I worked at Virgin America full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

I had two unique job roles at VX and had an opportunity to get my hands dirty on a lot of projects and open myself up to a plethora of new opportunities. I had the opportunity to access experiences no one else would. It is a company that is growing and has so much potential, and the people are what also makes it a great place to work.

Cons

The reason I left was growth. I could not go above where I was positioned at the time and I really needed more money and growth.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Offer more promotions and increased salaries.

    I have been working at Virgin America full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Changing the guest experience to become America's favorite airline. Fun atmosphere, team oriented, and great brand recognition. Very young fleet of aircraft with all the high tech amenities that business travelers need.

    Cons

    We're still on the low side of the pay scale compared with our peers in the industry. Still need some work on consistency of applying work rules.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more transparent and consistent when applying work rules.
