    I worked at Mesa Air full-time for more than 9 years

    Pros

    Good people and lots of talent. Becomes a family after A while.

    Cons

    Poor retention, they don't expect people to stay longer than 2 years and they don't like to give raises.

    Advice to Management

    To get and retain talented and skilled individuals you have to pay the industry standard or more. If not you'll keep seeing a revolving door of people coming and going.
