    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at KLM full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Excellent exposure and growth prospects, with continuous trainings and learning opportunities Includes good travel opportunities around the world .

    Cons

    The Airline Industry specially in Europe has been in the RED for a while now. Downsizing and cost cutting measures are applied regularly resulting in uncertainties for the people

    Advice to Management

    Quality of Staff strength is the biggest asset. Try and retain knowledge, experience and good people. Going forward this would be the only difference between the best and the number 2.

    I have been working at KLM full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Good company CEO, local management not that great.

    Cons

    Bad increment, high turnover for new staff, Air france constantly going on strike, which hurts our remuneration package for the year.

    Advice to Management

    Group management, please try to prevent the strikes. Are strikes some kind of benefit that I am not aware off?

      Disapproves of CEO

      I have been working at KLM full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Only one: you get discounted flights after 6 months of working.

      Cons

      Company feels like it's still in the 80's. They do a lot of manual work pen and paper. The teams are very disorganised, and for data scientists the work is not great. Quality of data is poor, there is not much room for machine learning applications, it's mostly analysing (poor quality) data and showing plots to stakeholders.
