The reality is that this place is not going to change and it is not going to get any better anytime soon. lack of Electronic weight and balance and iPads are not the fundamental problem and will not be the solution. What you are really faced with is a management team that has no experience at the helm of an organization nor a proven track record in doubling an organization in size and this has already been proven over the past year or so. Management continues to assign individuals to positions that they really do not belong in, this can be seen by the most recent recruiting advertisement that went out via company email to be retracted several minutes later.

No one at this company has any objectives to be held accountable to and management does not have a 1, 3, 5, and 10 year plan in place. These are simple things that you learn in business school and it does not matter if you are a finance, accounting, HR, or marketing major they are basic business principles that are fundamentally broken at CommutAir.

On the positive side this company is the perfect size and the timing is excellent for an industry outsider who is up and coming to take the helm do a complete top to bottom overhaul of personnel, infrastructure, and asset management. So many low hanging fruit can be had to start making a difference over the next 30, 60, and 90 days that will allow all around positive changes. In less than a year time frame this could be a completely different organization headed in the a positive growth direction and in less than two years they could position themselves to be in the acquisition rather than in being acquired.

By competing against other regionals and comparing or emulating yourselves to them you will continue to loose focus on your growth. I challenge management to think outside the box, break the rules, be a leader, be creative and do not settle for the norm or for the industry standard. This is how great companies come about.

That email didn't just go out to company personnel. It was sent to over 50,000 people outside the company. Embarrassing to say the least.
