    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at EL AL full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Amazingly discounted flights Social Benefits on a big scale Shuttle transportation to work from a significant radius of places. Mess hall.

    Cons

    1970s thinking in personnel management. Heavily afflicted by incompetent Unions, thinking about themselves first and company betterment second. You cannot fire practically anyone who is in the Union! Meaning, incompetent frustrated employees are shuffled around to positions they don;t like and don't want but obliged to accept, since they have no choice. They interfere with the work of a lot of hard-working and motivated younger employees.

    Advice to Management

    They know exactly what to do, this is why there is a deadlock in the negotiations with the Unions for 3rd year straight.
