    Pros

    SITA is a key player in the Air Transport Industry, this is an very technically broad environment that offers a variety of challenges. They are an innovator in some key areas but are not fully leveraging their capabilities. They offer a good work-life balance, and decent opportunities (though these may be influenced by geographical region). Management is supportive but focused more intently on foreign markets, at least at the point in time (2010) that I left the company.

    Cons

    The Air Transport Industry is evolving and in recent years the growth has been in off-shore emerging markets in contrast to North America which is a rather mature market. This means that opportunities may be reduced for N. American employees. This is a reality, not a negative in regard to SITA. Compensation was Fair to Attractive with a reasonable bonus plan. Benefits are average/typical and Company Values are good.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in North America as new technologies bring new opportunities, even in mature markets. Otherwise, keep providing a good workplace with strong ethics and an interesting work environment.

    Pros

    Small knit organization at the Long Island Site, intimate settings, people are friendly. Once a month PIZZA, Friday Bagel days. There is a great work life balance, per being able to get things done if need be in the time of an emergency. Flexible work hours.

    Cons

    Not the work environment for you if you get offended easily. Lacks diversity, predominantly men. Can be cliche per groups who work with each other, despite the fact the building is small, everyone does not know everyone, able to put a face to a name.

    Advice to Management

    The politics of promotions, salaries, high and fire need to be a little more discreet.

    Pros

    Stability, nothing else to add. Global environment. Diversity of products and solutions.

    Cons

    Poor leadership management; way too much politics ; inefficient system to reward high performers; salary increase every couple of years and can be as low as 2%. Very cheap company in regards to standard employees, with no serious interest nor investment in employees further education.

    Pros

    Many learning opportunities.
    Benefits and pay are good especially vacation and bonuses.

    Cons

    Competency and vision is not retained. Many of the best people move on to opportunities elsewhere as they see the corporate trend to outsource as much as possible.

    Pros

    SITA allows constant opportunities for interaction with people from diverse nationalities and backgrounds and, if your position allows, travel opportunities across the globe. Lots of variety -- can be very exciting.

    Cons

    SITA has a complete lack of checks and balances in management positions and has had more than one issue with corruption from middle management on up through the C level ranks. This creates miserable fallout for everyone down the line. Corporate HQ is in Europe and they are often out of touch with what goes on in the Americas.
