    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Porter Airlines full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    You get flight benefits, but that's industry standard in aviation... so like...

    Cons

    This is a long list. Staff are incredibly undervalued and treated as dispensable and disposable. If there is any kind of internal promotion it is typically the wrong people getting promoted. Compensation is usually about half of that anywhere else in the industry so turnover is high as people jump ship as soon as they have any experience. As such new staff are constantly encountering the same issues that would be solved with even a slight amount of experience. Management have a tendency to ignore their staff, and even something as simple as getting a response to an email is more difficult than it should be. This list could be much longer but I'd sooner not even put the effort in.
