    Pros

    Every one is so interconnected at SkyWest. It really does feel like one big work family. Management and Corporate are only phone call away and they're always very swift with replies and finding solutions for problems. I love most of the crews I fly with and am so glad to have chosen to work for such wonderful company.

    Cons

    I really don't have any cons other than that I wish we had East Coast bases too haha.
