I have been working at United Airlines full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Good ability to try new things (the airline has many divisions so employees can get exposure to whatever type of business interests you) and management is supporting of developing talent; hours are great (corporate standard 8a-5p or 9a-6p); competitive salary; flight benefits; challenging and interesting airline industry; the cross-divisional nature of the work is tremendous -- never stuck in one spot/area without exposure to multiple divisions and/or impacting on-going projects.

Cons

Need to network to build your brand and be recognized within the company (fairly standard); desired opportunities subject to availability; can be cuts depending on economy.

Advice to Management

There are some leaders who are really getting the job done and others who are not -- now that we are sufficiently post-merger would suggest holding those who are not more accountable for results.

    I have been working at United Airlines full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Seeing your company name and industry in the news everyday is exciting, be it good or bad. Working in the Loop is a major plus. Oh ya...the flight benefits are pretty sick too!

    Cons

    Our IT systems are dated and could use step change improvements. The merger has been frustrating at times for our customers.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more accountability to all levels of employment.
