    I worked at Qantas (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great company and colleagues to work with. A sense of family amongst crew. Safety is the priority for the customers and crew. If you want to see the world great perks for your family as the travel benefits is great. Flexible schedules that you can swap with colleagues except if you have A days (avail/stand by) that no one would really like .

    Cons

    You have no control of situations so you have to be adaptable schedule wise.

    Advice to Management

    Employees can get paid better!

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

    Pros

    Great people! You meet colleagues who will turn into friends from all walks of life across the world.
    Travel benefits are satisfactory (as long as you're employed of course), so make us of it as long as you can.
    The "Spirit of Australia" is evident everywhere you look so it's hard not to get caught up in it.

    Cons

    With severe cutbacks as of late, morale is low.

    Advice to Management

    "Old-school" values are GREAT, however, don't get left behind with the changing times.
