    I have been working at Virgin America part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    From training to actually working there, the experience has been amazing all along the way. The company culture follows the Richard Branson mindset: "Screw it, Let's do it." They are really the leader in the industry and are constantly innovating. The company cares about its teammates, guests, and the experience more than money. There are also plenty of opportunities for movement and improvement in the company.

    Cons

    Low pay but the companies provides plenty of benefits throughout the experience, from the little things like food vouchers to paid travel, training, and stipends. The company is still growing, however. It should get even better.

    IPO has already had a few negative effects on some teammates such as the in-flight.

An offspring of Sir Richard Branson's Virgin Group, Virgin America took flight just as high fuel prices and a recession rocked the airline industry. In 2007 the carrier launched service from San Francisco to Los Angeles and New York, and now serves more than a dozen destinations in the US as well as Canada and Mexico with a fleet of 25-plus Airbus A320 jets.
