Pros

Very caring, very committed, very engaged team.
The work environment can be very fun.
The product is very cool!
There are many unwritten perks to working at Jeppesen.

Cons

Many leaders need to be vacated from their chairs and returned to working in the trenches (if they ever have).
Systems are antiquated; policies outdated.
Has a small company feel where there is sometimes some serious rumor mill that is detrimental to others' careers.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus! Stop trying to work on so many "Highest Priority" projects. If they are all the most important then none of them end up the most important.

You need advice from an outside consultant to help reign in your strategy, mission, vision & values before you will ever see gains in efficiencies.

    Pros

    Great company, good benefits, wonderful people to work with.

    Cons

    You have to leave the company to be paid within your correct salary range. Even when promoted within the company the salary is not adjusted to company standard salary ranges. New hires are often paid higher and adjustments to salary is rarely considered. Difficult to keep good people on IT teams.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider the reasons most individuals leave the company and then return within a year or two. In almost every case it is due to compensation.

    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.
