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!

    I worked at United Airlines full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Travel priviledges at leading global airline. Immediate supervisors were genuinely engaged at making the process better. The company has all the tools to become a leading force in the industry.

    Cons

    It is a big organization. As such there are definitely turf wars between divisions among senior leadership. The process of integrating the legacy United and Continental operations have surfaced some major issues. With in the company the sense of urgency to complete the integration have glossed over some major issues that need to be addressed.

    Advice to Management

    There are some really talented people who are providing some common sense solutions to major issues. Listen to them.
