    I have been working at Hawker Pacific full-time

    Pros

    The people are all friendly and helpful
    The industry is fascinating
    Benefits are fair

    Cons

    Below average pay
    Limited room to advance

    Invest in your employees and do the hard work to see real rewards. Cutting pay and trying to cut corners will only hurt moral, keep turnover high and business will suffer as a result.
