Which would be better to work for?

I left Flex because I wasn't sure which way they were gonna go, and they couldn't give me any idea when I was gonna upgrade. (When I hired in I was told 6 to 8 months)
Funny thing is when I got to Netjets I was told upgrade was about 6 to 8 months, and that the contract was almost done and the pay was gonna get good.
I do like Netjets better, the fleet, and the schedule. I also came here because I thought it would be more stable. As everybody learns eventually in civil aviation, there are no garruntees.
The line pilots at both companies are great. The flying is cool and it actually appeals to me more then the airlines. (That lifestyle has sure changed over my civilian career).
Good luck to everyone
anotherwannabe said:So what is the current upgrade time at FlexJet? The airlinepilotpay.com says the most junior pilot hired was August 2005. How can it be that fast? Was that a street Captain? Why does it say "Ultra" in parentheses?
