Gate Gourmet is a good place to know how bad things can get

IT Consultant (Former Employee)
Reston, VA

I worked at Gate Gourmet

ProsAlways something changing, never boring since the airline industry drives Gate Gourmet's main business lines

ConsInternational travel was expected but rarely happened. People often quit due to the unfair pressures and management's KITA methodology (Kick In The Ass) which resulted in people being frustrated, working long hours and being told to always have their phone on and their email up.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe more honest and upfront with teams, be strategic and make long term internal investments rather than short-sighted quick cost cutting measures. Management often skewed the results of procurement contracts in order to facilitate deals

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
