    Pros

    Evolution opportunities, a lot of time off and understandable management. Ability to contribute ideas to your superiors.

    Cons

    Can be working unsociable hours including bank holidays, christmas and new years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look after the group that represent the majority of your staff as they do not feel valued, from new employees to long serving ones.

    I have been working at easyJet

    Pros

    I joined a couple of months ago and have been impressed so far. They've been very welcoming. It's a very action oriented culture. They do things quickly, and genuinely care about their customers. Carolyn is hugely respected and has delivered a very high performing organisation. There are a lot of big transformation projects coming down the pipe in 2015 so it's going to be a demanding year - but loads of opportunities for people who want them!

    Cons

    There is still a certain lack of maturity in their systems and processes - some things are still overly complex but there is a big drive towards simplicity. The HQ is at Luton Airport which is nobody's idea of a great location, but it's handy for the M1 and the train links are great.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The office environment is a bit cramped. Time to rent out some additional space I think!

    HR (people) team is a complete shambles

    Pros

    It's great to see that the company articulates its strategy to staff well and mostly the values are lived on a day to day basis.

    Cons

    unfortunately the HR team is completely disorganised and populated by people who have worked their way up from retail shop floor so not many are university educated or even have the CIPD qualification. If you're looking for an HR role in a cutting edge HR team, using the latest thinking, tools and processes, this is not the place for you.

    I worked at easyJet full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    You get to work with some very good people in their fields.
    It's a very un-corporate environment.
    Flight ticket discounts. You can find some reduced fares although it depends on demand. Then there is standby scheme, but that is not very useful as you will only know last minute if you can board the plane. It's only viable if you are single.

    Cons

    It is a very aggressive and cutthroat environment, where your colleagues will throw you under the bus at any given chance for their own advancement. Also, because every thing that happens in the back office can affect things like on time performance, which in turn has an impact on share prices, everyone is very quick to deflect any blames. This creates some very negative office relationship dynamics.
    The brand can be a bit of an issue
    Senior management takes a lot of credit for successes but that credit never trickles down.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Seriously look into how you measure success

    Pros

    exceptionally friendly people, challenging work and opportunities to develop through the work that you do as you learn so much on a daily basis. Compensation is competitive and as long as you are motivated, you can get involved in lots of exciting work.

    Cons

    Its hard work working at easyJet and you have to be fairly resilient to keep the pace. Its still growing up and as a result the infrastructure is being changed to support a FTSE100 company so there is a lot to do and not always enough people. For the right people, this is a brilliant opportunity.

    Pros

    As a company, they look after their staff very well. Subject to targets being met, you are awarded 2 weeks salary worth of free shares in the company every year. Also a 2 weeks worth of salary bonus is paid just before christmas. A bottle of champagne and a thank you card from the CEO is delivered to each member of staff's home address just before christmas. The staff travel scheme is excellent, I would say the best in the industry. There are various employee reward schemes that reward those that have gone above and beyond in a particular field. A grand all expenses award ceremony is held usually in London for the lucky nominees

    Cons

    Although the senior management team are very dynamic and generally good at what they do, the base management tend to be less dynamic at best, and utterly incompetent at worse. Depending on your base, opportunities for promotion may be relatively quick (LGW for example). As such a huge airline do expect to feel like a number rather than a person sometimes. There is a policy and procedure for absolutely everything at EZY and they do expect them to be followed, so maybe it's not the airline for free thinkers and rebels!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep a close eye on the middle management at the bases....some are good, some are dangerous yet they get pretty much left alone to run their base as they wish

    Pros

    Fantastic Team support, amazing benefits for staff, which include Staff travel rates on flights and discounts on lots of products including gym memberships. They are also very good at letting staff know what their options for growth within the company are, including workshop days.

    Cons

    Some very challenging working hours - long days. With so many staff at one base, it is sometimes very difficult to build relationships with seniors.

    Pros

    there are many things that make this company better than others. for a start there are good measures in place to ensure that your well being is looked after such as fatigue reports if nessecary, people to talk to that are always available if you have a problem or question with anything at work. every body is very friendly. i find myself wanting to go to work everyday, i dont really see it as going to work its more of doing good deeds and meeting new people having a good day and doing what you can for people whilst keeping them safe and happy, getting paid is just a bonus for me.

    Cons

    there are always cons to anything in the world , we all want to get paid more and work less but thats un realistic. id like to have healthier options to crew food and see more change, it has got better in the year that ive been there and i know that they are still working on it. i enjoy the fact that we actually get fed whilst on board as some companies dont even do that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    this is a tricky one as i know they do a lot to communicate with crew about what is going on or going to happen and i find this great however i think that they sometimes need to put themselves in our situations and try and think like crew do to help solve situations in the future.
