    Pros

    Schedule flexibility, good compensation, full benefits, free domestic travel for yourself and family.

    Cons

    Not a lot of flights to/from west coast, airline is transitioning to bigger company and still operating like a mom and pop business.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please revamp the infrastructure to reflect growing operation. We need more spare aircrafts and reserve inflight staff.

    Pros

    The company culture is excellent. Very focused on employee happiness and satisfaction. Great perks, new airplanes, headquarters in New York, non-union.

    Cons

    People love their job so they never leave, making it take time to gain seniority and find opportunities for promotion. some grumpy coworkers, but that's at any job really.

    I have been working at JetBlue full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I've worked in various departments at JetBlue, so I will start with a disclaimer that not all departments are great. However those that live the company values and have strong leadership are great and thrive very well. Crew members who are willing to learn and willingly get to know various parts of the company can be handsomely rewarded with a promotion in a short amount of time.

    Cons

    Operational support analysts have little direction which leads to high turnover or people stuck in the same role for long periods of time. You certainly choose your own direction at JetBlue, and if you don't make the most of it, it could get stale fast. Also, lower than market pay for corporate employees.

    Pros

    JetBlue is a great company to work for because the culture of the company is to listen to and support its emoloyees and offer the best experience for its customers. The company HQ is top of the line and lots of friendly people.

    Cons

    It's hard to complain about a company that has "fun" as one of their values but of course no company is without its short comings. Getting your foot in the door of the company might be hard but once you're there it's even harder to move up unless you network and schmooze with the right people. The company does emphasize that it wants employees that fit the culture but too often I have seen the most qualified be passed over for the more extroverted socialite who might not be as sharp but knows how to light up a room.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing but make sure to reward the hardest workers, not just the popular ones.
