Management (Current Employee)
SeaTac, WA

ProsAlaska promotes a real family atmosphere, but it's more preach than practice sometimes. If you happen to work for a decent manager, you can take advantage of flexible schedules, commuter benefits and telecommuting. They offer a very generous PTO program for management. This is all at the discretion of your manager.

ConsAlaska has done a lot of hiring from the outside lately. It's become a reitrement home for people from other loser airlines, and that fosters bad feelings from employees trying to get promoted. Alaska also seems to think that anyone in a position of leadership is automatically a good employee, which is not the case.

Advice to Senior ManagementStart hiring qualified people from within the company. They exist and know the culture and dynamic of the company better than anyone from the outside.
