The flat structure of the organisation creates a good dynamic. You get to mix with all levels of the hierarchy on a daily level Support functions are great The company seems to be on the up again and has loads of opportunities that you wouldn't find in many other places if you want to progress in your career It's an interesting job and working environment – there's always something happening
The company image on the street is not good, the brand image does not represent how great it is to work for Some very long working days and not enough reward for this Needs to be more organised in the way it organises meetings
It's unusual in being a better place to work than it's reputation would make you think
Pros: There is no class ranking or even level ranking at easyJet. No one parades around thinking that they’re the manager and therefore better than you. This really makes for a very pleasant working environment and good days all around. Because of excellent working relationships between senior management and staff, the company continues to thrive.
Cons: When situations occur that are out of your control, you can expect to not see your loved ones or even home town for quite a couple of hours which can stretch into days in extreme cases. It is also quite difficult to move on to the next level in your career here.
Unusual thing: Sometimes senior staff members ask juniors to keep an eye on other juniors. This is the only real and quite strange problem at easyJet.
Good team spirit at easyJet and you'll be working alongside some talented individuals with a friendly attitude. There are some good career options for bright and self-motivated grafters within the company. Pay's not too bad.
They drive you really, really hard. The pace of work is relentless and so is your workload. The hours can be really demanding and often anti-social. Middle management are slow to respond to new situations and communication difficulties often arise.
