    Pros

    they really try to do their best to satisfy their employees

    Cons

    with recent management changes, many employees are somehow disgruntled and believe that the company is cutting benefits to save money. not so true.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    just be there for your employees, if your employees aren't performing well, then you are not performing well as a manager

    I have been working at JetBlue full-time for more than a year

    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.

    Pros

    Young company with a great work environment. Great travel benefits (free flights on jetBlue plus several agreements with other airlines).

    Cons

    The compensation side leaves a lot to be desired. No bonuses, very little profit sharing, and very little opportunity for significant raises. Few promotion opportunities.

    I have been working at JetBlue part-time for more than a year

    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

    Great brand name, flight benefits, culture is great, NY office is awesome

    Cons

    Depending on the dept the work life balance may not be so great, technology for the support centers has not caught up to the rest of the company

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The support centers need some additional attention and some changes have to be made to be more efficient. You cannot continue to grow yet still do things the same way you used to.

    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.
