Current Employee - Assistant Manager in Montreal, QC (Canada)

I have been working at IATA full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Better pay, travel facilities, other benefits. Many in the industry still regard the Association as influential

Cons

No Industry expertise. Senior Management not knowledgeable. A lot was expected of the new DG but nothing much has changed except the jargon and rhetoric. Too many undeserving people have had their jobs protected under the project Blue Skies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Apparently IATA is going to rid itself of some its despicable past very soon, perhaps its time to reverse some of evil policies of that era. E.g. at the moment those who were fired in the past during IATA's numerous "purges" cannot be re-employed. This should be changed immediately. Some of them may still qualify for existing or forthcoming job vacancies (whether they would want to come back or not may be another issue) and should be allowed to apply. Some of the lost industry expertise could thus be brought back.

    I worked at IATA part-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Opportunity for students that are still in university and new grads; opportunity to work inside a major organization and gain a lot of knowledge of the air transport industry.

    Cons

    As soon as you are done an internship they can easily forget about you; they hire a lot of interns because they are a lot "cheaper" than full-time permanent employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Give for chance for interns to grow in the company.

    I worked at IATA full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The salary package and benefits are generally good. Especially for junior staff the salaries are often way above market.
    There are many nice and dedicated people

    Cons

    The senior management rules by fear... Numerous restructurings followed by recruitment campaigns that gives the impression that no planning or mid/long-term strategy is in place. If you think about the millions wasted.. Employees are over-worked and management shows no respect what so ever to the work-life balance of the employees. You don't want to work 12-14 hours per day? Well off you go...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Lets hope that with the arrival of Tony Tyler things will change.. He seems much more human than the previous DG... But without making some additional changes at the senior management level, not sure he will get there...
