    I worked at NetJets (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent pay scales, outstanding benefits, very fair management

    Cons

    LOTS of travel. Reason I retired. Tired of airline travel, hotels, restaurants. Great for the young folks looking for adventure though.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work keeping Netjets a wonderful company to work for.

    I worked at NetJets full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Health Benefits, Clean Drinking Water, Flushable Toilets

    Cons

    Unstable Employment, Integrity, Company Culture a Complete Facade, No Leadership, No Advancement or Personal Growth, Unclear Goals, Draining Management

    Advice to Management

    Follow what you preach to your employees about ethics, culture, integrity. Your "goals" are incredible and the people you hire live by these high standards. The lack of ethics, culture, and integrity is not leading in successful directions.

    A paycheck, benefits, free coffee.

    Upper and middle management is a joke. They are always quick to pass the blame and don't care about there employees.

    Advice to Management

    Replace management and supervision in MCC. They are people working there not cattle

    I worked at NetJets full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    During all my years with NetJets the fellow Employees were great and fun to work. It has changed over the last few years and there are still some good people there. The work as challenging at times.

    Cons

    The middle management was less to desired. They do not have a passion for their jobs, the company, or their people. Several of them lack leadership skills and some operate recklessly. I have personally seem managers there create hostile work environments and I would NEVER recommend this place to anyone that wants to work there especially if they are an IT person.

    Advice to Management

    I would recommend to take a close look at your IT managers and up and see if they really understand the 20/20 Flight Plan and Service is everyone job. I bet there are several there that could gain from Leadership Training or maybe get some New Managers in there that could motivate the teams to a higher level. I know they can cause I have seen it and there are some great people there but so many have left and keep on leaving. I understand it is about the Owner's experience but it does come down to the employee's and if they are not doing good it could effect the experience. Attitudes are infectious and It really needs to Radiate Positivity.

    Pros

    Great benefits, pay is pretty good and can be great if you work more days per month. Airline and hotel point accrual. Full medical, dental, paid vacations. Some flexibility with scheduling.

    Cons

    The work at times is extremely difficult and includes light cooking, washing dishes, cleaning (including the toilet), berthing beds, etc. Also when you are not flying, but on a work day, for example at a hotel or at home, they can keep you on "standby" meaning they can call you out to fly at any moment. Also in a work day they are allowed to use you for 14 or the 24 hours as per the contract.

    Pros

    Get great experience in the sense of planning and analytics. Meet and coordinate with multiple departments. Gives you a good insight to what it takes to make the whole operation work.

    Cons

    Setting up aircraft Maintenance events can be quite challenging at times due to routing changes and vendors in the area. It can be very aggravating when you can't get flight scheduling to route an aircraft to a sufficient location.

    Pros

    This is a fun industry to work in. For crew members there are great travel benefits. Team members are good people.

    Cons

    Demanding work load. Pilots and Flight Attendants (unionized) receive better compensation and work balance than other employees, even considering the type of job. Very limited career path in most departments. Bonuses are uncertain, they seem to be pulled out of the air if at all after the year is over (and they supposedly replaced salary increases a few years ago).

    Advice to Management

    Improve the career development possibilities for employees. Career paths are not evident, mentoring would be useful, and a staff development culture would be beneficial.

    Pros

    Great 401k match, in past years the bonus has been good, even if the salaries are a bit low. Interesting business model and day to day.

    Cons

    Lots of new management, but nothing has really changed. They pay lip service to being focused on employee happiness, but that's about it. New CEO shrunk the ELT team claiming it he wanted a flatter structure to be closer to the people on the ground, 6 months later and it's exploded out and larger than ever. Have made small tweaks to employee "total compensation" package, but again, mostly lip service. New vacation policy is no better than the old. Management still have a massive disconnect from the day to day people who keep the company running and middle management is disconnected from both.

    Advice to Management

    Get more involved with the people. Ask for real feedback from the people with boots on the ground. Talk to people. Not this hokey survey every 6 months that you ignore anyways. Also... get rid of the middle management, they are either lying to you or incompetent.

    Pros

    No two days are ever the same, work with some of the best people I have ever known and the company genuinely cares about your career.

    Cons

    You have to be able to adapt to change l. This environment can cause stress for anyone that is not used to it.

    Advice to Management

    Be careful to change too much too quickly.

    Pros

    Exciting business with lots of talented and passionate people committed to it's success. Comp and benefits packages are top notch.

    Cons

    Its a very fast moving culture prone to changes, especially over the past few years. This is exciting for some and stressful for others. You have to be willing to work hard and pivot when necessary.

    Advice to Management

    Stick with the plan that you have outlined and continue to increase the amount of communication with your people.
