    Pros

    A good company to start your career to get your feet wet. The company is well established and has a set system. The company stays busy being the second largest carrier in the world so you get used to working hard. The office style is pretty laid back as far as management. No micro managing or anything.

    Cons

    Unfortunately the company doesn't offer the highest salaries around. Either they can't because of their employee spread or they just choose not too. Pretty low across the board which makes the company more of a stepping stone in my opinion. I also admit they have a reputation for being bias toward italian descendants in management positions. Other than that a great company.

    Advice to Management

    Consider making this company more of a career rather than just a job.

    Pros

    Too much work, and little pay. Horrible turn around. Crappy building. Half of mangers don't neef to be in management. Excellent medical insurance

    Cons

    Long hours and bad pay.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to appreciate your employees, and show that with better pay. People leave for better paying jobs. Some of the best have left for the competitor

    Pros

    Can get promoted quickly ( supervisors DONT get pay increase by the way)
    great health insurance

    Cons

    You feel like you are in prison, they watch every step you make. You cannot leave work at 4:59! If computer breaks down, you will be sitting at your desk looking at your colleagues but no way you can go home early! That place is a joke! There is a Quality Control department whose job is to count how many IMs you sent, how many phone calls you made, what day of the week you called in sick, etc.
    Ridiculously high turnover because of low pay and atmosphere!
    If you are not Italian and are not friends/family of Top Management, don't expect to go too far!

    Advice to Management

    Starting pay 28,000 with college degrees is an insult!
