    Pros

    The benefits of cheap air tickets; big multinational company; challenging environment; company with very promising future if Sr. MGMT is able to handle a difficult business

    Cons

    Should review the compensation policy; work-life balance could be better; merit increases should be better applied and must be aligned with a better talent retention policy

    Advice to Management

    Hope you review the way you retain the talent that might help the company accomplish its long-term objectives

    Too high workload. No time for yourself after work. Not a fixed time to leave the office so most people stays late.

    Fire the ones dont add value to the company. Please minimize burocracy.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    They 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 Management

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

    Pros

    Aviation environment is the best for everyone, if you love aviation is the best place to work, but be careful with the shift schedule

    Cons

    People wants competence and money like hungry dogs, so be careful because they can move your seat or make you falling down.

    Advice to Management

    better focus on your employers not in your independent work.

    Pros

    Excellent working atmosphere, organized procedures, follow ups, and good opportunities of growth. I do regret it all finished with the merge.

    Cons

    We were all dismissed. Some workers with certain positions remain, but for airline's operational convenience, only.

    Advice to Management

    I suppose he is not concerned about anyone's opinion.
