    Pros

    Never the same day twice, excellent coworkers / company pride, good group benefits, employee share matching (currently suspended during COVID downturn), bonus of flight passes and options to travel. Instead of just seeing the country and the world, you'll feel intimately connected to some of your favourite cities, with a much more cohesive world view. As a flight attendant, you'll feel fairly well looked after by the company , but your duty is to look after the safety, security, and service experience of each customer... so you'll kind of get back what you put in if you're

    Cons

    There are still plenty of people who want to put those bare feet up, yell at you for something you didn't do and can't change. Learning to bite your tongue can be extremely painful at times. The beginning year(s) can be really demanding and challenging. The entirety of the job becomes better with seniority. You'll have to be fully dedicated and give an uncompromised effort to successfully complete a gruelling few weeks of intense initial training with practical and written exams. As a new recruit, your base is assigned... you are not guaranteed to receive your choice when presented options. None of these are really cons if you understand that your fresh wings have to put in.a lot of practice, and take it as the trial by fire of aviation.. the good news is that your coworkers have been through it and understand.

    Pros

    Flexible career Steady pay raises Flight benefits When you get along with the crew, it can be really fun There are a lot more cons for me personally but admittedly many of them one can adjust to over time.

    Cons

    Culture can be toxic (Us vs Them mentality) Company doesn't innovate, just follows trends Lack of transparency Seniority gets to people's heads Lack of solidarity Processes are a mess and there needs to be significantly more collaboration between departments Not much room for professional growth Reserve for the first year or more can be hard to adjust to (24hr on call basically) Harder to maintain a healthy work life balance in the beginning.
