    I have been working at Virgin Atlantic Airways full-time for more than 20 years

    Pros

    Brand Image, colleagues, travel benefits, building

    Cons

    Prehistoric IT, no clear path for development, Lagging behind competition, constantly changing strategy and never allow time for changes to bed in before changing again

    Advice to Management

    Trim management levels, become a PROPER business not a billionaire mans play thing. Get rid of the old staff and cabin crew who are too comfortable and change averse to let you move forward.

    I worked at Virgin Atlantic Airways part-time

    Pros

    NO PROS AT ALL! THIS IS THE TYPE OF BUSINESS THAT TAKES ADVANTAGE OF PEOPLE IN DESPERATE NEED OF A JOB!

    Cons

    This company is an affront to the human being! They have the guts to pay 10.17 per hour for people who speaks 2 to 3 languages, standing, lifting heavy weight, with NO BENEFITS!

    Advice to Management

    Get your facts straight, you are in The U.S. and not in England! Slavery time is over long ago. You should have some respect for human being and pay a decent pay rate!
