Good, working towards great

Manager (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

I have been working at Alaska Airlines full-time for more than 10 years

ProsThe employees are great to work with, Opportunities to work in various locations, Focused on the customer, Most leaders willing to make tough decisions for the greater good, The benefits are very good (vacation time and travel especially), Leadership is focused on being a great company and not just settling for being a great airline

ConsLack of accounability at all levels, Compensation is low for same jobs in other companies and industries, Software and hardware are antiquated and create productivity issues, Many groups still operate in silos and actively stop efforts to work cross-divisionaly

Advice to Senior ManagementWe have had a great few years, but few of them have had any effort on improving the work environment from the employee's perspective. The focus has been "what should we do" and then determining "how are we going to convince everyone this is the right plan".

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Broken systems, no accountability, lack of focus

IT Project Manager III (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA

I have been working at Alaska Airlines


Pros: Personal time off, flexible schedule, occasional telecommuting Cons: IT systems are old and in constant need of repair. Very limited investment in improving behind-the-scenes operations. As far as project management goes,… Advice to Senior Management: Focus! Implement and enforce use of a labor planning/time… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend More
