    I have been working at Swiss International Air Lines full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I enjoy having to meet people with different cultures. Also, because of the health benefits and it has flexible hours for employees. Another benefit is that while working you can travel the world.

    Cons

    A con for being a flight attendant will be missing family events. Having long hours of work and losing and gaining time.
