      Pros

      We are a diverse company. We have really cool helicopters and do amazing things with them.

      Cons

      Because we are a small company, we do not hire enough people to do some of the jobs. We end up over-extending our employees in some departments.

      sr management ability to have solid strategy = below average & poor communication toward employees

      Oct 7, 2011 -  in Central Point, OR

      Business Outlook

      Pros

      long term employees are great and love their work - they know the helicopter in & out. we built the company for years and have been successful at operating the aircraft and repairing parts. lots of pride in work

      Cons

      sr mgt team doesn't get it. their pay seems more important than employees. Communication to Central Point is haphazard or seems "filtered" - this is part of the really low morale in the ranks. culture has changed down with recent direction and try to be public. lots of turnover at Portland office. recently benefits keep getting cut. lots of spending for "show" not getting the job done

      Good place to work, very slow to change, lots of paperwork

      Pros

      The pay is good for the area and the Air-crane helicopter is really fun to see.

      Cons

      Management is really bad. Almost comically so. You get used to it after a while, so as long as continual poor decision making doesn't bother you its not a bad place to work for 5+ years.
