Pros

For technical people, you will have an opportunity to work on complex technical environment and multiple third party companies that makes the job very interesting. Always plenty to do.

Cons

Project priorities weren't defined, and very lean IT environment based on work and what you had to support.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Clearly define priorities to execute on what will make the greatest impact to Alaska Air

    Great Brand but Frustrating Middle Management Career

    I have been working at Alaska Airlines

    Pros

    Decent benefits, including flights (when not full)

    Cons

    Middle management is squeezed to perform more and more with less while upper management enjoys secretive "perks" and front line (union) are paid well through contracted wages and benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work toward increased transparency, honesty, and internal succession planning. Train, mentor, and promote from the inside to gain trust and loyalty. Performance Based Pay (formerly profit sharing) should be the same percentage of wages or salary company-wide and not higher for upper management.

    Pros

    Free travel, great job while I was in school, down to earth employees, often times it was fun to work.

    Cons

    The positions I was in was unionized so the higher seniority people could sometimes be lazy and you had to make up for the slack. All while they get paid a lot more than you for doing the same job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No personal feel to any management feedback or job reviews.
