    Pros

    The flight benefits and fringe benefits are top notch. The flexibility of work schedule makes for ease in planning getaways. The mornings give you most of the day to get other things done.

    Cons

    The two shifts have you working really early or late. The support of supervisors and leads agents can be fickle. When weather hits, you have massive lines of people angry with you.

    Advice to Management

    Stick to the rules or don't make them so inflexible.


  2. "Flight benefits aren't what they used to be"

    Current Employee - Senior Engineer

    Pros

    Free travel in coach after 5 years, no overtime expected, get to work around airplanes

    Cons

    It's hard to travel standby with a family due to lack of empty seats on planes. The salary for engineers will always be less than the industry average. Lots of paperwork. As an engineer you hit the career ceiling pretty fast unless you go into one of the limited number of supervisory roles.
