- Hillsboro Aviation, Inc.27.Mar 2017
Forward-thinking culture of respect and hard work. Most senior management has been here for 10+ years (some 15+)
Support from management
Strong support from management, although an independent work process is important as everyone runs at a fast pace. One of the best things about working here is that management goes above and beyond to ensure that staff have the tools they need to succeed.
Couldn't ask for a better team to work on. There has been some attrition (as stated in previous review), but those shifts made us a stronger team with positive and hard-working individuals.
Communication is good. Fast-paced environment, making clear communication and strong initiative essential.
Strong gender equality: two females on our senior leadership team, an all-female accounting team, and women represented in each of the other five divisions (pilots, avionics techs, FBO, maintenance support)
Attitude towards older colleagues
Respectful towards staff of all ages.
Overall compensation for your work
Compensation is good- the aviation pays less as a whole, but my understanding is that Hillsboro Aviation is on par or above industry standard.
Office / Work Environment
Beautiful facilities- brand new as of May 2016.
We are staffed appropriately, and on the lean side in some areas, requiring flexibility with doing whatever you need to do to make things happen. At a management level, especially, we work hard to get the job done.
With the new building and a 37-year history behind us, the company has a great reputation on both a local and international level.
Suggestions for improvement
- The fast-paced environment can mean shifting goals; it's helpful to have clear and frequent direction on priorities.
What I like about the company
Big-company projects with small-company culture. World-renowned and fantastic people to work with.
What I dislike about the company
It'd be great to have flex hours, although this is not industry standard.
