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

    Pros

    Great atmosphere to work in. Easy going, where juniors showed respect for people with experience. Open doors in its nascent stage.

    Cons

    Closed doors as the company grew. Personal fiefdoms not discouraged. Nepotism given the blind eye. Senior management would not hold their own with the Big Boss leading to huge waste of time and money all around.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Spend more time on the floor! Listen to the people. They probably know a little more of reality than those in closed offices.

    Pros

    Employees are very passionate, kind and always willing to help. Being service oriented highest levels of service quality are maintained.

    Cons

    The downfall led to employee discomfort and dissatisfaction not being paid for months. The situation wasnt handled well by the management keeping employees in the dark about the real situation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep employees aware of the real situation if you expect them to sail through the rough tides.
