    I worked at Virgin America full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Energetic and exciting atmosphere for a young person especially. "Hip" culture. Massive room to grow.

    Cons

    Spotty training department. Longer hours than established airlines, lower pay, and lack of good work rules or contract. Pilots only paid when aircraft is moving 5 mph or greater, unlike others. (no pay during pushback, or parked off the gate) Trip patterns do not take circadian rhythms into account at all. It is not unusual for a trip to end in the morning and be scheduled for a "redeye" the same night after a 12 hour "rest" at home base in mid-day. Frequent firings.

    Advice to Management

    You are developing an adversarial atmosphere; you are clearly not "open door" like Southwest.
