    Pros

    -Flight benefits -Flexible scheduling -Coworkers are like family

    Cons

    -Pay is subpar, you can be there for years and still be poverty level -No work life balance, say goodbye to having free nights and weekends -No room for advancement. This is a job, not a career. Management plays a constant game of musical chairs and moves all over the country, but lower level workers are never promoted. Hard work is not encouraged, and will be ostracized. This is a stagnant company with complacent individuals. Great if you're looking for a job, particularly entry-level, but if you have any intention of bettering yourself, get out as quickly as possible.

    I worked at AirTran Holdings full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Company appreciates hard work, determination, and attention to detail.

    Cons

    Very unpredictable future and job security.

    Advice to Management

    Pay closer attention to market trends and customer needs. A lot of frequent travelers were often happy with your services, but would sometimes travel with other means if more cost effective. Also, revision of off peak revenue periods in the year and action towards those could have resulted in a most efficient operation, and could have been a better revenue generating stations.

    Pros

    Plenty of room for advancement. The benefits of working for an airline helps when you want to have a cheap vacation. It helps with air and hotel costs.

    Cons

    The salary is mediocre. When you are due your review they kind of procrastinate when it comes to completing them.

    Advice to Management

    In my department the communication is excellent, but from what I hear in other the department the management do not communicate with the employees at all. People skills needs to be re-evaluated when they hire some of these managers.
