    • Work/Life Balance

    • Comp & Benefits
    • Senior Management
    Former Employee - Senior Manager in Chicago, IL
    Former Employee - Senior Manager in Chicago, IL

    Pros

    The travel benefits place an airline job in a different class of work place benefits. It is difficult to place a value on what the travel benefits are worth.

    Cons

    The Headquarters is overstaffed, especially after the merger. There are many airline "lifers" in mid-upper management who function as "yes men, or yes women" because they are not brave enough to push the limits. There is no innovation going on at United.

    Advice to Management

    Hire mid-upper management from outside of the company and outside of the industry. New blood and thinking are needed to make lasting change at this company.
