      Pros

      This company does a great deal of promoting within, and there are lots of opportunities for people who want to go live in another country for a few years, also, staff travel is a NICE perk!

      Cons

      The pay scale for those who are not in management isn’t great, but you have to look at trade offs.

      Great Company to work for... in Australia

      Pros

      Staff Travel benefits are great but only if you live in Australia. Compensation is okay. Australia-based employees are wonderful to work with!

      Cons

      Major cutbacks and layoffs during the Transformation has employees working multiple jobs with minimal support. Lack of training and development.

      Pretty good company to work for with good vibes

      Pros

      - Generous staff travel benefits which are not limited to Qantas but also to numerous partner airlines - A very organised (in a positive way), large MNC - one of the largest airlines in the world and the largest airline of Australia, so very good for your resume in Australia - A pretty positive general working vibe/culture, but of course could vary by team/location/department - In general, there are some pretty talented and smart people - It feels reasonably diverse, both in terms of demographics and skill set

      Cons

      - Offshore teams can sometimes be forgotten, but I don't blame them, given their weighting in their home country - You can sometimes feel the arrogance of people due to the company's stature - Low turnover, which could be good, but is bad because it means you have people who have worked too long at one company and forgotten how big the world is outside your last 10+ years of working life - Airlines are one of the first companies to suffer in times of economic downturns, so you need to watch out for that! - Limited opportunities for career growth outside of Australia, due to nature of their business (compared to companies with huge presence in several countries) - I get the feeling that they underpay in dollar terms due to their generous staff travel benefit - which, whilst a good thing, I'd probably pick a higher dollar salary if it means foregoing this benefit!

      Excellent Company with Systemic Problems

      Pros

      Staff travel is incredible and allowed me to see the world, but had become increasingly more and more complicated and difficult to utilise. There are opportunities for those who dedicate their life to the company, but otherwise you will remain in the same role for your entire career.

      Cons

      Management - at any level - do not have any understanding of their employees or customers. Was pushed daily to meet rudimentary goals which would either generate a natural or negative experience for the passengers. Continual push towards digitisation and withdrawing all customer service staff.

      Qantas Loyalty - AVOID!

      CEO Approval
      Business Outlook

      Pros

      Staff Travel - Discounted flights but you will be begging for a seat each time waiting till the last minute at the counter.

      Cons

      Terrible culture, backstabbing, gossiping Progression is based on who you know and whether they are in favour Too many females in marketing - get some variety! All Xmas parties and outings needed to be funded from your own pocket! The worst place I worked at It's all about who knows who, constant promotions of 'friends of friends' Middle management - dry and boring, no flare whatsoever Typical corporate culture - just come in, put your head down and clock out at 5.30pm and go home. Dreadfull.
