    Great employer, nice campus

    Oct 5, 2022 - Associate Professor in Carbondale, IL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Quiet, student headcount is way down on campus so there's ample opportunity to research and work. The campus is gorgeous, and tree-covered, with young people all around, semi-good shopping, and food.

    Cons

    Employee morale is low. Pay is low. Student headcount is low. It seems like a dying campus, but the numbers and strategy are changing. There are actually programs on a waitlist, there are plenty of jobs and things to do in Carbondale.

    Decent paying CFI job if you can deal with some major problems

    Aug 27, 2022 - Certified Flight Instructor in Carbondale, IL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The constant pay and benefits are huge. They’ll pay for your CFII if you don’t already have it and no training contract is required. You can also work on a degree for free.

    Cons

    The flight program is very poorly run from the top down. Expect to not fly as much as you think (maybe 30-40 hours a month if you’re lucky). You will be teaching lots of grounds and sims. The saftey culture is rather poor as well and it’s only a matter of time until their is an accident. Unless you’re liked by management expect to be ignored and not offered anything special like ferry flights or recruiting trips. Selection for these types of events is in no way based on merit, skill as an instructor, or seniority.
