    Current Employee - International Airline Professional in New York, NY

    I have been working at Lufthansa full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Good health benefits, supportive team, does not easily fire people, lots of lateral movement positions, job security is relatively good

    Cons

    Very German oriented, low salaries, company morale is low, no union, overly process-oriented, extremely bureaucratic, big company so things don't change easily, constant cost cutting measures, this position has a payback clause requiring you to stay for at least 2 years or "reimburse" the company for expenses. The amount varies but is generally under 10K or exempt in certain countries.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more international and less bureaucratic. Include your overseas employees in more company communication.

    Former Employee - Intern in Frankfurt am Main (Germany)
    Former Employee - Intern in Frankfurt am Main (Germany)

    I worked at Lufthansa as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Lufthansa offers good benefits and an awesome work life balance. You will not have to work long hours. You will have a lot of job security.

    Cons

    It is difficult to get promoted. There is a lot of bureocrazy and the pay is not very good. Average probably.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company has to be modernized!

    I have been working at Lufthansa (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Global working environment, friendly working atmosphere, nice colleagues, interesting tasks and projects, diverse topics to work on

    Cons

    extensive hierarchie driven communication, historic processes override new techniques and approaches, 80ies management style and methods, no differentiation between high- and low-performers, intransparent way of recruiting leaders and executives

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improve stronger differentiation of performing and non-performing staff and improve career paths for more employees (and not only the selected few)

    Former Employee - Manager in Frankfurt am Main (Germany)

    I worked at Lufthansa full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Cheap flights, even if on limited stand-by basis.

    Cons

    Lufthansa lacks a mission and vision to guide the employees in decision making. There is no innovation due a lack of learning organization culture. Lack of leadership. Strong blame culture.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management has too completely change the culture of the company. Focus on revenue instead of cost reduction. Focus on innovation rather than accountability.

    Pros

    Multinational company with German Brand meaning respect and value in job market. One of the leaders in Aviation industry.

    Cons

    Low salary, no increaments and rare bonus for employees. No carrier advancement or only if you are liked by bosses not due to your hard work but because of relegion, race and nationality. Emplyee benefits are different for employees in Germany and Europe than other parts of the world. No job securuty due to current situation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Should read what is written on the wall!
