talk about a hurricaneJan 10, 2023 - Graphic Design in Oshkosh, WIRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
If you get in the right department or have the right management, it could be a great place to work Really cool projects to work on if you get them
Really toxic work environment. My experience in design was everything was running late/behind and design was always stuck past 5 trying to catchup on projects, working through lunches, coming in on weekends, etc (especially the few months before AirVenture). There was a huge change in employees in the marketing department and the design team never got their relief of having a fully staffed team for over a year. It was a lot of pressure to have on a half staffed team and 1 intern.Continue reading

Great People...Mar 18, 2023 - Administrative Assistant in Oshkosh, WIRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook

Don't Shoot the MessengerAug 24, 2022 - ManagerRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Pleasant co-workers. Fantastic members and volunteers. Huge diversity in employee talents, skill level and interests.
Lack of career opportunity for younger people. Low pay - you receive "excitement" instead of pay. EAA should offer more flexibility during slow times of year. The people who do well manage up, and ignore those that they actually manage. No remote work despite it working well during the pandemic.Continue reading

Planes and Members are cool, but EAA SLT is not...Jun 20, 2022 - Anonymous EmployeeRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
The members, your customers, are awesome! I formed many life-long friendships with them. The flying club, getting to fly on warbirds, and the retirement plan were great!
Senior Leadership You know it is a problem when a retired police officer is running Publications, Marketing, Membership, and Retail. If the individual is a good leader who knows how to delegate, stay out of the way, and support his management team, there will be no issues. However, in this case, the talented managers beneath him have either left or been pushed out (not due to performance), and gone on to greater success elsewhere. The decision to give more and more responsibility to this individual starts at the top and the rest of the SLT is too afraid to push back. July Work-Life Balance You'll work most weekends and you're not likely to get vacation approved during this month. Culture Watch your back. Senior leaders are quick to throw you under the bus, and yet they offer very little constructive feedback. There is a sense that they feel threatened by your competence and managing up can be challenging. Gossip runs rampant and conversations with HR are not confidential. HR Sooner or later, they will walk into an employment discrimination lawsuit. They have a pattern of releasing or "reclassifying" employees who have been there over 5 years and are 40+ to cut or freeze their pay. They also have no documented policy for reclassifying positions and their claims of having all positions on a review cycle are not supported by documentation. Sadly, individuals who have been impacted by this, typically, have many years of solid work performance reviews.Continue reading

HorribleJul 18, 2022 - Senior AccountantRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook

- Coworkers are great - Management is very hands on and approachable - Everyone helps and wears many hats, especially during AirVenture week - Fun atmosphere - Collaborative environment, I feel that my ideas are heard and appreciated - Opportunity to learn to fly! - Museum is beautiful and such a neat place to explore - Benefits are generous and on par with for-profit companies - The members are wonderful and it makes my work mean something
- Say goodbye to a couple weeks of your life in July during the convention, fortunately AirVenture is so much fun you won’t mind. - Compensation is lower than for-profit companies, but the mission and spirit is worth it!

All recent reviews are lies.Dec 5, 2021 - Anonymous Employee in Oshkosh, WIRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
-The airshow *can* be fun, if you're lucky enough to not get a grunt job.
-Toxic. The worst I have ever experienced. Many emotionally and mentally abusive "leaders" which leads you to feel completely worthless and beat down. -Benefits aren't great and you're made to feel bad for taking days off. -No time off (literally - not allowed) starting June through the first week of August. -No breaks for your hard work during the airshow. You get ONE day off after working 3+ weeks with not a single day off. -Low pay. -A LOT of turnover and restructuring. -No concern regarding toxic leaders. They'll just keep 'em around, no worries. -CEO is very hands off. -Zero diversity -Zero work/life balance. Literally the most stressful place I have ever worked, all due to the culture.Continue reading

GREAT place to work!!!Aug 24, 2021 - Anonymous EmployeeRecommendCEO ApprovalBusiness Outlook
Everyone is incredibly friendly and inclusive from day one. Supervisors are hand-on and incredibly resourceful for a wide variety of things. Truly a positive environment all around. A place where people of all walks of life can come together and share a common goal. Positions are diverse enough so you are never truly stuck in a rut from day to day. Senior leadership team are all present and extremely helpful as well as happy to help, which I feel is rare nowadays. Would recommend working at EAA for anyone even remotely interested, plus, you get to work in an office with a museum attached!
Can not think of anything!
