    I worked at Miami Air full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    If you not part of flight crew you pretty much can have a decent balance between work and life. Is a awesome place to work"

    Cons

    Sometimes politics can be an issue but that's the norm in any company . There is not that much room for growth due to the size of the company.

    Advice to Management

    Be more assertive in employee productivity...

    I worked at Miami Air full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    They Type you in B-737 as required by Part 117.
    GREAT place to fly if under the new Latino chief pilot, otherwise life can be really miserable.
    Because of continuous losses of veteran pilots getting real flying jobs, they start using check ride failure as a mean of pilot retention preventing them to apply elsewhere.
    Be extremely skeptical of initial promises and positive projections.
    Good place if you have only 1500hours and just starting your flying career otherwise you can do easily MUCH better elsewhere.

    Cons

    3 year Training contract instead of the standard 1 or 2. Management often taking hostile stand toward Pilots trying to improve quality of life and pay which is one of the LOWEST in the industry.
    EXTREMELY "political" environment, having the few selected pilots doing very well with good trips and extra pay at the expense of the rest.
    Can become very frustrating also because the IBT Union is totally powerless. They are just good on deducting their monthly dues, no much else.
    New contract on the way but focused to improve conditions for Captains; First Officers are just considered "seat warmers" and replaceable NOT as "Captain in training". Very humiliating at times.
    Let's not mention the Bonus policies.
    Management get 100% of their yearly salary while the rest only crumbs. And no means to even verify the real profit amount since is still a "privately owned" company not required to disclose their books.
    Good luck.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being so greedy and follow the South West philosophy:
    "The customers are number 2. Number 1 are our Employees because if they are happy to work here, we never have to worry about the customers.
    They will be taken care beyond the highest expectations".
    The short term policies and the non reinvestment into the company translates in being "penny wise but dollar foolish".
    Their stand gave to us the impression they were ready to sell and cash in since no long term vision was ever verbalized.
    Very scary if you are stuck there close to retirement and not part of management.
    Very sad.

    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    -Health benefits
    -employee discount network
    -free tickets
    -free flight on ferry flights
    -surprisingly CEO cares and respects employees more than most managers and supervisors

    Cons

    -Dental and vision insurance is the worst ive seen
    -some managers lack in mangement training
    -company needs better incentives
    -no opportunities to advance within company
    -not paid what your worth
    -many have mentioned they used to be excited to come to work rather than just for a paycheck. Not anymore
    -company policy has been broken many times when it comes to per diem and vacation time
    -salaried employees are owned by the company and must be available 24/7
    -according to HR, departments supervisors and managers could practically get away with murder
    -many employees feel badgered for addressing issues or concerns. In many cases retaliated upon by manager
    -many see the company failing in a few years

    Advice to Management

    -take some kind of training on how to manage better
    -treat your employees with respect and appreciation rather than like mules 'cause the pay isnt worth it
    -stop being stuck up. Surprisingly unlike most companies, the CEO treats employees better than department managers
    -listen and pay attention to your employees more
    -stop making salaried employees feel like you own them 24/7
    -seniority in the company does not mean employees are ALWAYS wrong. HR really needs to be more neutral rather than always making employees wrong when they address managerial issues.
    -MAKE your employees feel comfortable to address rather than saying it.
    -offer room for expansion within company rather than ignoring current employee applications and strictly hiring outside newbies
