    Pros

    The Employee travel program is the biggest perk. It allows you to fly almost free and on other airlines at a heavily discounted rate.
    Most positions below management are Union. Ability to trade shifts with other employees for more vacation time.

    Cons

    Low entry pay. Probationary period is very strict. High turn over rate. Poor attitudes in the workplace, low pride in work leading to stressful workdays. Employees are not on the same page a lot of the time. few options to assist passengers in need leads to frustration for all. Schedule management issues when requesting days off or trade. Not much opportunity to move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to employees. Work with them.

    Pros

    You get to put a Fortune 500 on your resume.

    Cons

    The pay is low
    The flight benefits in theory are great, but with the industry reducing capacity good luck finding seats
    Promotions tend to occur based on who is the most airline "nerdy" and not who is best equipped to lead or manage, which as you can imagine can create problems. I don't fault the individuals, just believe the flaw in the logic to promoting puts them in position to fail.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perform an analysis on the cost of paying better to retain employees vs. the output you get from lesser experienced, inferior labor plus training costs.
    Revisit your promotion logic and/or look into training your managers on how to be managers
