    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    Fanatastic work enviroment, not a day goes by where I don't laugh several times. Casual dress enviroment, get to wear jeans in winter and shorts in summer. Cheap flight benefits are great as well, save thousands a year in travel expenses.

    Cons

    Hours can be long, airline operates 24/7 so I can be called anytime. Profit share is not guarateed, can be a very nice cheque or nothing at all.

    Advice to Management

    Having a CEO with actual airline experience would probably make WJ a more successful airline. Be careful about expanding too much into non-airline ventures.

    Pros

    The flight benefits and the profit share plan when things were great. SOME of the people were great to work with and the culture is amazing (when it works).

    Cons

    If you didnt fit in with the clique in your own department - it didnt matter how good your work was or how well you were respected in other departments. Several of the VPs acted like children and get promoted even when they dont have appropriate experience.

    Advice to Management

    Seriously consider looking at people's strengths and abilities - not how popular or pretty they are - when it comes to promotions, etc.
