    I have been working at LSG Sky Chefs full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    The schedule is flexible which is a great thing for millennial's, also there is so much experience in the airline catering business that you can learn so much in a short amount of time. The last thing is the company is a global company which provides great opportunity for global interactions.

    Cons

    The only con I came across while working here was that the talent is so elite that they can teach the beginning steps of learning how to use systems or resources. There also needs to be more significance in the education of their people, while they are great at what they do they cant grow holistically to benefit the company.

    Pros

    Division of labor, well structures, lots to learn and teach, great co ordination and teamwork, right from top management

    Cons

    Though not really a negative, it could be a challenge to be fast paced at times, with sudden meal count changes, flight delays and aircraft changes ( swaps) which however is the very nature of the business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Glad and very happy to be back with LSG sky Chefs , this time at TX !

    Pros

    Learned some thing about the airline business.

    Cons

    The pay was low and the work hour was long. The management was rude. Felt like I was treated as a object. By the time I left the company, most people who were hired at the same time also left. Some managers left too. Like the other one said the turn over rate was high in this company. Not recommend to work there.

    Pros

    This place will always keep you moving and make you face challenges you never could believe to be possible. If you are looking for somewhere that will keep you thinking non stop this is the place to go.

    Cons

    They do not have any real training. You are basically thrown in and left with a, "sink or swim", mentality.

    Pros

    Company outlook is very stable. Food is great.

    Cons

    Always feel behind the 8 ball. Never get the chance to enjoy any of the accomplishments before next crisis arrives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Suport your staff. Give them the resources not just promises.

    Pros

    exciting challenging career opportunities, but long hours. Depending on position pay is good or fair. If you like the airlines industry then these are great jobs.

    Cons

    upper and mid management have issues when relating to employees. HR is there for the company not the employees. They could really excel and be a top company if they would get their systems under control, and revise their entire management style. There is little or no training for new hires. Prepare to spend a lot of time fire fighting. They tend to rotate CEO's often.. 3-5 year tenures.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Wake up. You have very taltented employees who are very loyal but you will loose you best if practices do not change
