Flight Safety no so great
Network Administrator\PC Technician (Former Employee) –  Wichita, KSAugust 23, 2018
Flight Safety is not so great. They are to caught up in the corporate scene and are way outta touch with their employees. They talk about how they care about everyone that works there but that's all it is is talk. Plus their flight training is way to expensive when there are better alternatives to renew your pilots license.
Pros
nice people
Cons
Very bad managment

In a word, Insulting
Part 135 Coordinator/Records (Current Employee) –  DFW, TXJuly 15, 2018
I hear that once upon a time this was a great place to work. Now you will be hard-pressed to find anyone who isn't complaining about their job. The pay has dropped over the years, to the point where it is insulting compared to the industry average. The management is a joke, and they clearly don't have a clue what they are doing. They are a select core that is part of a click, and it is very apparent that when one rose through the ranks, they took all their friends with them. There is a reason why they always have openings, no one wants to be there, and they don't pay enough to put up with the BS when you are there. I cannot wait to leave.

Aviation Training Instructor (Current Employee) –  Savannah, GAJune 2, 2018
Hours are average depending on the number of clients in-house per week. There is no room for advancement, instructors come here to retire and that usually doesn't happen till they are 75 to 80 years old.

Slow and low
Worker (Current Employee) –  GeorgiaMarch 18, 2018
Typical work day is paper work and taking care of issues that arise from customer request to simulator issues.

Management is more that happy to help. Always greets you with a smile.

Work culture is very clicky, much like high school.

The hardest part about the job is showing up with a smile knowing that my schooling is going to waste and I'm stagnating, as well as pay is very low.

The best part of the job is that everything is climate controlled and if you like airplanes and flying this is a fun job. There is technology everywhere so tech buffs will love all the different PC's and OS's.
Pros
Very relaxed environment, friendly, easy to learn, everyone is halpful.
Cons
Low pay, only one raise per year, technology is dated.

PC tech is a fast pacted strict environment.
PC Technician (Former Employee) –  Broken Arrow, OKMarch 5, 2018
For my personality the job was a bit stressful, I liked the job, and the people. The hardest part of the job was the enforced quota for HD tickets no matter the difficulty of the task. There seem to be many strict and misleading policies, unspoken wrongs/personal pet peeves.
I'm sure every department is different but there seemed to be a high level of stress with all the techs.
