    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    The good reasons to work at IATA are the salary, the benefits, the parking place and the staff (excluded some of the managers). It's also a good experience because after you've worked there you are able to fully appreciate the work in any other company,

    Cons

    To stay employed a long time within IATA:
    - always agree with your supervisor
    - do not have any creativity
    - do not be too good in your field
    You can't imagine how many exceptional employees IATA has terminated (and I'm not talking about myself). A tip for headhunters: if you need good candidates for any position don't hesitate to hire the ones IATA has fired. They are real talents !!!

    Advice to Management

    Maybe things are going to change with the arrival of the new CEO but I would tell them to stop being afraid of excellent specialists. Even if they are better than their supervisor (and that's not difficult), they can bring a lot to the association. And please, get rid of the Italian mafia !!!

    "Unique, potentially great, unfortunately a nightmare"

    Former Employee - Assistant Director

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Unique example of a private body governing a whole industry. Potentially great opportunity to lead innovation, change, technology and governance for moving the industry towards its future.

    Many great individuals within the mid & senior management, but unfortunately not reespected/recognized by the executive management (see the "cons")

    Good compensation package.

    Cons

    Power is usurped/confiscated by the (former) CEO, who is managing by fear with the help of a few devoted followers (executers) who have no ethic, no vision and no sense business. CEO's decisions are all serving his individual success vis-a-vis the industry to whom he is lying on real achievements and delivered value.

    Advice to Management

    The new CEO should conduct a full overhaul/re-engineering of the organization and open a new era with the airlines (industry). Hopefully, many valuable resources are available inside. Therefore, he should spend time listening to those who have skills, experience and motivation.

    To succeed in this enterprise, he should:

    1. ensure immunity to those who will talk (they are traumatized)
    2. get rid of all apparachiks of his predecessor (including silent accomplices)
