I have been working at United Airlines full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

-We are evolving; creating a new brand, opportunities, and reaching new destinations with state-of-the art aircraft.
-Great employee benefits package and access to unique privileges and discounts.
-Fantastic recognition programs on company-wide basis.
-Love traveling? Go anywhere in the world.

Cons

-Certain technology systems (employee and customer facing) need improvement/development.
-Ongoing labor negotiations distract co-workers from enjoying the job.

Advice to Management

-Continue to engage co-workers and review the leadership culture. In other words, survey the workforce on company culture. If necessary, take action with leaders that don't live up to the Working Together philosophy.
-Invest in stations that need facility improvements.
-Encourage cross-divisional job shadowing; allow co-workers to learn other parts of the business.

    I have been working at United Airlines full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The problems we work on are very challenging
    People are worldly, cultured, educated, smart
    So much potential
    Global

    Cons

    Still going through merger/consolidation pains
    United and Continental cultures still purvade separately (United very analytical and programatic, Continental more laissez faire)
    Some organizations can be unusually dogmatic
    Flight benefits are no longer as valuable as they used to be, flights are always full

    Advice to Management

    The culture is still a problem and impeding progress
    Lots of potential to be a great company but impeded by selected organizations (still dogmatic)
    People are really good (well educated, worldly)

    I have been working at United Airlines full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Flying benefits and 401k savings plan

    Cons

    No retirement plans for Chelsea employees, people just do whatever they want in United its not what you know BUT who you know and who you sleep with. Managers just dont have the slightest clue as to how to run a business. They are scared of their employees. Very poor manners and education.

    Advice to Management

    go back to school and learn how to treat people with dignity and respect!
