I have been working at Gogo full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Intellectually challenging across all functions
incredibly high bar for talent with great results
Better than average pay and benefits
Better than average career opportunities

Cons

A lot is expected, this isn't a company in a maintenance/mature stage on the growth timeline; 40 hours a week probably won’t get most jobs done. If you work here, you have to be flexible and have thick skin, things change fast

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stay in touch with all employees through communication on strategy for growth and development. Don't be shy about syaing what works and what hasn't

    I worked at Gogo as a contractor

    Pros

    Nice locations of properties both in Itasca and Irvine.

    Cons

    Managers uses favoritism instead of performance of an employee in determining who will be let go. Upper management does not consult his/her managers on who they will save from layoff. Some managers have anger issues, needs to be trained on how to communicate with his/her people or vendors. Some managers may treat you nice in front of you but you can feel that he/she is not sincere.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please consult with your manager on who you should keep or let go. Gogo lost allot of good hard-working engineers and kept the bad ones.

    Pros

    Interesting product that, with the right innovations, has a lot of potential.

    Cons

    -Positions are described to sound very appealing but the reality is that there is a lot of dysfunction.
    -Opportunities for advancement are presented as being there but the reality is they are few and far between.
    -The respect that candidates are given during the recruiting process quickly disappears once you are hired.
    -Crazy expectations about the amount of hours you are expected to work.
    -Compensation is adequate but don't get fooled by what amounts to a very optimistic and idealized presentation of the overall compensation package and benefits that occurs during the hiring process.
    -Lots of questions about future of a product that is actually in a pretty perilous position. Lots of market penetration but ask around and you'll find that there is a great deal of customer satisfaction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Respect newcomers and solicit their viewpoints. Allow employees to have a more flexible schedule.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
