Pros

Traveling the world with crazy, fun and truly wonderful people. I had lots of time off and worked when I wanted, most of the time.

Cons

Being away from my family for important events some of the time. Unhealthy hours and stress on your mind and body. Terrorism. Company imposed work rules that rob us of all the reasons that we took the job in the first place.

Advice to Management

Corporate greed may bring this airline down. There are two ways to manage, one is with an iron fist seeing employees as #'s and an expense. One way is to consider them as human beings, and assets. Guess which one this airline chose from day one? I have been with this airline for 22yrs and it's management has always had the Motto " Divide and conquer" because if we had ever united all work groups. they would surely lose.

    Pros

    Great work environment - support & help Flight benefits!! Encourage internal hiring New opportunities opening due to bankruptcy

    Cons

    Very low salary - below peers & industry High attrition creating gaps in productivity Quality of management subpar

    Advice to Management

    Senior management needs to have a strong vision and act on it ASAP. Make sure to drive the company's mission throughout every level of the organization. Too many disgruntled employees. Management has to do a better job of retainning those employees in-line with the company's objectives and seperating from those that are not.
