    I worked at China Southern Airlines

    Pros

    generally very friendly people to work with in the company and associated companies that you may work alongside at heathrow. your allocated days in your work schedule are flexible in my case but this is dependent on your supervisor i suppose.

    Cons

    wage is not great especially compared to others in the same position at other airlines. you don't really receive much in the way of benefits and any bonuses are strangely not really related to your performance but how well the company does. you will have to work long hours and overtime especially if there are delays and you will not be paid for this. They will not want to give you a raise, no standard annual wage increase and if you ask they seem to react as if it's a taboo. I never received a raise in my wages while working there. Not really any chance for career progression or advancement in your skills. All these reasons contributed to me thinking they only really regard their employees as simple labour just to "get the job done" although they are still generally very friendly.
