I have been working at Allegiant Travel full-time for less than a year

Pros

Nice office.and living in Las Vegas is cool. Allegiant has a quirky way of doing things which makes each day different..

Cons

Below industry standards for pay and benefits even though they are one of the most profitable airlines in the US. The company goes "cheap" with everything. The software is prehistoric.
Middle management is deaf and blind which results in chronic understaffing and high turnover

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Allegiant is making good profits, share more of the wealth with the employees that make this possible.

    Pros

    Flight benefits are OK, when you can use them. With so little PTO, it doesn't allow for much usage of these benefits. Your friends and family will get more use out of them then you will. If you find enjoyment from being generous, and giving others the gift of travel, then this will be a perk for you. Overall, the pace of work is good, though, and it seems most are not pressured to work over their 40 hours a week. Another pro is the amount of exercise you'll get walking around the building searching for an open toilet when it's time to go.

    Cons

    At Headquarters, at least, the misfortune of working in IT means you are crammed in like sardines, working on desks 2x6 in rows, with no privacy or space. No cubicles here, and no productivity or ability to concentrate! N/C headphones aren't even much help here. Not to mention the building houses around 500 employees and only has 5 toilets and 5 urinals for guys, and 8 toilets for gals. Also, 2 weeks PTO sucks, and the health benefits are mediocre to poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The excuse of being a discount carrier will eventually wear thin with employees. They will continue to see wide profit margins, and increasing revenue, yet the workplace environment they must put up with on a daily basis stinks. Not to mention the mediocre benefits. Unfortunately it seems management is content on being a high turnover employer, with no care for employee loyalty. A little more investment in the people that actually turn the wheels that earn the profits will reap even greater profits, as less turnover results in less time and money training newcomers, right?
