    Pros

    There's plenty of money in the bank. You'll be bombarded by how profitable the company is, how successful a particular market is, or how a market is being outright abandoned wholesale.

    Cons

    The reason the company is profitable is you.

    It's actually a miracle that the company is profitable at all, given the critical dysfunction of the IT/development process. But the company only answers to shareholders, not internal employees, and somehow the value of the stock went up throughout the course of a 4 hour+ website outage that also disabled internal booking tools. An issue which is a fantastic example of the issues with the deployment process. Test *all* deployments before releasing to production!

    Pros

    Exceptional front line employees make the company run, despite upper management decisions.

    Cons

    Upper management does not support the efforts of the front line staff.

    Pros

    Not many if any all. I guess an okay starting job for college grad.

    Cons

    Under paid and over worked.

    Advice to Management

    Start caring about employees

    Pros

    As expected, the people are the only redeeming quality of this company.

    Cons

    Management is a circular firing squad sprinkled with intrigue, nepotism, and incompetence.

    Advice to Management

    Million spent on IT. Million going to friends of IT management. Not much product being returned. Lot's of lip service in upper IT management, and con men. Senior execs have no clue just how bad they are being taken.....

    Pros

    Nothing is good about this company or IT

    Cons

    worst place to ever work in IT. Management is about as bad as it gets. At all levels there is nothing redeeming about any of them. They like to point fingers and then yell at each other for pointing fingers. They take no responsibility for anything done and blame everyone else even putting it down on the employees.

    Advice to Management

    not worth the typing

    Conform, kiss ass, and keep your head down; a lot of managers not a lot of leaders.

    Pros

    Good, and in some cases truly brilliant, co-workers in a friendly and unique work environment. Nice facilities, reasonable pay and decent travel benefits. High visibility to the highest levels of management. Exciting industry.

    Cons

    Some departments standardize an unrealistic work/life balance (60 hour weeks with no breaks is not uncommon and in some departments expected). Benefits are almost laughable, and time-off is near non-existent.

    Management is very critical with little vested interest in enriching employees. The culture embraces high turnover rather than molding employees into assets. This is a "Hire 'em, Grind 'em, get rid of 'em" company.

    Advice to Management

    You are failing to see the costs with treating human capital as a dispensable asset. If more than 50% of employees will not see their one year anniversary of hire it would appear that there is a fundamental breakdown in leadership. Be realistic of the needs of your people. C-level managers are stepping on throats to get closer to one of the, entirely too many, VP titles.

    It is alarming that no one can see the problem that will inevitably prevent Allegiant from ever being anything more than the low-cost, low-performance air carrier that it is.

    If transparency is one of the Company's core values then how do you fail to see how poorly some of the managers treat their subordinates? Or, do you just not care?

    They only hire submissive yes people, that will not question authority.

    Pros

    Fly free, if the 30 year old planes are not broke or delayed by 12 hours, but they fly to holes in the earth.

    Cons

    Minimum wage, mismanagement, REMEMBER “Value Jet” same company. He just moved it to NV and changed the name.

    Advice to Management

    For God’s sack, stop and think about people’s lives and not the shareholders for once

    Pros

    Associates are great, only thing that makes the job worthwhile.

    Cons

    Does not hire women into positions of power. Recently, only hiring younger workers. "good ole boy network" at the top. You will overhear references to female body parts, partner preferences, (in their most vulgar form) etc., in the hallways. Only a matter of time till the place gets sued. Shame, would be a good place if they replaced these obvious negatives.

    Invest something in your employees or atleast give the impression you actually give a crap!

    Pros

    You get to fly to Bozeman MT for free if there is an empty seat and the plane is on time. Do not tell any passengers you are an employee if you know what is good for you.

    Cons

    Major disfunction at all levels of the company. No transparency at all.

    They treat the flight attendants and pilots like garbage that they throw out daily. Flight Attendants and Pilots are going to strike this year to try and get basic benefits like Vacation during your first year.

    BEWARE - THEY DO NOT TELL YOU THAT THEY DO NOT GIVE RAISES EVER. IF YOU GET OFFERED A JOB ASK ABOUT RAISES THEY DO NOT GIVE THEM.

    I and a fellow employees have been here for 5 years and never got a raise. They tell you you can earn a bonus but it is only $300.

    Health insurance is horrible - does not cover anything.

    There is NO job security and they told me that during my review.

    As a full time employee I take direction from both the CIO and his girlfriend (A CONTRACTOR )and it is seldom the same direction.

    Go to Facebook and read the customer reviews if you don't believe me.

    Trust me this place is a mad house!

    Advice to Management

    The biggest game is: Either you suck up to the CEO and not have to work or if you cant get close enough to the CEO you better start looking for a new job.
