SITA is a global organization in a complex and fast-moving industry, and we recognize the need to adapt and change in response to different conditions. The same values apply to the focus that we put on our social and environmental programs. Our overarching approach is simple and gives us the opportunity to evolve over time, with commitments to: 

 

• Reduce our environmental impact 

 

• Support the communities where we operate

 

Environmental Contributions

In 2018 SITA started a program to reduce the impact of our travel, while supporting programs around biodiversity, habitat preservation, reforestation, education, access to clean power and community development. By the end of the year, we had offset all our air travel. And we're proud that working with our partner Natural Capital Partners has reaped benefits for the environment and communities in Borneo and Tamil Nadu. Our next projects are supporting access to clean water and hygiene in Guatemala and Rwanda.

    I have been working at SITA full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    SITA offers a great opportunity to collaborate with colleagues around the globe. For a medium-sized company the benefits, 401(k) match and work/life balance are much better than much larger companies. The culture is very friendly and supportive and I genuinely enjoy my co-workers. I am also proud to work for a tech company that has a female CEO!

    Cons

    SITA's business units can be somewhat siloed but leadership is making strides in a positive direction.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to refresh the older office spaces. I love the bright new spaces of the remodeled areas!

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4+ weeks. I interviewed at SITA in April 2019.

    Interview

    It was smooth and easy..
    Multiple phone and video calls.
    HR was organizing the communications with the hiring managers as I had more than 1 interview.
    Every time, I was receiving a call form the HR first to schedule the best timing, then I receive a meeting invitation with the interviewer.
