    Pros

    Ha. Youve got to be kidding

    Cons

    Low and I mean low pay. Supervisor dont have knowledge. No common sense in how to delegate tasks. Great employees get all the work and slackers get an easy ride. No internal promotions, and no training. I feel sorry for new employees, they really dont know what they are signing up for. Supervisors tell and not show duties. Really bad company. There is no ladder to climb, so what is a knowledgable persons motivation in a company like this. Gate Gourmet is just an immigrant dump off slave factory site

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn how to hold everyone accountable. When you dump all your tasks on your "best" employees, it drains morale. Everyone should pull weight. Give people raises. 10 cents a year isnt equivalent to years of hard work. Show that there is a ladder to climb instead of feeding lies of growth. No reason for seasoned mployees to train newly hired supervisors with no clueof job.

    Pros

    Fast Paced workplace, work is never finished, always busy and time goes by very fast

    Cons

    Dulles - No Chance of Career advancement, The company hires from outside than promote internally unless you know someone onside. Top UNIT management has either no clue about the operation or do not care till its their job on the line, Long hours avg 70hrs/wk(but get paid for 42hrs only), Too many plans but no action. no one knows who owns what responsibility and are never accounted for anything. its just a matter of time before this company is crushed under its own weight.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Groom your employees and lower management for career advancement to retain them. when hiring please tell future employees that they will not get any raise or bonus soon.
