The most advanced airline

Senior Pricing and Revenue Management Analyst (Former Employee)
Santiago (Chile)

I worked at Lan Airlines full-time for more than a year

ProsCompany is growing very fast. They are very efficient. Leadership is great (mostly ex-McKinsey and alike). There is an amazing environment of camaraderie.

ConsThey do not fire people that they should have done so. Many people can grow and stay in the company just by tenure. Salaries are not that great and many people for better financial opportunities.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe mindful with the cultural challenges of the merge with TAM. Pay more attention to retention -increase salaries and be more flexible with compensation-

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Advice to Senior ManagementI suppose he is not concerned about anyone's opinion.
