I have been working at Alaska Airlines

Pros

Great VP for IT. There are [only] a couple of bright spots in management.

Cons

Too much complacency and acceptance of status-quo. Promotions are equal regardless of performance and achievement. H/R works hard to low-ball promotion rate. IT is often the obstacle for other divisions. IT likes to limit choices with convoluted policies driven by leaders that have little care for customer service. Leaders are driven by an overly conservative approach that only benefits the leaders and not the company.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

It's all about the customer. Please work to enable rather than hinder the company's progress. Go out of the way to provide solutions instead of being paralyzed with indecision. Limit the effect of your micro-managers so that innovation and high-performers can flourish.

    I have been working at Alaska Airlines

    Pros

    Good travel benefits, great co-workers, cross departmental movement and promotion, and flexible scheduling, that's if you are a part of management.

    Cons

    Favoritism in the upper management ranks, a lack of diversity in management, and low pay compared to the same careers in other companies.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please look at diversifying management, the next time you have a departmental meeting or team meeting look around and see if diversity is part of the "Alaska spirit".
