    Pros

    You just can't get the jet fuel out of your blood. Out of all the big 5 airlines, Continental is the best, but has a ways to go to be equatible to middle management.

    Cons

    Over 10 years since a pay increase, in fact it has decreased. Benefits are starting to disappear, and the Dignity is certainly on the downside. I don't think our executives listen to employees ideas anymore. They have their own ideas and be damned the employees ideas.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the ideas given by employees. In our cabin since we are steadfast on the checked bag policy we must figure out something about pillows and blankets.
    The ideal would be to eliminate these special charges and separate ourselves from the rest of the pack. We are losing bookings to Southwest due to this in markets we compete. People are actually OK with making stops and changes of planes to keep from paying added fees. It creates ill will with our passengers and on full flights our passengers are fighting each other for overhead space.

    Pros

    Flight benefits are great if you can get on a flight and not bothered by standby. CO also offers benefits to domestic partners.

    Cons

    Low pay versus similar jobs on the market and there is little opportunity for career advancement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior management should be required to take more courses on leadership and mentoring. Many in senior management roles have the work skills but not the people skills.
