    I have been working at IATA as a contractor (More than a year)

    Pros

    1. You get to work with people from all over the world due to the high amount of Expats.
    2. You get to work in an international organization (work with people located in Geneva , Miami, etc)
    3. Vacation time. 4 weeks per year.
    4. Really fancy coffee machines. People take tons of coffee breaks during the day just to socialize and chill.

    Cons

    1. Really low chances to stay after your contract is done unless you are the best friend of your department's director.
    2. A lot of envy and rivalry between employees due to the lack of opportunity to grow up.
    3. Work extra hours and you don't get paid for that.
    4. A lot of bureaucracy. A lot paper work before a decision is made. A lot of useless meeting.
    5. H.C is an useless department that never listens to the needs of the employees. They only hire and fire people.
    6. If you dont accomplish your target sales goals, get ready to get laid off/fired.
    7. Geneva offices get more benefits than Montreal.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the employees. Dont over hire contactors every 6 months instead of that hire employees to decrease rotation.
