    I worked at Aer Lingus part-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Staff travel and working with nice peers

    Complacency among junior and senior management. Management is dishonest. Punished when certified sick for short periods. Rosters change as much as the Irish weather. Very poor life-work balance and work many unsocial hours

    Pros

    Staff Travel is good, great fellow work colleagues.

    Cons

    Management and operations are terrible. Crew are always left to fend for themselves. Constant pressure put on crew to improve on-time performance and cost cutting measures without any benefits. Long hours, unpredictable rosters.
