    I have been working at gategroup full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Nice office, free coffee, good parking...sad that that's about it.

    Cons

    #1 problem is culture, which is cut throat. Every Director is consumed on how they must appear as value add, even at the expense of their own teams. HR should do something about this but they can't even keep their own people. Our 4 Values are for everyone else to cultivate, but not senior leadership as they rarely embody these.

    Meetings show lowest levels of accountability and a culture of hostility and blame. Data is skewed to cover problems or create appearances. The best meetings are those that get canceled.

    Advice to Management

    There's really only one solution: take care of your people but as a group it is visible that bonuses and perks are all you strive to secure and maintain. You create the culture and what are people saying about it?

    Give people the best benefits, best pay, best culture....watch them solve all the problems. Why do you refuse this simple solution?

    Focus on People First and retention because turnover is a number one issue that clients are now complaining about
