Unfortunately, most managers are unfit for a leadership position; they fail to realize the long term benefits of good morale and a full roster of experienced pilots. Often times their ego and arrogance deludes good decision making. The type of managers that think suggestions should go straight into the waste bin.
Greed is also a factor to some of these bad managers; to them, every dollar spent on a pilot (or any other employee) is potentially a dollar out of their own pocket. They care more about themselves rather than making the company the best it can be.
And before some smart-@ss manager makes a quip about how pilots always complain and don‘t understand the business dynamics... you are full of crap. There are a few companies in the helicopter industry that actually pay their employees very well and treat them like family. Companies that are proactive, rather than reactive and consult their employees on how to make the business better. Having worked for one of those companies, I promise you the employees there don’t complain. They end up being fiercely loyal to the company and those in charge. But if your employees are complaining, I suggest you look in a mirror and ask yourself why you are failing so miserably.
