    Pros

    Overtime often, co workers are nice.

    Cons

    Utility department is very unsanitary. Some carts sit for a week before they're cleaned. Breaks are very short

    I worked at LSG Sky Chefs full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Free lunches are provided, but they are not always edible. The employee base is good to work with and very diverse.

    Cons

    They do not allow you to staff up to the level that will make you productive and then blame you for the failures. They have a culture of pointing fingers to blame other departments to the point of making up excuses for failures.

    Advice to Management

    Don't do it. It pays good, and the benefits are ok, but you will have no time for family or anything else and will live at work trying to fix other peoples departments to make yours run better.

    I worked at LSG Sky Chefs full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    free food, sometimes a laid back place to work at, environment could be fun when the big wigs aren't walking the floor. getting to work around planes after passing the classes to get your AOA badge.

    Cons

    they overwork you. They will put you in one position but have you doing different position for low pay. you can easily be blamed for the smallest things and people are out to lookout for themselves. They'll be quick to throw you to the wolves so they won't get in trouble or fired for their mistake.

    Advice to Management

    show value to your workers. don't overlook their potential because they don't fit into your budget plans or because you show favoritism to other co-workers.

    I worked at LSG Sky Chefs full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Learned some thing about the airline business.

    Cons

    The pay was low and the work hour was long. The management was rude. Felt like I was treated as a object. By the time I left the company, most people who were hired at the same time also left. Some managers left too. Like the other one said the turn over rate was high in this company. Not recommend to work there.

    Pros

    Company outlook is very stable. Food is great.

    Cons

    Always feel behind the 8 ball. Never get the chance to enjoy any of the accomplishments before next crisis arrives.

    Advice to Management

    Suport your staff. Give them the resources not just promises.

    Pros

    The benefits are not bad.

    Cons

    Really long hours and rude people. Hostile working environment. Like other people said the HR is for managers not for the employees. High turnover rate for both managers and employees.

    I worked at LSG Sky Chefs full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    exciting challenging career opportunities, but long hours. Depending on position pay is good or fair. If you like the airlines industry then these are great jobs.

    Cons

    upper and mid management have issues when relating to employees. HR is there for the company not the employees. They could really excel and be a top company if they would get their systems under control, and revise their entire management style. There is little or no training for new hires. Prepare to spend a lot of time fire fighting. They tend to rotate CEO's often.. 3-5 year tenures.

    Advice to Management

    Wake up. You have very taltented employees who are very loyal but you will loose you best if practices do not change

    Strong employee loyalty, free lunch and breakfast for the employees. free parking, good benefits for full-time employees
