Current Employee – been working at Alaska Airlines
Pros – Alaska 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.
Cons – Alaska 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 Management – Start hiring qualified people from within the company. They exist and know the culture and dynamic of the company better than anyone from the outside.
