Fair experience but has the potential to be something very special.

I have been working at United Airlines full-time (more than 8 years)

Pros

Flying benefits of course (when you can get on the plane)

Cons

Long hours, low salary compared to those in same or similar positions in the company, merger madness, low morale, rampant negativity, and lack of direction from the top.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Don't forget the employees are actually people with lives, families, goals, and feelings. The employees matter just as much as the bottom line.

    Since our merger with Continental, the company has gone downhill.

    Pros

    I like meeting new people from all over the world. Flight benefits aren't bad if you can actually get on a flight.

    Cons

    Working for a company that doesn't seem to care anymore. It hasn't been United since the merger. Everything is Continental with United pasted over it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop taking so much money from the company!

    Travel benefits not worth the hassle

    Pros

    Transportation is an interesting field, and airlines are an important piece of the global transportation network, so the work is interesting. The flight benefits allow you to travel to cool places for free (if you can get a seat).

    Cons

    The merger with CO has been an overwhelming disappointment. Poorly executed from the beginning, even after several years there are readily apparent divisions within the company between the two sides. Systems integration continues to be an ongoing disaster. Attempting to get things done across different workgroups is a frustrating exercise, many senior leaders seem to be more concerned with the path that absolves them from any accountability rather than pursuing the correct strategy. Flight load factors continue to rise and over the years it has become much more difficult to use the flight benefits. If you like spending hours at the airport on edge staring at the standby list, then this is the job for you.
