I worked at Gogo full-time

Pros

Standard benefits, better than average holidays and an average pay check.

Cons

A burn out development company. Senior managers wonder why their software is bug-ridden and poor quality. The answer is very simple. Stop your IT managers from reducing their budgets by running their staff ragged.

Gogo wants a huge return on investment without making much investment in building software, retaining talent or giving developers a good work/life balance.

The company also does not pay notice, so if you quit and give a couple fo weeks warning, expect to be sent home and not paid.

If you work in IT at this company, expect to be treated like a possession, not a person.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Go to church. You have some explaining to do.

    I worked at Gogo as a contractor (more than a year)

    Pros

    Company just went public maybe there is hope

    Cons

    Contractors are made to feel like less than human, company functions right on the premises and contractors are excluded, not so bad if they had a policy not to hire the same contractors but they don't., no clear policy a company wide email sometimes excludes them and at other times even the contractors are sent an email and then when they show up are asked to leave......cannot figure this out?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too many chiefs not enough indians, no clear training protocol and not guidance undercutting and literally fighting in bloody water with a pool of sharks some management must enjoy it especially aircraft engineering do not go there....you will regret it

    No opinion of CEO
