    I worked at Virgin America part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The people are great! It was my first time in the airlines industry the schedules are really flexible, great training, huge on TEAM! Great benefit incentives

    Cons

    Upper Management are NOT experienced, being at the airports and being the part of the front lines was pretty rough, many times In-flight was pretty rude to GSTs and consistently complaining, Beware in the industry that lots of people are two-faced, and situations which occurred at stations was not really solved properly due to favoritism. Constantly promoting inside growth but always hiring from outside company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs more training! Give more opportunity to people inside the company and promote more instead of hiring outside. Understand and react on behaviors in stations cause it can become bigger if left alone.

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

    Pros

    The highs are very high--some exceptionally talented and ambitious teammates, exciting events and promotions, and an inspiring product that's providing a meaningful alternative in a broken industry.

    Cons

    Because jobs are so coveted, there isn't much of an incentive for leadership to promote, reward, or in some cases, adequately appreciate the hard-working talent they employ.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    A "cool" job can only be its own reward for so long. Allow your strongest employees room to grow and promote them before they find another employer more willing to reward their talents and hard work.
