Nice Colleagues but Poor management

Long pattern to and from Hong Kong . Always full loaded with passengers and very busy flights. Everything seems to be okay before covid.After Covid , company closed base and redundant crews so suddenly.

Cathay pathetic

Low paid company with rotten working atmosphere. Long working hours, low salary, stupid rules make your life so tough. Only have 14 days of annual leave per annum. Some of the senior staffs are unfriendly and mean.

OK if its your first job

under pay job and company (the superior) does not respect staff. Easy to make friends with colleagues and get cheap tickets for travel. other than that, please avoid.

Stressful workplace

Stressful but you get discounted tickets on travels for family and friends. You get used to the hours you work which is super long and you get very jetlagged


Discounted travelling


Long hours extreme pressures

Good working environment inflight

Cathay Pacific is my life. I worked there for 15 years. I enjoyed all the benefits that comes with it after working for more than 10 years. I am still enjoying my travel benefits till today, my children and my husband also included in this travel benefits. Well done Cathay Pacific, I am always missing the good old days flying over Kai Tak Airport overlooking the people’s washing line. I have the best memories being working and living in Hong Kong, thanks to this successful airline,


Good travel benefits and ood tax free food allowances


Understandably long working hours due to long haul flights and destination

Biased managers and blaming culture

Cathay Pacific is an exceptional Airline( if you are a customer ) that promotes Great Customer service .I mat some incredible people working there and made some friends for life . They are Incredibly strict , not everybody got fair chances to progress plus they implement constant disciplinaries for everything and blaming culture.Every supervisor is afraid of the next one up and when something goes wrong everybody is quick to shift the blame.Overtime wasn't well paid and you are expected to do it due to the nature of the job.Many people got promoted because friendly with management but they had no idea on how to manage people at all and would often go against procedures to please customers but then they would force you to follow procedures ( to look good with customers themselves).Overall not worth joining now as things have changed and not many benefits left ....... just stress


Used to get discounted tickets


Biased Managers, bullying, blaming culture, high turnover of staff
