    I worked at Air New Zealand

    Pros

    The people - from the very top downwards - and the product. Great communication from senior team at HQ down to the regions, despite the challenges with time zones

    Cons

    I honestly can’t think of any.. I have nothing but good memories of my time there. Would recommend Air NZ to anyone

    I worked at Air New Zealand full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    --well established business and operational system --very heavy profit focused and shareholder focused --excellent in building reputation and image

    Cons

    --It is all about PROFIT! --The management will do anything to achieve the highest profit for the sake of their owe benefit and career advancement. --Constantly cutting back on work's wages, working conditions and benefits. --Creating toxic workplace culture within different divisions. --Poor business decisions made based on profit making which undermined the well being of the employees and the integrity of the business in a long run. --Upper management is only good at talk the talk and lack of care and sympathy towards their employees.

    I worked at Air New Zealand full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great brand, crew are mostly fantastic, people have real passion for the company.

    Cons

    Naive management in Auckland let offshore regions (specifically London) run almost entirely unchecked, promoting inexperienced internal candidates out of a mixture of fear and laziness. The result is a toxic culture where you do well if you comply unquestioningly with whatever the latest stupid idea is, with dissenters brutally sacked, restructured out or marginalised until they quit.
