Pros

Nice building, OK benefits, work is interesting

Cons

Excessive Overtime, high management turnover

Advice to Management

Hire some qualified experienced management who believe in supporting their employees, vs kids off the street who are looking to enhance their resume so they can land their next job/gig.

    Pros

    A history of innovation in airline technologies.
    Exciting opportunities for working with different cultures and traveling to other countries!!
    Opportunities to work in different areas of the business
    Good cafeteria- has free range meat, etc.
    LEED certified building and other "green" initiatives

    Cons

    Your experience will be heavily dependent upon where you end up hence the title. There are some good groups and managers but there are some really bad, old school thinkers out there; true leaders are few and far between. If you work for one of those, you may be miserable. Do your due diligence with your potential manager and team to ensure you don't get stuck in a position you don't want to be in. Sadly the corporate culture reflects this in general.

    Generally, bad travel policies (e.g. coach to Europe and South America from headquarters).
    Rules in general are not consistently applied (some managers make up policies that apply to them and not you).
    Capacity in HDQ parking garage is insufficient.
    Seating is HDQ insufficient.
    Terrible corporate booking tool (gives limited options, blocks some airlines altogether, and is inflexible) and expense reporting tool (difficult to use).
    Pay is better than an airline but not by much.
    Products are often late and customers often unhappy
    Do your due diligence on this company (i.e. research news, litigation) and see if you want to work here.

    Advice to Management

    Develop leaders not old school managers. Clean house of the bad apples. Act as a business partner towards your customers.

    Pros

    Once you get in it's almost impossible to get out. People stay with this company for 10, 15, 20, even 30+ years. It has been very stable environment. The work conditions are good and people are knowledgeable and professional. Good work/life balance

    Cons

    Hard to advance a career. Not many opportunities to get promoted.
