    I worked at Qantas full-time

    Pros

    - Cheap flights, not as cheap as they used to be
    - non-abusive workplace
    - Good pay for those on legacy EBAs

    Cons

    - salary is below industry, 25% more outside
    - when negotiating for higher pay HR/ internal recruitment justify it with staff travel
    - staff travel is hard to get these days due to improvements in optimising the network. Good for the company and job security, yet it doesn't help when that was supposedly a part of the package
    - Lower tier managers get paid the same as their staff due to EBA penalties etc. Its worth considering not being a manager
    - Career development is limited for all employees with very little study support provided
    - 50% of exec bonuses if paid are in shares. If you leave within two years of receipt the shares they are taken back. This means that you always have 50% of the last two years to lose if you chose to take another job.
    - Internal movement is all about who you know, not stretch targets or developing a well rounded employee.

    Advice to Management

    - You lose the high performers and retain those who couldn't be bothered finding another job

    Pros

    You get to work in a unique area, aviation is definitely different from other fields I've worked in. As an intern we got to work on some cool and actually impactful projects to the company as a whole. Decent mentoring from more senior members of the staff. Corporate staff are treated well, definitely seems like a place you could feel safe working at long term.

    Cons

    Older corporate culture, expect to wear suit pants and a shirt at minimum (no tie thankfully). Pay is lower than what you would get at other organisations.
