    I worked at PlaneTechs full-time

    Pros

    Fun Industry, Fast Paced and competitive, cyclical industry with lots of ups and downs.

    Cons

    No benefits for "contract" employees, not much room for growth, like most other places, good communication with some managers horrible with others.

    Advice to Management

    Offer employees more room for growth within the company, and better benefits for employees.

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

    Pros

    The third party aviation maintenance industry is very unstable and undergoes a lot of layoffs, so there are always candidates available to recruit and hire.

    Cons

    Long hours, daily disappointment, lack of upward mobility, lot of turn-over (field employees as well as internal staff), and lack of communication and feedback from sales staff. Company is currently worth half the value it was 4 years ago and when you're owned by a corporation which makes majority of its $$$ through acquisitions and sales, you're constantly wondering when the ax will fall.

    Advice to Management

    Hold your sales staff to the same standards you hold your recruiters.
