    Pros

    JetBlue has an amazing culture and truly lives by its 5 core values of Safety Caring Integrity Passion and Fun! I always felt like the company valued my work. Very rarely did I have a bad day at work. Lots of upward career opportunities once you get in!

    Cons

    Because JetBlue is a smaller primarily domestic carrier, if you're interested in International work, it may not be the place for you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to focus on your core values, Whenever anyone asks me what I think about working for JetBlue, I always emphasize how much importance was placed on the values and what a difference that made. My current airline has a similar value system, but it is not emphasized or believed in the way it was at JetBlue and that makes a huge difference. Most people could not even name our 4 corner stones.

    Pros

    Promotes from within and really tries to help crew members advance to their highest potential.

    Cons

    Sometimes you do not share the same views (business related) as your manager and that can affect the work balance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Do not promote micro managing.

    Pros

    A excellent culture with strong values that are executed on, obviously you can fly for free, health care is available and communication from the top down is very visible.

    Cons

    The health care programs is horrendous, on the operating side of the company most managers are reactive though that is changing and your sick and vacation bank is one and the same.

    Just try to keep things constant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just do the right thing, which I know you will.To everyone that bitches about Jetblue you have no clue how good you have it. I have been with them for 12 years and it's been an amazing 12 years. They have always stuck by me and have done the right thing. It pisses me off that these whiners cry that their job sucks. Do us all a favor and leave because you're the one dragging this company down not the management. I watched my father go through 5 crappy airlines that didn't care about him. He would KILL to work for us but alas he's too old now. Ok I'm done with my rant. I highly recommend working at Jetblue.
    Thanks,
