    Not the worse, far from the best

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    The flight benefits, though they are not currently useful with the pandemic The people are generally nice Flexible work conditions, even before covid it was possible to work from home a few days Good work-life balance

    Cons

    Salaries are at the very bottom of the industry for anyone with any hard skills like data scientists. Same salary brackets as employees without any education or skills working generic office jobs, who you might encounter as a hotel receptionist for example. Even the CEOs of the group acknowledge that but do nothing to fix it. Big cost cutting culture, even before covid, it's a low margin industry. There is not even free coffee in the office. No technical path, you either become a manager or you stay at the same position forever. And becoming a manager depends on a combination of seniority and politics, aka who you know, not hard skills. And still pays less than being an individual contributor at other companies. So good technical people either quit or gradually lose their technical skills. Don't be surprised if you get a manager who knows nothing about data science but has just managed an IT project sometime in the past. Because of the above, since there are no good senior technical people to learn from in the company, you will NOT enhance at all your technical skills at SWISS as if you worked for the same period at another company. Too much influence from Germany, most of the important decisions come from there, most upper executives come from Germany to gain some international experience for a few years and then go get another position in the Lufthansa group. To summarize, if you join, do not stay too long unless your career goal is to become a generic airline manager. Otherwise enjoy the flight benefits for a while and then move on to have a real data science career
