    I worked at Lufthansa as an intern

    Pros

    Great experience learning more about the aviation industry and the airlines under the Lufthansa Group. They also allowed me to attend a company trip, which I thought was very generous of them considering I was only a summer intern.

    Cons

    Some days dragged- if coworkers were away for business trips, I had nothing to do in the office! Their IT system is also lacking.

    I have been working at Lufthansa (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flight benefits, global company, extensive benefits, reliable and steady company, part of a global aviation group and worldwide opportunities

    Cons

    Lengthy decision making process halts innovation. Many group airlines do not cooperate sufficiently such that many local solutions still exist

    Advice to Management

    More dynamic and direct decision making would empower employees and create a more innovative working culture rather than managing status quo

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunities to work on projects, seeing as the company will restructure again.

    Cons

    Outlook for employment is bleak, they say they're adding jobs, but it's almost all in their subsidiaries, not in the core-group. Also, if you're an intern, chances are you will not get an offer, even if your performance is outstanding.
