    Pros

    -Chance to develop your career and experience across a diversity of organisational functions (customer services, engineering, finance, marketing, IT, operations).
    -Staff travel is good if you pick your dates of travel and destinations wisely (i.e don't expect to breeze onto a flight to Orlando/Barbados in peak season).
    -Good work life balance compared with some companies.
    -A truly fascinating industry. Still learning after many, many years. Some great people to work with across a diversity of departments.

    Cons

    -Unless you make it well up what is becoming an increasingly flat structure (so there is a lot of competition for middle/senior mgmt roles), the money is average to reasonable at best. If you want to be rich quickly, you're probably looking in the wrong place.
    -Can be a bit bureaucratic at times.
    -A very cyclic industry. Aviation is normally first into any downturn, so pick your moment to make your move.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    -Think strategically. Too much evidence of trying to keep the bean counters happy, and not enough focus on the customer. You can't keep cutting costs and expect to be able to sustain a high quality product.
