    I have been working at Philippine Air full-time

    Pros

    1. Great benefits (discounted tickets)
    2. Adequate salary

    Cons

    1. Management is extremely traditional
    2. Medical benefits are conditional (ex. you won't get any benefits if you don't reach their ideal body weight in 4 months - mind you)
    3. Inefficient medical personnel (most of them are very rude and sometimes they're inaccurate)
    4. Older employees are judgmental of the newer ones
    5. Favoritism is prominent
    6. If you're part of the admin you won't get overtime pay
    7. Initiatives by the HR aren't really being followed (depending on the department you're in)
    8. If you try to complain to HR nothing will really happen
    9. Work gets repetitive
    10. (Department-specific) Basically everyone's afraid to voice out their opinion to management because either he/she would get scolded
    11. 9-hour work day

    Personally, I'm just looking for the right time to resign.

    Advice to Management

    Please change your ways in terms of handling your employees. You may be shifting to a better image, but that won't happen if you don't take care of your employees well.
