    StarStarStarStarStar Current Senior Systems Engineer in Dallas, Texas

    The Profit-sharing of 10% for 2016 & 2017, plus the 9.5% dollar to dollar 401K matching, is incredible! Nothing bad to add.

    Pros: Matching 401k up to 9.3%, free flights, inexpensive insurance, amazing PTO accrual rates, Cons: Very limited scheduling flexibility for newer employees. Everything is seniority based making PTO requests difficult

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Employee in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma

    The benefits are the only reason why I stayed for so long. Free flights, free buddy passes, dollar for dollar 401k matching, Health insurance is through United. It’s amazing, only for full time employees though.

    StarStarStarStarStar Former Captain in Houston, Texas

    Health ins. was still lacking somewhat. Time off was amendable by how much work one was willing to give away. No comp time or personal days off.
