Big changes to working conditions
Cabin Crew (Current Employee) –  London Heathrow Airport, Greater London5 October 2017
BA have changed their employment conditions and are no longer the great employer they once were. They don't encourage cabin crew to stay for long, thereby saving money on sick pay, maternity and pension.
Pros
Travel and cheap flights if you can afford them.
Cons
Long hours, bad pay

Not an enjoyable company to work for
Cabin Crew (Current Employee) –  London Heathrow Airport, Greater London29 September 2017
No work life balance, you are just a number and they will not acomodate you in any way shape or form. You get treated very poorly and are overworked. Very unpleasant atmosphere

Upper management do not appreciate their staff.
Cabin Crew (Former Employee) –  Heathrow25 September 2017
I absolutely LOVED my job, but the low wages and disrespect from upper management at British Airways is shocking. Almost feel I was forced to leave a job I enjoyed because I couldn't cope financially or with how how we were treated.

I SUPPORT STRIKING BA MIXED FLEET CREW.

BA City Flyer
Cabin Crew (BA CityFlyer) (Former Employee) –  London City Airport18 September 2017
You are worked into the ground.

The rosters are issued and then changed constantly during the month.

No work life balance.

Managers do not care. No 121's just left to get on with it unless you do something wrong.

Pay is poor for the hours you are expected to do and the number of flights is crazy you are left so tired.

Lots of single days off with working 6 days either side.

You are better applying to heathrow or gatwick
Pros
Non
Cons
Rosters are issued and changed constantly no work life balance.

Varied and fun lifestyle
Cabin Crew (Former Employee) –  London Heathrow Airport, Greater London4 September 2017
It's a great lifestyle to live and not for those who like the normal 9-5 life. Not a very good work/home life balance as I was barely ever home. It's a great opportunity for those with a love for travel and people.
Pros
Staff travel
Cons
Barely home

Great, fun job
Long haul Cabin Crew and then Long haul Purser (Former Employee) –  Heathrow, Greater London31 August 2017
A fantastic job but a very large company so employees are very much a number rather than in individual.
Good pension and flight benefits. Great staff and team work but no one really knows their manager and therefore support or building a relationship with that person can be tricky.
All in all, a great job and professional company.
Pros
Great team work
Cons
Long, unsociable hours

Good if yound and still live at home
Mixed Fleet Cabin Crew (Former Employee) –  London Heathrow Terminal 514 August 2017
There's a reason people are striking, the money isn't great, but more of a factor are the terms and scheduling. If you are <24 and live at home, go for it, if not - avoid.

Don't care about their staff
Cabin Crew (Former Employee) –  Heathrow, Greater London11 July 2017
There's no individuality and no respect for their employees. They have no loyalty towards employees and change the rules as they go along. On paper it seems a nice place to work with career advancement but the reality is quite different.
Pros
cheaper flights, holiday
Cons
low pay

Fun job for 1 year
Cabin Crew (Former Employee) –  London Heathrow Airport, Greater London21 June 2017
Its a great job, you'll meet loads of new people and experience countless things that you would have never dreamed of being able to afford every day you go to work. On the flip side the training is hard and getting started is really tricky. You'll be extremely sleep deprived, you'll be completely unaware of what to do for the first 6 months and the pay is pretty minimal.
Its definitely worth doing for a year or two. You'll gain loads of invaluable skills and experiences. You'll also have staff travel benefits, so hopefully you can enable someone else to share your journey.
Pros
staff travel benefits, new experiences, good customer service experiences, travel
Cons
long hours, sleep deprivation, poor pay, unsociable hours

Bad pay and exhausting, but being paid to see the world!
Mixed Fleet Cabin Crew (Current Employee) –  London Heathrow Terminal 530 May 2017
Terrible pay conditions for Mixed a Fleet colleagues and company treat colleagues as a number not a person. The management style is too hands off, having never met my manager in a year of working there.
Pros
See the world and get paid to do it.
Cons
Exhausting and unsocialble hours

Amazing opputunity but not long term
Cabin crew (Current Employee) –  London Heathrow27 April 2017
Fun lifestyle but competitive job with poor pay.

Amazing employees.

Unpredictable scheduling where you can work long hours, with minimum days off one month and have practically no flights the next.

Overall positive.
Pros
Staff travel, diverse people, fun company
Cons
Busy rostering, poor salary
