    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 ManagementAdvice

    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.
