    Current Employee - Airport Operations in Houston, TX

    Pros

    Used to be culture, coworkers, benefits,teamwork at all levels, pride in our service.

    Cons

    Now, loss of culture, lack of teamwork, no trust, management arrogance, condescending attitudes, no one listens.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    An old fashioned housecleaning at headquarters needs to happen. Smisek should have kept operations CO instead of finance.

    Current Employee - Flight Dispatcher  in  Houston, TX
    Current Employee - Flight Dispatcher in Houston, TX

    Pros

    Good benefits (pension + 401K match), Decent Salary, Nice Co-Workers, Decent Medical benefits, and a pretty good pay scale compared to the industry as a whole

    Cons

    Sometimes management seems to play favorites and promote people without actively posting that a job is available; workload can be kind of high depending upon the day/weather/etc.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you merger your company, don't give the company you're merging with every single thing they ask for if you're going to be the person who is in charge of the company once the merger is complete.
