    Pros

    Overall a good company to work for at the beginning, worked with great people who I learnt a lot from. Great perks such as travel etc....

    Cons

    Limited career progression was a massive factor as it seemed to be a case of you got a promotion on the basis of knowing someone

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lead by example

    Pros

    Small company, ready to innovate and adapt to change. Good CEO now, Christoph Mueller knows what he's doing and has turned the airline around.

    Cons

    Not too many really. Salary and benefits are excellent. My department is small so has friendly atmosphere. Seems to be a constant race to cut costs.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work with us not against us.

    I worked at Aer Lingus part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The company really does look after it's staff. It's well-run, and there are a lot of opportunities to make the roster work for you and have a life. Good flight discounts too.

    Cons

    You'll have to wait for somebody in senior management to die before you get a promotion. Employees are promoted based on longevity, not merit. The company is still being run as though it were a public entity

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Trust your employees. They are the lifeblood of the organisation. Bring somebody under 30 years of age into the management team. They might manage to shake things up a bit

    I worked at Aer Lingus

    Pros

    The people are friendly and for the most part easy to work with. If you "work to live rather than live to work" the clockin in-clocking out nature of the place will suit.

    Cons

    Advancement is slow with many people still doing the same jobs after many years. For me this is doesnt work and I had to move on to a more vibrant environment.

    No opinion of CEO
