Former Employee - Cabin Crew says"Mostly turnarounds flights which make you super exhausted after every single flight Always lack of crew, because of high turnover rate Hierarchy is a big thing Senior crews who would just love to find fault on the Junior crew"
says"Bad working culture. Prehistorical management. Health Hazard. Management talk, you listen even if it is a dialogue or feedback session."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"No career progression. Plenty of office gossips. Long hours and lack of work recognition. Uncompetitive salary package. SME-like work culture that requires multi-tasking, hence end up a jack-of-all-trades."
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"Management style very 'old school' and 'military' style. Only with ranks or years of service (seniority based on staff number), then your words carries weights. Need to improve on staff welfare and workload management."
Current Employee - Anonymous Employee says"Turnarounds 90% some crew are mentally challenged"
Former Employee - Anonymous Employee says"If... Lean but strong corporate systems/resources = Good output and good outcome Then.. Very lean and weak corporate systems/resources = Go figure Rotational system provides opportunities to do new roles, but can also result in loss of knowledge. Most department heads/managers themselves are not subject matter experts in what they do, because of this rotational policy. Learning, development and progress can seriously be stunted. Mismatch in values and goals between executives, management and support staff. Most of the support staff are in for the job stability, laid-back climate, executives want career progression and to be more enterprising, to try new things, and management just want their own ideas (usually what has always worked) to be implemented. The result? Management espouses on about their plan, support staff are cynical and lack drive (most), executives get caught in between, and get disillusioned. The staff population pyramid reflects this. Beyond overseas postings for young execs, there's really nothing much to look forward to in the long-term, unless you really LOVE the company and LOVE aviation."
