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

    Pros

    Even though the computer system used by the company is a bit historical (the IBM AS/400), it's software serves many reputable aviation companies helping them with revenue and aircraft maintenance. The software is great and very comprehensible.

    Cons

    The company was a bit slow to convert over to online help from printed help manuals, but that is it.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees - they are generally there to do a good job for you.

    I worked at IATA as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    Office culture, benefits, compensation. Challenging and a place to develop basic aviation knowledge. Outgoing environment w/great management support. Benefits and compensation in comparison to other firms.

    Cons

    Understaffed requiring work over load. Organization structure diff from other big operating firms. Requires more mentorship opportunities with new interns - they could be valuable resources and candidates for full-time employment

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

    Pros

    -Amazing colleagues in all of the global IATA offices
    -Ease of transferring from one office to another
    -Considerable knowledge to be gained in all aspects of the aviation industry
    -Great work -life balance
    -IATA training courses provided to employees at a significant discount

    Cons

    Previously, many complaints regarding employment at IATA were due to a very bureaucratic style of management that was largely due to the management in place. Since assignment of the new Director General things have taken a turn for the better. The new style of management empowers employees and is not only transparent to employees but also to its main stakeholders.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue the path that Tony Tyler has set in place
