Pros

This is a good company, in the sense of doing good in the world. It's also a good place to work, with a focus on employee satisfaction and professional interaction. They've had a very stable history, with 70+ years of consistent profitability. And it's a challenge as the company transitions to the digital realm.

Cons

Some unnecessary alarmism about profits, uncertainty about direction, and lack of leadership from the executives.

    I have been working at Jeppesen Sanderson as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The projects were very in depth. A wide variety of languages - from C# to Java to C++ - were used. The projects were very encompassing in that they involved anything from heavy OOP programming to low level bit manipulation and storage.

    Cons

    Jumping in, all of the details behind the flight system software can be a little daunting. There are a ton of acronyms. The curve to learn this was at about a month to me. After that, everything else goes smoothly.

    Advice to Management

    Upper management is very friendly. The atmosphere is very welcoming and I saw no elitist attitudes within management.

    Restructuring does not fix the real issues within Jeppesen - Need a change at the Director Level

    I worked at Jeppesen Sanderson full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Jeppesen has some very talented, hard working and loyal employees who have contributed greatly to their past success. Also, the corporate office is in Englewood, CO.

    Cons

    Strong leadership and innovation at the Director level for the most part is non-existent. Directors are more concern about protecting their turf, giving excuses and kissing up to VPs than helping their staff succeed at meeting business goals. Jeppesen talks about being responsive to customers and market needs but their actions do not follow and Directors are not held accountable to produce. If you are able to effectively "spin" and excuse poor or non-performance, you have a great shot at becoming a Director or higher within Jeppesen.

    Advice to Management

    When you restructure again (which seems to happens every 18-24 months), bring in new Directors and hold them accountable to what they say they are going to deliver.
