    A lot of lazy whining coworkers who need to get a real job to appreciate what they have here
    Unattractive cheap tired looking uniforms that don't show us at our best
    Too much focus on seniority and not enough on merit

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Coming from an industry where senior executives didn't even say hello to workers they'd seen around for ten years, it's so refreshing when Dave will just come right up to me, shake my hand and look me in the eye and chat...without looking over my shoulder for someone more important and useful to talk to.

    Pros

    Flexible hours, paid vactions, you make your own schedule . Several breaks and oppurtunities for advancement . No union so they still try to keep it that way

    Cons

    Sometimes lazy co workers , Hard work during busy season. Out in the hot sun. Lifting heavy bags. Have a lot of crap you have to answer for if you make a mistake, no sweeping it under the rug.

    Pros

    Working at JetBlue is not like working at any other company. The focus on the importance of people is palpable. The energy within the company is amazing; people make you feel welcomed, smile and laugh on the elevators and genuinely care about one another. The level of communication, openness and transparency as well as the effort to always do the right thing by people is wonderful. Overall, the leaders ihave created a truly inspiring culture and phenomenal place to work.

    Cons

    Things change so fast it's hard to keep up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you are doing. You are amazing.

    Current Employee - Analyst  in  Long Island City, NY

    Pros

    Great work/life balance and flexibility in the corporate office. Long Island City office is state-of-the-art. Work with some very positive, talented, passionate people. Professional development and promotional/lateral opportunities are available. Travel benefits are always great.

    Cons

    Some people definitely shouldn't be in the positions they're in... not just referring to management roles. Nearly impossible to get fired once you're in, and I think a lot of people take advantage of that.

    Way too much emphasis placed on talent development. Don't get me wrong, *professional* development is extremely important, but a stronger focus needs to be placed on talent acquisition... bring in the right people, both front-line and support side because there are a lot of disgruntled people and otherwise "bad apples" here that aren't going to develop no matter how many Principles of Leadership classes you put them through.

    Recruiting team is very friendly, but the process is long and takes a lot of patience. After applying, don't expect to hear anything for several months if at all.

    Salary/benefits are lower than other industries, but that's part of working for an airline. It's fun and very rewarding, but certainly not a place to get rich. Know what you're getting into before applying, it's not for everyone.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on bringing in the right people! It's vital for our future success...

    Pros

    Very fun company culture. Amazing benefits and competitive pay. I would recommend jetblue as a place to work to anyone.

    Cons

    Company needs to invest more in software to simplify data analysis and aid in real-time recovery operations. Our current software cannot keep up with major weather events and hinders our response

    Current Employee - Corporate Finance  in  Forest Hills, NY
    Current Employee - Corporate Finance in Forest Hills, NY

    Pros

    If you can manage to score a corporate job for this company, jump on it as quickly as possible. I've never seen a place with so many people who truly love what they are doing. Caring for employees is instilled all the way up to senior management and it is real. Fast growing company gives room for fast growth and promotion. huge growth potential, and a lot of healthy challenges that come with fast growth dynamics.

    The super benefits and generous Paid Time Off is just icing on the cake.

    Cons

    The only down side I can think of is that the pay in corporate may be below what is typical in other corporations if you're a financial person.

    Pros

    Our values. Safety, integrity, passion, caring and fun. Jetblue lives by them and so do we the crew members. I love the flexibility and the commitment from top management to create a healthy and pleasant work environment. They value our opinion and do their best to make us feel that we are a big contributor to our success. I am looking forward to staying with jetblue til I retire.

    Cons

    Expanding too fast, but the last couple of year this has been under control. There is really not many cons. The positive out weights the negative by a mile.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Start looking to fly over seas. Get bigger airplanes, but stay focus. I would like to see us fly all over the world and share the jetblue experience throughout. I belive that at some point we're going to have to do it just to be able to compete.
