    Pros

    I was here very short period. Very nice staff. Equipment was good. Hours were manageable. Management very professional. Liked living in London.

    Cons

    Limited career opportunities and benefits. And had a hard time scheduling staff travel time. Training Info was ok. Others are better.

    An excellent airline but doomed to failure; caught between a hostile macro economic environment and unwilling owners.

    Pros

    Colleagues are superb.
    Free sharing of information.
    No real politics between departments.
    Beautiful setting to work in.

    Cons

    Outdated IT infrastructure.
    No public transport.
    Job prospects in Derby are very uncertain, most operation looks to be relocated to London following the IAG deal.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in the Head Office infrastructure..

    Pros

    Great teamwork ( excluding executives)
    Freedom to develop
    Sense of inclusion in different departments if you wanted it

    Cons

    New management team in 2008 destroyed morale
    While vision may have been good for the business, it was never communicated well
    Superiority complex of new management and the attitude that their way was the best and only way
    Lack of understanding at head office of the complexities involved in international operation, just because an approach works in UK does not mean that it will work everywhere

    Advice to Management

    Adapt to what is needed in all markets and do what it takes to bridge the gap between goal and reality.
    Empower teams to do what needs to be done and not wrap everything up in endless decision making and then make a final mad dash to the finish line
