Pros

Most employees are very nice.

Cons

It's very hard to move around in the company because there's so much favoritism. It's emphasized internal candidates will be treated differently, but their application process filters out internal candidates. So it's very hard to move forward without knowing the right people.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Upper management needs to start recognizing current employees. The lack of attention has been causing many current employees to start looking for advancement elsewhere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Never forget what the airline means to Alaskans. It is more than just transporting people from place to place. For Alaskans, this airline is an essential link in the supply chain, and they often rely on its cargo operations for transporting basic necessities to and from remote villages. Although it is primarily a passenger airline, senior leaders must not forget the crucial role its Cargo Operations department plays.
