who you know. Very difficult to get promoted otherwise. Management is terrible at communication and very secretive. Policies are not enforced the same way across departments/divisions.

    Good for building out skills in different roles

    Pros

    Good coworkers that care about their work. Lots of training opportunities. Good benefits.

    Cons

    Lots of red tape with too many layers of processes. Senior leaders are very siloed and protective of their turf preventing true collaboration between business units. Creates internal turnover and vacancies thus the ones that are there have doubled work loads. Some leaders are very militaristic in style and My way or the highway. Opinions not valued. Not flexible enough for remote work.

    Low Pay and Outdated Work Policies

    Jun 9, 2022 - Manager in Dallas, TX

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Free parking. Most buildings have good working AC. Free coffee. One bathroom per gender, but the soap is free.

    Cons

    Pay is extremely low compared to other companies. Work schedules are rigid and outdated. Accrual rates for time off are ok, but workload is too heavy to actually use it. Office culture is stale, prevalent ageism and nepotism. You're expected to smile and laugh with executives to stroke their egos. Little opportunity for climbing the corporate ladder. New executive positions are created out of thin air. Annual pay increases are limited to 3% which means your pay rate is worth less each year if inflation is over 3% (which it always is). If you are lucky enough to get promoted, your new pay is capped to 10% of what your starting salary was, regardless of position. Most "employees" are contractors that work for other firms and not actually employees of the airport. The contract employee also gets paid 40%-50% more than the airport employee and they expect us to work together as "family". Went to HR once expecting confidentiality and that was clearly a mistake. They immediately went to my supervisor too which damaged my relationship with them.
