    I have been working at Air India full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Relaxed job ( barely 3 hrs) in a normal day in hangar out of 10 hours duty shift, easy pass on responsibility(no individual responsibility), wider range of fleets, stress free work life, good benefits.

    Cons

    Unmaintained infrastructure (offices, cafeteria, hangar), salary issues, highly unproductive, unmotivated working environment, mismanagement, wastage of resources, no timely promotions.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Reduce over employment (un necessary staff), focus on optimum utilization, reduce mismanagement, upgrade outdated infrastructure .
    Finally my request to management is to please list this debt ridden company publicly or privatize it. The management no matter how serious can handle it due to the interference from unions, political parties.
