    Overworked & Underpaid

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Proscolleagues are a good group of people

    ConsPoor work-life balance, if salaried, be willing & committed to putting the company first otherwise you suffer the consequences if only working 45 hours regardless of your family situation or health. Limitless number of hours. Too much work & not enough people due to staff reductions.
    Directors constantly pushing their workload down to staff who is already overloaded.
    Salaries are well below industry average
    flight privileges are not free.
    No room for advancement unless an EU citizen.
    .

    Advice to Senior ManagementAssets are not only the airplanes but the people. Treat the employees fairly. Most importantly train the Directors before sending incompetent individuals to other countries in leadership roles, and ensure these so-called leaders are aware of labors laws in the country. The company waste time/money developing Mission statements yet never follow thru on their ideas. Ask any manager, and they can not describe the current Mission.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Success of operations strongly tied to team work.

    Administrative and Budget Assistant (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsAmple opportunities for growth and professional development. The employee quickly understands the importance of team work and, building and maintaining a healthy relationship with internal and external clients. For those who like travelling, might also be a good place of employment.

    ConsThe industry is unfornately undergoing few restructurations. Opportunities for advancement are becoming scarce, thereby affecting employees morale: High turnover, and high operating costs.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInvest in human capital, you are in a service industry.

    Did not like working here

    Passenger Service Agent (Former Employee) Jamaica, NY

    ProsGreat coworkers. Some flight benefits. There were a couple good managers (leaders, yet kind and understanding). Nice uniforms.

    ConsLate hours (past midnight) if you're working at the boarding gates.
    Micromanagers, catty managers, vindictive managers.
    No buddy passes.
    Low pay, especially considering that you're working and living in NYC, and small raises (25 cents here, 10 cents there).
    Low possibility of advancement.
    Can encounter some rude and stuck-up flight attendants.

    long drive without water

    Financial Analyst (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsFree airline tickets
    Great location in the City
    No need being scared of getting fired (it's almost part of the job description that you will get fired)

    ConsPoor management
    All decisions centralized in Paris
    Promotion are granted based on friendship instead of merit
    Too many people doing the same thing

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop playing tag with unions and make a bold move for once.
    Management losses are taxpayers losses. No need to throw good money after bad every single year

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
