    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Lufthansa Group full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Steady salary and some benefits. Environment for the number-oriented and rule follower. Analytical heaven to run numbers until they match forecast outcome. Single wannabe paradise with buddy system to support solo lifestyle.

    Cons

    Low pay and almost non-existent bonus, limited ability to work remotely, and not much growth opportunity in the USA for Americans. US operations is grounds for German training sending their most inexperience workforce to intern/rotate at the expense of locals who have to deal with amateur expatriates with no knowledge of the aviation industry. Lots of ageism and other types of discrimination. An only say YES mindset environment, do not dare to offer new ideas to management. Expect to be yelled at and denigrated. Push mindset for customer service limits client satisfaction and sales. Personal life suffers due to work demands. Company policy excludes spouses from social events, while encouraging self-pay night socializing among employees. Employee reimbursement is bureaucratic and limited to the point you will stay at poor lodging and will pay for most of your parking/transportation costs and food while traveling. If you are a YES person, can endure bureaucracy, do not mind a misogynistic workplace, and are desperate for a steady paycheck despite your dignity, this is the company for you.
