Pros

Good benefits
Pay is below average

Cons

Financially tough industry and increasing cost of fuel makes it hard to be profitable.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

search for new ways to improve customer experience and achieve profitability.

UAL is a great company in a difficult industry, however new and innovative ways of serving customers will help.

    Cons

    No real work/life balance even though the technology is available for work from home etc.

    Seems to be more turnover lately

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more open to change and focus on work/life balance which will help with employee retention.

    Pros

    The travel benefits place an airline job in a different class of work place benefits. It is difficult to place a value on what the travel benefits are worth.

    Cons

    The Headquarters is overstaffed, especially after the merger. There are many airline "lifers" in mid-upper management who function as "yes men, or yes women" because they are not brave enough to push the limits. There is no innovation going on at United.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire mid-upper management from outside of the company and outside of the industry. New blood and thinking are needed to make lasting change at this company.
