    I worked at Alaska Airlines part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Employee's really do care about the customers and definitely travel experience is wonderful. The friendships turn into close family protective committed unity. The bond of love for work and family carries the work load pass the above and beyond mark. Truly the foundation of Alaska Airline holds true today! Caring, Customer Service, and Loyalty that's Alaska.

    Cons

    The stress of the airline business is the reality at Alaska as well. Pilot strikes cause delays or cancelation and that makes the public very stressful to work with, which robs the whole travel experience awful.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to acknowledge the efforts and hard work the employees do. Add bonus's and incentives to help compensate to harshness of the stress the public puts on the employees. Give back upgrade decision making to employees to customers to bring back repeat business. It's the little things that count!!

    I have been working at Alaska Airlines full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Not a highly stressful culture, good peers (for the most part) and flight perks are handy.

    Cons

    Not very visionary leadership, obsessed so much with the operation that there is no room to be a great airline.

    Advice to Management

    Show some vision in where you want the airline to go in the next 5-7 years, don't continually repeat the same 'focus on doing what we do well' message.
