    I have been working at Spirit Airlines full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Some departments are fantastic and filled with awesome people, others are filled with awesome people too, but the downfall is management at times. You have your department heads that love what they do and fight for their employees, and others work against their employees. The luck of the draw.
    -The airline is growing, and there is much to do.
    -Pretty cool people.
    -Flight benefits, 401k Charles Schwaab, paid vacation, etc.

    Cons

    -Pay not as high as other airlines.
    -The company takes forever to implement a lot of things.

    Advice to Management

    Everyone should be on the same page if we want to reach the desired goal.
    This doesn't apply to every department, some are awesome, others not so much, but please listen to your employees. If people start quitting or getting fired left and right, the problem is management.
