    I worked at Ryan International Airlines full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Fast-paced, dynamic working environment where everyone was constantly learning and adapting to new challenges.

    Cons

    A lack of effective communication throughout the different levels of the company; not just about the overall direction of the company but also the day-to-day operational details. Lack of communication and high stress environment would occasionally lead to shouting matches.

    Advice to Management

    Process mapping and a better framework for communication to keep everyone on the same page as much as possible would help not only with morale but being able to adapt to change more quickly.

    I worked at Ryan International Airlines full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -International Flights Right Away to contries you never thought you would visit
    -Lots of Military Charter flights so passengers were a lot more friendlier and easy to handle
    -Most co-workers were nice and friendly and ready for an adventure to explore whatever country you were in
    -Lots of flgihts to pickup on days off

    Cons

    -Poor Management of the company
    -Inflight supervisor was terrible, unprofessional and unreliable
    -Crew Scheduling was understaffed so they were a mess and many times had no idea where in the world you were or would forget to schedule our transportation and lodging
    -Loooooooooong Work hours
    -You get worked to the bone
    -Low starting base pay
    -Lots of time away from home
    -Super unorganzied airline

    The communication within the company was terrible and I have no idea how those planes were still working because the company tried saving money on parts and repairs but yet spent a ton of money on food that was wasted. Many times we were short on basic things on the flights and we had to improvise. You were basically a slave in this company and if you didnt like it, they could care less if you left.

    Unfortunately due to bad management and poor decision making the airline went bankrupt and rumors are that it may restart again under a different name but the airline accumulated so much debt with airports all over the world and a bad reputation that reviving an airlines with such a negetive history would not be the best idea.

    Advice to Management

    Better organization and communication and invest in better systems for crew management and have a little more compassion for your employees.
