    short breaks, understaffed.Management very strict and regulations are very tight. The staff in my department were overloaded with work, frustrated and pushed to their limits. Some managers had no experinece whatsoever and were ony promoted due to their connections

    management is ungrateful, irresponsible, works people to the bone, and never has a kind word to say to some of the kindest people I knew.

    get over yourself. racism/sexism/ageism is rampant.

    Pros

    Lucky me I just barely escaped. Other than that ....nil

    Cons

    Over hyped, ridiculous company that doesn't even know how to recruit the new candidates to the company. Doesn't matter how qualified and experienced you are they just ignore u blink of an eye. Did ever seen several hundred of people interviewed in few hours of time. They just sick enough to offer a uni degree holder with years of management experience a position of a trolley boy.. I don't know what kind of people running the higher management. Careful People...

    Advice to Management

    I don't think my advice gonna help the ignorance.

    Pros

    Discounted tickets, multicultural working environment, travel the world

    Cons

    Employees are working under fear owing to tough regulations which also seriously offend personal lives ( 12 hours before the flight we're only "allowed" to go out of accommodation for 1.5 hours, when having consecutive turnarounds a few days I totally feel like a prisoner!!). Most situations people think of how to escape from the punishment by the company (being demoted, termination, put you on ground, etc) instead of solving it.

    Advice to Management

    Borrow a line from you: if you don't take care of your employees, someone else will ;)

    Pros

    HR Team will try to select experienced guys on low profiles and growth rate is very very poor. Consultants have more value compare to direct employees.

    Cons

    No growth at all.

    Advice to Management

    Conduct HR meetings with employees for the improvement.

    Have a appraisal cycle every year.

    Review employee grades based on overall total experience.
