Pros

They have nice new aircraft and the employees are great to work with.

Cons

Management is comprised of bean-counters who know nothing of leadership or accountability. Their only mission is to fill their pockets and thus only concern is shareholder returns. They put safety below their own interests and that is not good in the airline business. In their defense they have put out some great ideas like RNAV approaches and the "Airport of the Future." The milage plan is also good. Mainly, the way they treat employees is awful and there is no leadership.

Advice to Management

Treat employees with respect and understand that customers and shareholders will be taken care of better by satisfied employees.

    Pros

    - The individuals are nice enough to work with.
    - They are flexible with their hours and personal time off.

    Cons

    - If felt like, I imagine, working in a cave. The building was run down and had all sorts of issues. Even the light fixtures and sinks wouldn't work properly.
    - Management would give little respect to those working under them.
    - Many people were not qualified to work in their positions.
    - No "perks" and terrible benefits.
    - Little to no recognition given.
    - One person would be expected to do the work of an entire team. Meaning positions were not filled and people were over worked.
