    I worked at Lufthansa Technik full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Exposure to a wide range of MRO services and products, very knowledgable and experienced people working there, chances to work globally.

    Cons

    It is a bureaucratic company and for an international, global company, they are too German-centric. Changes of progressing high up the food chain are limited if you are not German. There is a management pool there that the senior roles are plucked from so the same faces just move from post to post, no matter how incompetent they may be.

    Advice to Management

    Open up the company to a more global management dynamic.

    Pros

    LHT is a great company and industry leader; 401k match is top notch. They offer a great product and high prestige in the market.

    Cons

    Poor pay compared to market - they match pay to German standards which are lower thanks to generous welfare state. Germans are often brought in to take key roles - it seems there is a high mistrust of Americans. For example all major sales positions in North America are held by Germans. No promotion possibility for American sales employees. In my time almost all young talented Americans left the company; remainder were...

    Advice to Management

    Promote local employees and stop bringing in germans for every position possible. Adapt to local market in terms of salary or continue to see exodus of talented young employees. LHT is a great company and people want to stay, but feel they have no future and look elsewhere.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Lufthansa Technik full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    The only good thing is the brand name

    Cons

    1.Worst politics starting from CEO to interns. 2. Bunch of incompetent people running the show( managers, co-ordinators) 3. Unjust norms and policies tailor made by Human Resource which bends towards a play of favouritism. 4. Incompetent Human Resources( not paying salary on time and unjust deductions made from salary.) 5. Low pay with minimal or no growth opportunities within the organization.

    Advice to Management

    Provide career opportunities for employees based on merit and competency instead favouritism based on your mother tongue which has been the trend in the past years. Improve employee retention policies. Finally please change the coordinators and managers
