    I have been working at Aegean Air full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    With hard work & professional manners, you get to change department and that gives you broader experience.
    You get paid on time.
    Great benefits on travelling.
    Really pleasant facilities too.
    More than ok for Greece.

    Cons

    Collaboration between departments and within teams can be challenging.
    Low payment and poor training system.
    Since there's no training and guidance, it's no wonder it's difficult for one to grow professionally.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    To cultivate the feeling among the staff that every single person is unique and important part of the chain. Some bonus as a reward would help towards that direction.

    I worked at Aegean Air full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Your (ever decreasing) salary is at least paid on time.

    Cons

    - You are expected to do work that is in addition to what you were hired for.
    - Any additional jobs you are assigned are not paid extra.
    - You work rotating shifts every 12 hours (round the clock) because departments are under-staffed.
    - You work holidays, weekends etc.
    - If you live far from the airport area be prepared to spend an extra 2 hours minimum getting there and back home. That means 8+ hours of full time work and 2+ hours commuting = minimum 10+ hours of your day.
    - The company loves statistics! You are just a number.
    - There is no hope of advancement or getting a promotion unless you are in the magic circle of management "favorites".
    - The "friendly" colleague environment in truth is just a show (very few exceptions to this unfortunately).
    - In many cases, management and supervisors know less than agents, but have somehow qualified for that position.
    - In the name of profit, no sacrifice is too big. You will be gone in the blink of an eye if it means the company saves a few euros. This is quite ironic when you consider the money the company spends on business dinners, events etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    What's the point? You will get a condescending nod and be brushed off. Advice to the management is like knocking a deaf person's door!

    I worked at Aegean Air

    Pros

    Extremely friendly coworkers and managers, very fun and supportive environment, managers are very family-friendly, very easy to balance work and family, great flight benefits

    Cons

    Upward mobility is limited, work can be a little static and repetitive, compensation is not spectacular, the airline business is not very lucrative in recent years

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would urge management to set higher goals and to be more daring and proactive in their bid to expand the business and better the company.
