        I worked at Cathay Pacific full-time for more than a year

        Pros

        The product is good, and company portrays itself as an equal opportunies employer, however this is not the case.

        Cons

        Xenophobic attitude by third rate airport managers if you are chinese, and very much a divided culture amongst staff. No attempt by the airport managers to encourage any form of genuine team spirit.
