    Pros

    Not much to share, the logo looks great!

    Terrible company to work for. The turnover is horrocious. Most folks don't make it past a year or two...even management. There has been four DO in the past 5 years, that speaks volume.

    Advice to Management

    Be honest with your employees.

    Pros

    They provide excellent opportunity for advancement, whether it is in different aircraft or a management role. there is a fair bit of diversity, although the primary focus is on oil and gas there is opportunity for tourism, fire fighting, utility work and international work. They offer a good benefits package with different health options and 401k matching.

    Cons

    There has been a lot of management turnover, and sometimes a lack of clarity as to our company vision. One of the challenges with a company this size is there can be a disconnect between management and folks in the field, therefore allowing too much room for rumors to develop due to the lack of communication, and face to face visits.

    Pros

    Benefits comparable with industry, Some shining stars

    Cons

    Era management is its own worst enemy. With every bit of growth the old regime curses the progress resulting in under par performance. Constant change with personnel. Not a work environment that grows and respects workers.

    Advice to Management

    Just because you have been managing the same way for 20 years doesn't mean its right. Spend more time in the field talking to people that really run the day to day operations
