    Pros

    Safety is their main concern, PERIOD. Great helicopters, great maintenance, good salary, great training.

    Cons

    We need to get more bases in East Texas so people don't have to put up with the current ones there.

    Advice to Management

    I can give them any comments directly so no need to say anything here.

    Pros

    Very well organized company. High quality & safety are top priorities. Great facility, well maintained equipment. Pay on high end for similar companies.

    Cons

    Old school management sometimes a little arrogant. Not open to different ways of doing things. Big advocates for "that's how it's always been done!"

    Advice to Management

    While loyal employees and a long term experience base are good things, people who have worked at other companies may have good ideas. Familiarity breeds contempt!

    Pros

    It is a good stepping stone to get a better paying job doing the exact same thing just more money and more self pride.

    Cons

    I would be told that even though there was not any work orders to do on the helicopter sto sit there in the helio and hold a screwdriver to look busy for my 12 hr work day. This makes for a very long day. We would work 7 off 7 at the hanger. Here is the best part of it. On Sundays at some part of the day our first 40hrs would stop and the second week's 40hrs would start to they wouldnt have to pay overtime!

    Advice to Management

    If you want your employees to stay and not go to the competitor to do the same job then you should listen to the workers and pay them competitive to your competitor that is in the same town.

    Pros

    Great starting salary, based on experience level. Company seems to take care of employees. Chances for advancement.

    Cons

    "Pool" pilots can be moved around a lot during a hitch. 14 days on can be a pretty long stretch, especially if the flying is heavy.

    Advice to Management

    More attention can be given to the VFR pilots. Continue to back pilots on weather decisions.

    I worked at PHI - Louisiana full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great benefits -401k match really good, life insurance provided, long term disability insurance, can earn up to four weeks vacation,

    Cons

    Upper management doesn't share information with staff so you don't know what is going on, minimal holidays-don't even get Mardi Gras holiday in south Louisiana,

    Advice to Management

    Management doesn't share information. Segments are pitted against each other and that comes from management.

    Pros

    Very safe and professional atmosphere. Training was excellent.

    Cons

    No, really. After left the company, my opinion is still that there were no cons.
