    Pros

    Good welfare and competitive salaries.

    Cons

    Upper management is oblivious to the problems faced at the ground level. Interns are hired to clear backlogs from years ago.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have an exit interview in place for interns and take it seriously.

    I worked at IATA as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Vacations (12.5 days every 6 months), very decent coffee machines.

    Cons

    If you do not work in a department with a good revenue / budget then you are not very likely to stay after your internship. Your position will be re-posted in the careers website even before you are gone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    After several months of training and specialization many interns are let go given that permanent employees are more expensive to hire. However, one fully functional intern (potential permanent employee) can easily do the job of two new hired interns.

    Pros

    very multicultural, people are nice and friendly, many conferences happening, chance to build a network of professionals, as an intern they give you a lot of responsibilities, which is a great learning experience

    Cons

    salary too low, no room for career development, lots of politics happening behind the scene, people are not necessarily the best fit for their positions. I met people with no expertise who were having managerial positions.

    I have been working at IATA full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great intrenational environment, culturally diverse, lots of travel, good salary and great benefits. It is a good environment to spend 3 to 5 years and move on.

    Cons

    Lack of opportunities for professional development since senior management doesn't want to invest in employees and courses. Senior management incompetent and takes credit for all the achievements. No salary increases. Working atmosphere is pretty bad and moral low. New DG didn't do lots of changes (made lots of promises though).

    Former Employee - Intern, IATA Distance Learning Support in Montreal, QC (Canada)

    I worked at IATA part-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Opportunity for students that are still in university and new grads; opportunity to work inside a major organization and gain a lot of knowledge of the air transport industry.

    Cons

    As soon as you are done an internship they can easily forget about you; they hire a lot of interns because they are a lot "cheaper" than full-time permanent employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give for chance for interns to grow in the company.
