I worked at Virgin America full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

On a corporate level it was great, it felt 'Virgin'.

Cons

At the local level-station level, waaaaay too many chiefs. Not consistent with Virgin's values.

Advice to Management

They should do more auditing of Station Managers and their development.

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

    Pros

    will work with some of the most amazing flight attendants around
    amazing product - best planes, great flying experience, great destinations

    Cons

    low pay
    favoritism
    inconsitent work rules
    management as a whole
    poor financial management, company is slowly heading to bankrupcy
    Only room to advance if you're at HQ or willing to move/stay in very $$$$ San Francisco area

    Advice to Management

    Better trip routes, more consideration to the employees that are the face and lead to the success of the company. All employees seem to understand Virgin is still new and growing but while some changes are happening quickly and easily it is some of the most important changes that seem to get very quickly brushed under the rug.
