    I worked at Air Canada as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Great team, decent atmosphere, nice offices and good parking (if that's important to you).
    I had a great experience there.

    Cons

    I don't think there's as much of a chance of progressing that much in the company if I were to be employed as one of its employees...

    I worked at Air Canada full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    The benefits and working conditions were great. Ample parking, free shuttle from HQ to airport and at one point monthly bonuses were offered when network achieved on-time performance targets.

    Cons

    Not so easy to move around the company in order to develop your career. Heard of people getting blocked by superiors from moving to other positions in other departments.

    Advice to Management

    Overall a good company to work for.

    Pros

    Great culture, great CEO. Many individuals enjoy the flying benefits. Challenging work with opportunities to grow. Very close to planes all day and it's beautiful to watch.

    Cons

    Very political hierarchy, very low pay. The flying benefits doesn't compensate for the lack of pay. Very far from central locations. Driving there is long and lunch is boring. It's as if you are stripped of your freedom and placed in a cage for 9 hours a day.

    Advice to Management

    Have a more open door policy and less of a strict hierarchal structure

    Pros

    Travel when working, be able to meet different kind of people coming from different background and the opportunity to visit all kind of places while working

    Cons

    Some old employees think they own the company and some of them allow themselves to treat trainees like. That is very insulting! since some of these trainee will become their colleagues.

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget trainees are just like you, they aren't your punching bag. Treat people well and then you will see they will be respectfull at the job and respect all the rules you are expecting them to respect.
