    I have been working at ExpressJet Airlines full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great work environment. Excellent training. Super people. It seems like the malcontents are the newest people. Admittedly, it's no fun being on reserve for years but it's worth it to stick around. When I started there we were getting two new planes every week and morale was high. After 9/11 and the sale of Continental Express we started to slide, but it's still fun. Pilots have no trouble getting jobs with the majors because our reputation is so good. No other regional can match our reliability.

    Cons

    Fewer benefits than in the past. We miss our profit sharing and vacation passes. We're losing some of our best people to the majors.

    Advice to Management

    Bigger airplanes!
