    Pros

    Headed in the right direction. Great outlook, leader in the industry. Extremely fast paced. If you are used to the old giant corporate way of doing things, this isn't a place for you. Competitive and fun!

    Cons

    Slow at getting the wrong people out the door. other than that, i have nothing bad to say.

    Pros

    Gogo really cares about their employees. They are always thinking of fun, creative ways to do nice things for their employees or offer new benefits. They do company breakfasts, offer $100 monthly commuter benefits, free emergency day care, and have social gatherings. The people are so friendly at this company and you can tell they are proud to say they are Gogo employees.

    Cons

    Because of the large amount of growth in short period of time we continue to go through growing pains. Still trying to figure out best ways to organize departments and get people in best roles to help company be successful.

    Advice to Management

    Develop a curriculum for Manager development training. There are so many new managers that really need guidance on how to best lead their teams. A structured training program would be really beneficial.

    Pros

    Great work/life ethic within a fast paced leading edge technology company. Moving downtown to be in the center of business and an active lifestyle. People are very supportive and always willing to help understand the products, services and language of our business.

    Cons

    Rapid growth means fast paced activity requiring rapid start-up. You must be willing to run with the herd or you will be left behind. Not for the timid or complacent.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to improve the onboarding process. Give newbies a deeper dive into the products and services offered. An overview of frequently used acronyms would be very useful.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to grow your teams, even those that are performing at a high level. It will allow you to build out a future group of great talent if you supplement your all-stars with hungry learners.
