      Not the worse, far from the best

      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

      Good, professional company to work for, but to Swiss German and stiff minded

      Pros

      Very Good company to work for, professional in its way of hiring and treating employees. Good Flight benefits

      Cons

      Very stiff ambiance, and hard to get "in" the corporate culture if you don't speak German or Swiss German. It still stays a corporate in the sense that you will have a lot of internal politics, fake smiles and lack of trust between employees.

      Pros

      Small boutique-style quality airline, innovative with great team spirit. Excellent flight benefits, continually improving.

      Cons

      Since owned by Lufthansa Group, all decisions and influence (negatively) come from Germany: inflexible and extremely hierarchical. Sadly losing the "swissness" which made company special to work for. Willingness to sacrifice know-how and dedicated staff for sake of LH Group. Only beneficiaries to re-organization are Lufthansa employees.

      Cons

      Some departments managers are quite simply not capable and as a result departments are poorly managed, with the effect on morale quite significant. The inadequate and incompetent department managers that are slowly destroying a good workforce
