    Pros

    Great travel benefits and health insurance options.

    Cons

    Middle management has a very outdated way of thinking which does not allow newer employees to feel valued. The vacation days and pay is lower than the average but HR will used biased statistics to try and show that it's on par with the median.

    I worked at Air France-KLM

    Pros

    Strong Brand. French culture, large network.

    Cons

    Very Poor untrained Sr Exec coming from overseas with a 3 years rotation in each function. No one works to build a better company. The Sr exec can not benefit from its contribution, (the first year he needs to learn, and the second year planning will only be implemented year 3. It is already too late as they start wondering what will be the next assignment, and any improvement without guaranty, would send them t0o a desk job. So procrastination is key for survival. If you are a dower, do not waste your time, you will only build frustrations. the team who buys businesses in the US do not have a Global coherent vision and do not do their proper due diligence. Only Purchase from paper analysis and inventory audits. They buy the wrong business and leave for someone else dealing. it does not take very long to see the reality, but years to cover and pretend that he can work. The messenger seats at a dangerous spot, but if he can seat tight 3 years, the problem will become someone else. The sr Exec come from ivy league schools and under a French socialist culture are underpaid and used to have the French tax payer pay for losses. there is no entrepreneurship possibility, where high achievers will drive the business up, but large Global plans to lead all at right, or all at left, while the momentum of a huge and complex business carrying on forward, compressing the failures or successes in its gigantic momentum.
