I have been working at United Airlines

Pros

Once merged, will be the biggest airline... lot's of places to travel to... the FA position offers flexibility in your days off... but the first few years of Reserve (on call) will be rough.

Cons

Merger process not going well... FA groups from the two sides are completely at odds with each other. Contract (work rules) and culture clash. Also, often a lack of respect by management which is only concerned with their bonuses and golden parachutes. Now that Tilton is out, we're halfway there... Smisek's performance is yet to be seen, but so far he's not proving to be much different than Tilton.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

FA's deserve a contract NOW. As of 9/01/11 it's over 600 days without a new contract. If mgt wants to achieve the "synergies" this merger was supposed to provide they need to expedite the negotiations and offer the FA's a contract they DESERVE.

    I worked at United Airlines

    Pros

    Travel benefits are one of the only good reasons to work for UAL. The work is potentially interesting and fulfilling.

    Cons

    management was more interested in their own individual performance than that of the unit or company as a whole. cooperation and coordination between work groups was difficult if not impossible in this workplace.
