I worked at Alaska Airlines full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

They offer great medical and 401k match programs. Flight benefits are great too. The employees care about one another like a family.

Cons

Station employees work long hours and are paid low wages because their union is not strong in comparison to other airlines.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make hiring/firing decisions with employee's needs and ramifications to them as your focus instead of over-valuing the financial implications to the company.

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

    Pros

    Work life balance is a Pro. This is very helpful if you want to work with folks that only do 40 hours/week. It's also a friendly work environment (to its detriment).

    Cons

    It's not a place to go if you're interested in being treated as a profession IT person. Recommendations are only given value when it comes from an outsider under the guise of Consultant.

    Very little is expected of the personnel. This leaves an environment riddled with issues and a leadership team that is not truthful to upper level management. It's the Emperor Has No Clothes moment.

    There are many managers/directors here that is much more focused on fear and not making mistakes. Therefore, we have many systems experiencing technology debt.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in your good people.
