    Pros

    The schedule is flexible which is a great thing for millennial's, also there is so much experience in the airline catering business that you can learn so much in a short amount of time. The last thing is the company is a global company which provides great opportunity for global interactions.

    Cons

    The only con I came across while working here was that the talent is so elite that they can teach the beginning steps of learning how to use systems or resources. There also needs to be more significance in the education of their people, while they are great at what they do they cant grow holistically to benefit the company.

    Pros

    Ever-changing business, cross-functional project opportunities, growing into areas outside core business of airline catering, good people who want to do good work.

    Cons

    Many people look for stability in an employer - this is not the place for them. If a person likes action, constant change, and can handle working for a company closely tied to the constantly-fluctuating airline industry, the experience gained will be invaluable.

    Pros

    This truly is the most "family-like" environment I have ever worked in. The people are what make this a great place to work. Management does a good job of communicating what is going on with the company every month. Flexible work schedules are available offering work from home and/or differing start times.

    Cons

    The downside of working at LSG is the dependence on the Airline industry and the volatility involved there. Fuel costs and the economy impact people flying and if people are not flying, then the airlines are looking at ways to cut costs. That has caused a history of layoffs at the company and really hangs over the heads of employees during difficult times.

    Advice to Management

    Compensation and Benefits are lagging for such a large, leading company in the industry. Back in the day of Flight Privileges you could get by with paying employees a little below market value. But now without that benefit, and the rise in costs, salaries need to increase. I know it is a difficult time for the company and industry, but it is also difficult for the employees with everything getting more and more expensive. Without good employees, the company will suffer. Keep the good employees and continue to diversify and develop vertical and horizontal markets around our core competencies.

    Pros

    company invests into its management staff It seeks bright sparks so if you're looking to have your ideas put into practice, this is great environment for such

    Cons

    The company performance is largely influenced by the airline industry which continues to face cost concerns. A lot of good effort in an operational centre can be wiped out by a new crisis. Current business model is a cost to airlines which suggests that the products continues to be stripped further and further translating into reduced revenues.

    Advice to Management

    The industry needs to drive the paradigm that was started by the 'low cost carriers which is to monetize inflight products and services. Charge for it but do it better than before. Consumers are happy to pay for an honest product - just look at the money people fork over for a cup of coffee.
