    Pros

    Amazing health care benefits, flight benefits are OK

    Cons

    Inadequate time off unless you've been there forever. Poor Senior Management. Lack of cohesive corporate strategy, no ability to plan so everything is an emergency evolution. Limited opportunity for advancement.

    Hire the appropriate number of people for the amount of work you want done or learn how to plan things better

    Great opportunity

    Pros

    Travel Benefits, Location and Employees.

    Cons

    Undefined Management and HR Practices for employee separations. Management has no loyalty to 10 year employees. Staff reorganizations will bump lower positions which affect career employees, so don't expect any protection from being bumped out of a job by a higher level employee or Sr. Management buddy.

    Advice to Management

    Develop and adhere to strict policies that protect your experienced management staff. It's hard to articulate here, due to the policy retention and separation complexities that this company does not understand.

    I worked at Hawaiian Airlines full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Travel benefits and compensation are definitely going to be the highlights here. It'll be difficult to take advantage of flight benefits off that bat as people with more seniority will bump you off a flight. Planning standby travel can also be an added stress since you aren't guaranteed a seat and will be reprimanded for missing work due to a missed flight.

    Cons

    Prepare to be held to high expectations and long hours to prove your worth. Everyone here has their own approaches to doing things so it's challenging to find out proper methods and you end up depending on yourself to blaze a trail and getting the teams to jump on board.

    Advice to Management

    Strive to show the knowledge and leadership to inspire and educate your team rather then offloading on to other parties.
