IATA: Good on paper: terrible in practice. An overhaul is long overdue!

I have been working at IATA

Pros

Good benefits (healthcare, vacation/time off) and networking opportunity. The people are dedicated even though they often feel resentment toward the company and its "ways."

Cons

Inconsistent promotion standards. Hypocrytical when applying mission/vision statements. They expect 100% dedication without reciprocation. Salaries are below average when compared to similar positions in other companies. No true leadership vision and no planning.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Set an attainable vision for the company and develop a plan to achieve it. Treat employees fairly. A title does not guarantee competency. Don't be so scared to get rid of the incompetent people in the company. Shifting them to other positions does not cure the problem.

    I have been working at IATA as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    - lots of senior staff with a broad experience
    - very good salary for an intern
    - good brand for your CV

    Cons

    - very fixed employment structure, tough to move between departments
    - lower level staff have less room for development
    - Lack of incentives for staff to perform, IATA is a non-profit organizations that gets easy money. There is therefore little incentive to create greater efficiency within the company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a structure that is less 'top heavy', introduce commercial incentives to create a more effective operational structure.

    international company with multi-cultural staff. Great colleagues and professionals. People are passionate for the industry. An interesting experience in a different non-profit organization where sales and marketing drive the business

    Management by fear. Weird atmosphere. People were treated poorly. Only a chosen few could beneficiate to some training or any other treatment, such as bonus or awards.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice
