How is the work/life balance at British Airways?

Pros

Get to learn about the aviation industry and GDS

Cons

Poor pay, work life balance goes for a toss, incentives are a joke, work like a horse and get paid in peanuts, highly dynamic and complicated work, very little scope to grow beyond team leader and that too after 5 years approx., no scope of growth beyond the call center vertical like in other departments, pathetic cafeteria.

Advice to Management

Need to drastically revamp and increase the incentive plans, open new opportunities for growth and new positions.
