Pros: overall package, salary and bonuses
Cons: long hours, time differences, jetlag
There is never a typical day at work, as my work environment is very dynamic. I have a service sequence and guidance that me and my colleagues follow, however great situational awareness is required at all times.
Starting from destinations that are always different we continue to most of colleagues that are always new. As a manager in such environment it is extremely challenging to adapt your leadership approach to different teams. Thankfully training and experience prove to be a good base to successful outcomes of different team related tasks.
The hardest part of the job so far I could say is the flying, coming with all difficulties for the body, sleeping patterns and time differences.
And of course the most enjoyable part of the job is the traveling and exposing yourself to different cultures, cusines and art. Finding and creating lasting friendships and relationships isn't always easy but very fruitful given the diversity of people met along the way.
