Pros

- Free flights - people I work with I get along well with

Cons

- Directors are still detached, selfish, and ignore recommendations from their management and experienced people, leaving those people to mop up poor decisions - A lot of managers don't escalate, let the directors walk all over them and make decisions that they know are not optimal - Certain directors (Infrastructure services) are allowed to hire people from their old companies directly into management positions that are created specifically for them and in some cases unnecessary, even if they're not qualified - Directors place unqualified people into certain positions and levels (architect) simply to say that there are career opportunities - There is high risk of retaliation when you bring concerns to your manager or Director (poor reviews without clear reasons or followup/engagement from your Crewleader) - There are no promotions. You must apply for a position, then you're not given competitive salaries, but a minimal increase based on your current salary. There's also risk of retaliation if you then refuse the promotion. - Salaries are non-competitive with local NYC market, IT is having extreme difficult acquiring talent, and talent retention is difficult. - Talent management is among the worst I've seen in any IT department, subject matter experts are now detached and have no incentive to engage in current projects and initiatives - Extreme lack of vision in the director level in terms of overall strategy, lots of money spent in the wrong places or poorly spent (Infrastructure)

Advice to Management

People department needs to pay closer attention to what's going on in departments, specifically IT. There needs to be more ways for Crewmembers to state their concerns or issues without possibility retaliation from their management. It seems the CIO had good intentions, but he brought in and moved a couple of ineffective people into key roles that has IT unable to engage and meet the rapidly changing needs of the business.

    Pros

    employees are fabulous in spite of working conditions

    Cons

    Management gets more hostile everyday

    Advice to Management

    please explain how Alaska who you say is in the sweet spot with us, can quadruple our profit with less planes and 15% higher costs. Tell us how you agreed to a pay review process and then broke your word. Tell us how you plan to attract any pilot with 15% under industry average wages, the worst health care in the industry and below average retirement.

    Pros

    IN the beginning, company had 5 values and stood by them, was amazing to be there. But as company grew, direction and treatment of employees lost.

    Cons

    Management as be turned over to other airline execs., treatment of employees is horrible, healthcare is created by JB, not a healthcare company. Profits over people is now the norm. Fear runs thru the employees to keep their job

    Advice to Management

    In your goal to gain money you lost your vision of what the company stood for, Nelman's dream turned to a Barger nightmare wih his incompetant management firing people with no say or reason why. You go against the grain ur immediately removed no reason why.
