I have been working at Aviation Institute Of Maintenance full-time

Pros

Many instructors and staff truly love what they do for the students and it shows

Cons

School management does not follow-up on staff/student requests quickly, does not coomunicate effectively the "big picture" so staff/students have a clear understanding of what is expected. They work "reactively" and not "proactively". The main excuse I have heard so many times is that "I have 400 students to deal with", yet many times the littlest act of communication, to stay informed with students/staff, is overlooked.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to your staff and students, learn to set time apart directly for them so they completely understand what is going on and this just may control the tension a bit.

    I have been working at Aviation Institute Of Maintenance full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    It is nice to have weekends and most holidays off. Lower management seems to be open to suggestions and willing to make improvements.

    Cons

    The current pay is not enough for what is expected by middle management. The campus needs more support and direction from senior (corporate) management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This campus needs better organization, clear communication, and consistency.However, things seem to be improving overall.
