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

Pros

Good 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.

Cons

Senior 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 ManagementAdvice

Coordinate 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.

    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.

    Current Employee - Software Engineer Intern in Englewood, CO

    I have been working at Jeppesen Sanderson as an intern for 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 ManagementAdvice

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