    They want you to work 7 days a week and then yell at you in conference calls.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.

    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.

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

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

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

    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 ManagementAdvice

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

    Pros

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

    Unstructured, understaffed, underpaid. They don't offer sufficient training for new employees at all the locations and they expect you they make miracles happens without that proper training.

    Dying industry provides few growth opportunities amid huge cutbacks

    I worked at LSG Sky Chefs

    Pros

    Cubicles are nice and computers are up to date. People are pleasant for the most part. Top management is trying to make things better, but it is difficult for them to do that with so many cutbacks.

    Cons

    Even though it is a large corporation, professionalism is lacking. There is no training for managers on how to be more effective and no training is provided for employees. There are few employee activities and those that exist are usually focused on asking employees to donate to charities. No raises were given to employees for about 10 years so it is difficult to give when you are not receiving.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay more attention to what is going on in the departments. Interview at least one employee per week to ask what improvements can be made. Don't wait until the exit interview.
