    Pros

    The money is great on European flights!

    Cons

    You will have to sustain long working hours and delays - which is expected in the aviation business. The hierarchy of crew and Galley-FM is probably the company's biggest downfall!

        I have been working at Aer Lingus full-time

        Pros

        The pay for this job is much higher than most other companies. There are travel concessions for staff and family/friends.

        Cons

        They do not look after staff well in situations such as occupational injury and bullying within the company.

        Advice to Management

        Staff need to be looked after better for better morale at work. Management should listen to the voices of staff.

        Pros

        Great co-workers and travel benefits

        Cons

        Management attitude towards staff. Little to no money spent on staff engagement / reward. Zero engagement in new work practices such working from home and no effort put into promoting a work / life balance

        Advice to Management

        Treat staff the same way you treat yourselves and be open to exploring new work practices. It is not the 1980's anymore, company cultures and work practices have changed significantly but Aer Lingus is stuck in the past like its canteen menu. General consensus amongst staff is the only job you should take in Aer Lingus is a pilot job.
