United gives me great opportunities.

Supervisor - In Flight Service (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

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

Pros-We are evolving; creating a new brand, opportunities, and reaching new destinations with state-of-the art aircraft.
-Great employee benefits package and access to unique privileges and discounts.
-Fantastic recognition programs on company-wide basis.
-Love traveling? Go anywhere in the world.

Cons-Certain technology systems (employee and customer facing) need improvement/development.
-Ongoing labor negotiations distract co-workers from enjoying the job.

Advice to Senior Management-Continue to engage co-workers and review the leadership culture. In other words, survey the workforce on company culture. If necessary, take action with leaders that don't live up to the Working Together philosophy.
-Invest in stations that need facility improvements.
-Encourage cross-divisional job shadowing; allow co-workers to learn other parts of the business.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
