I like United and my job; take your negative attitude somewhere else.

Supervisor, Onboard Service (Current Employee)
San Francisco, CA

ProsThe ability to see the world when ever you want is by far one of the most unique value add benefits any employee could hope for. I've been to places for pleasure and business that most people can only dream of - thanks United.

ConsI think like many large corporations it's easy to feel like change doesn't come quick enough. Many employees hace strong ideas that sometimes have a tendency to feel unheard.

Advice to Senior ManagementTo the most senior executives...don't flaunt your bonuses. The company had only made a profit one year since 9/11. Lead form the top down, and dont take a huge salary while your front line feels like they are suffering.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
