    I have been working at Virgin Atlantic Airways full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Benefits are great - 7 free flights a year Bonus is great if you can get through the impossible list of requirements to achieve it

    Cons

    There is no work life balance - the contact centre is open 24 hrs a day every day, therefore if you like your public holidays, think twice about applying. To progress within the company is impossible unless you know somebody higher up, otherwise they won't look at you twice.

    I worked at Virgin Atlantic Airways full-time

    Pros

    7 free flights a year and you get to work with some genuine people that want to help.

    Cons

    You only get promotions if you're in with the correct people. The ones that want to climb the ladder never seem to get noticed.

    Advice to Management

    Employ supervisors that actually want to be there and that aren't just there for the pay cheque.
