    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities to work on projects, seeing as the company will restructure again.

    Cons

    Outlook for employment is bleak, they say they're adding jobs, but it's almost all in their subsidiaries, not in the core-group. Also, if you're an intern, chances are you will not get an offer, even if your performance is outstanding.

    Pros

    colleagues enabled me to work self-reliant, many interesting issues for corporate communications, acceptable working hours, possible to switch departments, company is impressive and fascinating because of the sector

    Cons

    dull coordination because of too many hierarchical levels, difficult to get a permanent position because of the cost-cutting measures, many employees are too old for their tasks (social media done by people that don't use it privately)

    Advice to Management

    create more flexibility in coordination processes

    Pros

    You get excellent benefits if you are keen on travelling, good work/life balance.

    Cons

    Very difficult to go up the career ladder due to limited prospects. This is an industry you go to work if you are passionate about travelling but not to earn a lot of money.

    Pros

    very good training programs, "Lufthansa family" feel with the colleagues, good flying benefits, especially for the staff based in Germany

    Cons

    Very poor pay, therefore a big turnover. The discounted tickets are quite challenging to use, as they are on a stand by basis. Once you are a passenger, the flight personnel give you hard times by trying to discriminate you. It really does happen a lot!
