I have been working at United Airlines full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good ability to try new things (the airline has many divisions so employees can get exposure to whatever type of business interests you) and management is supporting of developing talent; hours are great (corporate standard 8a-5p or 9a-6p); competitive salary; flight benefits; challenging and interesting airline industry; the cross-divisional nature of the work is tremendous -- never stuck in one spot/area without exposure to multiple divisions and/or impacting on-going projects.

Cons

Need to network to build your brand and be recognized within the company (fairly standard); desired opportunities subject to availability; can be cuts depending on economy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

There are some leaders who are really getting the job done and others who are not -- now that we are sufficiently post-merger would suggest holding those who are not more accountable for results.
