I have been working at Alaska Airlines

Pros

Flight benefits are great and getting better. Good Medical/Dental. Fair pay with longevity.

Cons

Some middle management tries to manage through fear and intimidation. Decisions are made without enough consultation with the people who do and know the job. They want to bust the union

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Listen to workers. Learn the job you are managing before making decisions about changes.

    I have been working at Alaska Airlines

    Pros

    Great benefits and co-workers. Used to have a great company culture.

    Cons

    The culture has changed now that the company keeps going through re-org after re-org. The company is becoming less productive because people are fearing for their jobs. Lots of negativity and a lack of trust in mgmt

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Don't just think short term. We posted one of the best profits in the industry, don't make everything seem so "peachy" if you keep letting more and more people go. Tell the truth so people can plan ahead.

    A company that prides itself on customer service and a small, home-town 'feel' while competing with legacy carriers.

    I worked at Alaska Airlines full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Free travel for employees and annual performance bonuses. Good vacation and health benefits and close to one hundred destinations to fly to.

    Cons

    Lower compensation offset by free travel opportunities. Bonuses are tied to performance metrics, which are wound very tight. Opportunity for advancement is extremely limited.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Company is too eager to hire from the outside vs. creating good career-pathing from within for dedicated employees. Turnover for senior employees with higher compensation levels is frequent, in favor of younger employees and lower salaries. Company values are written well but not applied evenly across divisions.
