    Pros

    Market leader in what is a fairly niche business of aircraft leasing. Team of very professional folks. Great medical / dental benefits.

    Cons

    Many integration issues following the acquisitions by AerCap. Potential case study for what-not-to-do in an acquisitions by a smaller acquirer of a larger target company. Work life balance is not great. There may be limited career growth in certain departments.

    Pros

    They pay very well, give staff the flexibility to work without micromanagement, everyone is friendly and cheerful. Gym on the premises. Catering, free drinks very people focused company.

    Cons

    The company is in the process of a buyout. Big changes are ahead

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Retain most of the ILFC staff. They have been in the industry for many years and know what they are doing.

    Pros

    The benefits and location (Century City) are as good as it gets and the people are very well educated and provide interesting perspectives. It's a niche industry which I enjoy thoroughly and ILFC is that big fish in the small pond. Not to mention, there is a company gym for employee use only and the offices are absolutely gorgeous.

    Cons

    Depending on the department there can be some long hours but most feel appropriately compensated. There has been a lot of change for the company over the past few years with change in management and now possibly change in ownership which will most likely be a 'Pro' but sometimes people fear the unknown.

    I have been working at Ilfc

    Pros

    The people here are really great to work with. Henri is a great CEO. Excellent benefits. Fun place to spend the majority of your day. It's one big family.

    Cons

    HR has definitely gone downhill. Blatantly favors management over rest of employees. This company is the epitome of 'dangling the carrot' promotions wise. Small bonuses, low incentives to have work product above average.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote and recognize the good workers. And taking the admin staff out for cocktails once a year instead of pay raises that are much deserved doesn't cut it.

    Pros

    -not a lot of dead weight - people here are sharp and work hard

    - Opportunity varies by department

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I think the recent changes over the past couple of years are putting ILFC on the right path

    Pros

    great people, benefits, team....everyone is willing to work with you in getting to know the industry. a/c leasing is such a unique business that many people may think you work for the CIA b/c not many people have heard of it or know what we do...also, you eat a LOT here. there are many meetings, and the lunches are always FAB.

    Cons

    there is a culture of seniority.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    none...I don't think i have enough experience here to give any advice.

    I worked at Ilfc

    Pros

    I really liked most of the people I worked with at ILFC. The offices were great, and there were nice perks like frequent catered lunch meetings, a beautiful private gym, secure free parking, nice holiday parties with fun prizes like plane tickets, bonuses, great insurance benefits, fun offsites, good location near the mall, so lots of options for lunch, a weekly farmer's market across the street, etc. I felt that I was very fairly compensated for my work.

    Cons

    As of the time I left, I felt that it was somewhat of a boys' club (especially the marketing deparment). Longevity was sometimes rewarded more than merit. A lot of things have changed at the company over the last four years, so this review doesn't necessarily reflect the current company.
