    Positive Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at IATA full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great projects, great people, truly international, well connected to the industry, good salary packages, if you like air transport it's your place.

    Cons

    Historically deficient HR policies (very little career planning, people development, manager training etc.). Has improved somewhat recently, but still lot's to do.
    The organization's growth has stalled recently, further limiting growth opportunities for its people. But projects remain just as ambitious, leading to growing incidence of overworked staff, burning themselves out.

    Advice to Management

    Put more emphasis on people growth. Adopt more modern HR policies.
