Good company that is still struggling with the shift from being a printing company to a software/data company.

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Englewood, CO

ProsGood work/life balance
Full of good, bright people who strive to make a difference.
Fun and interesting to be part of company that impacts the world of aviation/life as much as Jeppesen does.
Continued influence of parent company, Boeing, shows promise as the company's tries to evolve in a rapidly changing market place.

ConsSenior management doesn't really understand technology development. They don't seem to have an understanding of large, complex technology projects. Consequently they can't provide a lot of clear direction/vision and then get skittish when projects don't proceed as planned.

Company's compensation structure relies too heavily on people wanting to work in aviation and historically might be willing to exchange some financial compensation to do that. Their comp structure is not mature when it comes to the various disciplines that play a part in successful software development.

HR has repeatedly shown that they view humans as resources and not as people. Slow to react when hiring is urgent. They lack knowledge of new disciplines that haven't traditionally been part of an aviation company.

Advice to Senior ManagementCoordinate your product offerings!
* The number of redundant software projects with significant overlap is not indicative of a mature company.
* Your customers expect more integration when buying web-based products or apps. Current offerings are too isolated and lack the unified experience people expect when paying a premium to an industry leader.
