    Pros

    Aside from flying free, PAL provides the best medical benefits to its employees. This could be the reason why some employees who could not perform well due to physical disabilities opt to stay with PAL instead of retiring early.

    Cons

    Like in any other service companies, you could not argue with a dissatisfied customer who experienced a negative situation that is beyond our control.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Choose the best people among the ranks when there are vacancies. Seniority should not have the highest percentage in qualification.

    Pros

    When you enter Philippine Air you feel the family atmosphere. Working with PAL also gives you pride for working in a prestigious company.

    Cons

    Room for advancement is very slow. They provide training every now and then but you can't move upwards because the senior employees don't retire until it mandatory to retire.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    offer attractive retirement plan so those who have served the company for so long would like to grab retirement and give chance to the younger ones.
