    Pros

    This place will always keep you moving and make you face challenges you never could believe to be possible. If you are looking for somewhere that will keep you thinking non stop this is the place to go.

    Cons

    They do not have any real training. You are basically thrown in and left with a, "sink or swim", mentality.

    I have been working at LSG Sky Chefs full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    -Somewhat challenging projects.
    -Close to home

    Cons

    -The whole system is dysfunctional. People who are not educated (regular manufacturing staff) is treated terribly with no regard for their feelings.
    -People are never recognized unless you are a "teacher's pet".
    -Management believes they are better than everyone. No focus on developing the manufacturing staff, or for that matter any other folks even other managers.
    -Incredibly bad work-life balance. I remember I worked well over 16 hours everyday.
    -Absolutely no way to move up. If you want to learn more, you get shut down quickly.
    -Absolutely no company culture and no values/vision to align employees to. Just absolutely a mess.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop treating people so terribly. Start organizing the business, and restructure it if you have to. You site management is somewhat sketchy and very unreliable. No wonder LSG is gonna go out of business soon.

    I worked at LSG Sky Chefs

    Pros

    If you have no where else to work

    Cons

    Long hours, low pay. Very unfriendly working environment and managers yelled and screamed at employees. Very high turnover rate. This company is always hiring because people are quitting all the time. Worst company that I ever worked for.

    Pros

    getting experience that can relate to a future employer

    Cons

    everything; the senior management has NO CLUE what they are doing and are driving the NY market into the ground; they don't care about you as a person; it is a thankless company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Remove just about everyone from the NY Market and put in people that have a personality, that can relate to their employees and who care if the business does well or not.

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits and plenty hours of overtime available. Hourly employees do their best under trying circumstances.

    Cons

    Upper management relies on being heavy handed to get their point across. Too much yelling and screaming from upper management down to lower levels.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your people, they know how to get the job done.

    Pros

    You might get the pay you are looking for, but you will earn every penny and more no a good company,

    Cons

    Hourly employees are not treated with respect Senior Management
    Front line management is treated even worse by Senior Leadership
    The company has not given pay increases in over 7 years
    Hi pressure business with a bunch of messed up airlines for customers that have a bunch of people justifying their jobs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Walter Gehl is a good guy, the problem in the US is Sondra Lehman, and Jeff Miller, neither of the have any industry experience, they know nothing about food service, customer service and could careless about taking care of people at any level, its all a show with now substance.

    Pros

    Some good people who want to do the right things.

    Short term mentality. The airline industry is imploding and LSG will go with it. Poor senior management in the C-Suite. Poor leadership all around. Company is living in fear daily and it shows. Negative work environment.
