    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee in Atlanta, GA

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

    Pros

    SITA allows constant opportunities for interaction with people from diverse nationalities and backgrounds and, if your position allows, travel opportunities across the globe. Lots of variety -- can be very exciting.

    Cons

    SITA has a complete lack of checks and balances in management positions and has had more than one issue with corruption from middle management on up through the C level ranks. This creates miserable fallout for everyone down the line. Corporate HQ is in Europe and they are often out of touch with what goes on in the Americas.
