    I worked at Gate Gourmet

    Pros

    Competitive pay. Depending on the job, some flexibility and opportunity for growth. Unique work experience.

    Cons

    Management not always open to ideas. Certain members of management can be belittling in their conversation (though their intention is good).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take care of your employees. Promote a culture where team members who actually do the job can share their ideas on making the work process more efficient.

    I have been working at Gate Gourmet full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    This is a real-time business. The airline industry as a whole is all based in real-time, decisions you make in a meeting today will be rolled out in the units across the country overnight.
    This pace brings out people's true colors, if you have the skills, knowledge and competency to get the job done, you will get promoted before you get a raise. Its just that kind of industry.
    You will get 18 months worth of experience in 6 months' time. You will also get 18 months worth of wins/losses, which is why people get promoted quickly or wash out quickly.
    This place is not for the faint of heart, its for the champions.

    Cons

    Supporting a 24-hour operation at airports means you might have to come to work on days where schools are out for snow.
    Medical benefits are competitive, but the focus here is on pay and opportunity. If you want great benefits at you might want to go work for a government and sacrifice career growth and your paycheck.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is a difficult industry, but you guys make it fun. Lets have more office events, sports related and off site.

    Pros

    With a little intelligence you can be a superstar at the is company. The pay is okay if you are educated and negotiate well

    Cons

    Poor management. Bonus program is a joke never gets paid out. Profit sharing for employees is there but not paid

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you are looking for a Frontline employee job it is good and the work is not too difficult. As a leader steer clear of this company

    Pros

    Learn all you can from as many managers as you can, nothing really formal in place in terms of a template.
    Promotions take time, at times are subjective, but not impossible.

    Cons

    You are in control of your own growth, benefits are bare bone, and no salary increases have been in place in years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Recognize, train and acknowledge employees who really move the numbers and get the job done, not just the new hires.

    Pros

    If you like fast paced this is the place for you, however with the ever changing challenges comes stress! Be careful what you ask for!!

    Cons

    There is a culture of no control so a lot of long time employees are jaded. The company has potential but there needs to be an investment in training and value put on the employee.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop being so negative and develop your employees, give people the tools they need to be successful.
