Pros

Clean work environment, good hours, some employees are friendly although employees associate with each other in cliques.

Cons

Average to below average compensation. Heavy workload. Department runs with a short staff. Not a good return on investment for the employee. Can find better work load / pay balance elsewhere.

Advice to Management

Don't BS people telling them they are going to be around longer than the agreed contract length, then hire separate permanent employees 2 weeks later for the same department. Its very two faced backstabbery. It sucked I took a pay cut to come work for you, but I am glad to be gone and have found a better return on investment of my work hours- elsewhere.

    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 Management

    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

    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 Management

    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.
