Reviews about "work life balance"Return to all Reviews
- 5.0Dec 2, 2021ManagerCurrent Employee, more than 10 yearsChicago, IL
Inclusion, good opportunities for professional development
Work too many hours and difficult to balance work and personal life

None that i can think of.
Very very hard to be new. No work life balance on top of having to relocate without the ability to transfer. Management was like military, new employee culture was “you’re going to get fired if”.
- 4.0Jul 15, 2019Program ManagerCurrent Employee, more than 10 yearsDenver, CO
Fast-paced, high energy and diverse company. Benefits are excellent including flight benefits. Employee base is extremely talented and great folks to work with. Very big on diversity and inclusion.
Senior leadership needs to do a better job of work/life balance for management and administrative employees.1

Top notch technology and resources Excellent pay and benefits including travel Good advancement opportunities Intelligent workforce and fairly laid back work environment
No real work/life balance even though the technology is available for work from home etc. Very competitive and promotions are therefore more difficult Seems to be more turnover lately1
- 4.0Sept 8, 2022International Flight AttendantCurrent Employee, more than 10 yearsChicago, IL
Some flexibility on days off but high seniority is the way to have a work life balance. The longer you are there the better the pay and schedule you will have. Many Medical and dental options
Being on a reserve status (on call) when you first start flying is exhausting2

Amazing benefits and great career.
Work/Life balance is difficult because you spend a lot of time away from loved ones.
- 5.0Oct 21, 2017Assistant DirectorFormer Employee, more than 10 yearsCleveland, OH
Great culture, great co-workers. Management Team always supportive. Teamwork exceptional. Fast paced numerous opportunities for growth
Work life balance can be tested but when you have a passion for accomplishments it’s your responsibility to manage that aspect.
- 1.0Dec 5, 2023Project ManagerFormer Employee, more than 5 yearsGurgaon, Haryana
You get flat hierarchy and opportunities to work directly into US. They sponsor your Business visa which is the same as Tourist visa and provide opportunities to travel to US which is great. Learning and Exposure is great provided you have reporting directly to US Leadership Work Life balance is good and sometimes it requires you to work till late night in the evenings Office hours are flexible
They have India subsidiary which is IKC which is still expanding. Different teams have different budgets so similar professionals might be working at two different levels and have a lot of difference in compensation. Employee benefits are negligible and only overhyped thing they have is "Standby Travel" i.e. travel if seat is empty on plane which is not good in India and especially if you have to travel with family. Salary is very less compared to other similar industries. Promotions and Growth is driven by timelines and fairly slow. No inhouse cafeteria. Limited parking slots, so it's on first come first basis. Limited opportunities to grow
