Rock-solid in an industry notorious for boom-bust cycles.
Simulator Technician II (Current Employee) – Dallas, TX – 8 April 2016
FlightSafety provides extremely stable employment in an industry notorious for lay-offs. It offers above average benefits, but low-average salary. Only gross incompetence or pornography on work computers will cause dismissal.
The manufacturing divisions offer the chance to work with very talented people.
Among its employees, the company, like the industry, tends to a high average age. You will not get forced out because of a calendar. You will more likely get asked to reconsider your voluntary retirement than encouraged to accept early retirement.
FlightSafety provides extremely stable employment. Promotions and pay raises come very rarely. I've had exactly two promotions and three raises in twelve years, despite high competence and superior results. Increases are no greater than absolutely necessary to keep staff.
The manufacturing divisions require very talented people. If you can't measure up, you'll hate it.
FlightSafety hires the best staff it can afford. If you expect too much money, they'll pass on your job offer.
Among its employees, the company, like the industry, tends to a high average age. It also tends to have mostly white employees in gender-traditional positions. I.e., women as secretaries and receptionists. This is a tendency, not an affirmative action violation. If this bothers you, you'll hate working there. If you expect new ideas and fresh thinking, forget it.
Extremely stable employment and above average benefits
Little advancement, less opportunity, even less training
