    I worked at Ryanair full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    It' gives an opportunity to work in your field, the salary is paid on time, some people are nice to work with.

    Cons

    Ryanair HR team and management is the most incompetent I've ever had to deal with, low salary compare to what other companies can give for the same job, poor training and very little space to grow in the company, it's like working in Mc Donalds, with no much grow. Some people who are working in the company have no a little clue about aviation transport. Very little benefits to work for this company.

    Advice to Management

    Hire new management staff and fire the old one, make the company more friendlier to everyone, learn something positive from the competitor airlines.

    I worked at Ryanair full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Full-time job, 8 hours contract, contact with people

    Cons

    The team work doesn't exist, the employees are fighting for 1€ (when people get charged for extra luggage on the boarding gate the agent get benefit 1€). You are obligated to charge 10 passenger minimum per day for extra bag. Fighting with passengers and colleges all day. The company create rivalry between employees and that make the environment insupportable.

    Advice to Management

    Well if you have another option or job offer better get it and run fast.

    I worked at Ryanair (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Full exposure to the airline industry. Some very nice people who are treated badly a lot of the time unfortunately. Can be a good place for youngsters to learn.

    Cons

    Lies lies and more lies. Some management good - majority very poor. Many prepared to back stab. Reputation within the industry is poor - but I guess you should know that already. There are some horrors in there - much worse than the CEOs controversial image.

    Advice to Management

    Don't expect to get away with treating staff like trash forever. The knowledge they gain at Ryanair may come back to haunt you in the future. Treat people with outside experience with respect and be aware of putting very young individuals in high positions just because they are cheaper/more intimidated.

    I have been working at Ryanair full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Once you get a Ryanair contract, the money is good and possibly one of the very few reasons why people stay. The people who work here are mostly amazing, a nice, fun atmosphere among colleagues. Even though staff travel is not the best, you still have the chance to travel around Europe and connect with family and friends.

    Cons

    it might look like there are great opportunities to get promoted, etc. The truth is there aren't, really after you've become a supervisor. The management has no consideration for its employees at all. I do understand that there are so many of us, but sometimes, individual circumstances should be considered. When you ask for something which would be considered normal in other places, it's a big deal. Everything is a big deal. Virtually impossible to get holidays in the summer. In my base we are not allowed to wear a coat in winter or ponytails, things that exist in other bases. Staff travel could be better (and cheaper).

    Advice to Management

    The company is finally realizing that they should treat the passengers better and we've seen some great innovations in this regard. Sadly, the same positive outlook doesn't apply to the staff. Our conditions get worse and worse. Happy staff= happy passengers. A concept totally alien to this company
