    I have been working at Gogo

    Pros

    Gogo is a rush- in the best sense of the word. The work is fast paced and refreshing, requires focus and tenacity, and I continue to be inspired daily by what we are accomplishing. I feel people’s ideas/opinions are respected, find there are growth opportunities for those that seek out ways to positively impact the business, and appreciate the flexibility offered.

    Cons

    Buckle your seatbelt. For those that enjoy evolution and growth, Gogo is a great place to be. But it’s not for everyone. If you don’t easily adapt or are not open to change- this wouldn’t be a place for you. Same goes for work load, with all the new ideas and possibilities, the work load can challenging but manageable.

    I have been working at Gogo full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The company is growing by leaps and bounds every year. With international expansion and new products being offered the sky is the limit for Gogo. Gogo really wants to create an excellent company culture for employees and had introduced this with added benefits, social activities and a move to downtown Chicago from the suburbs!

    Cons

    With growth comes pains. Management hasn't figured out where everyone fits so roles are not clearly defined. Growth paths aren't clear either, management is top heavy so its sometimes hard for employees to move up.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create a clear definition of roles for all employees and foster a clearer path for growth. within the company. Recruit from within instead of hiring outside and being so top heavy with management.

    I worked at Gogo as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    I worked as an intern during the summer of 2013 (total of 6 months). There were about a dozen of us in different departments. The company was very welcoming. All of my fellow interns seemed to share similar experiences: good people, welcoming, room for growth.

    The HR department was very proactive. They regularly held informational meetings and also hosted 2 company events for all the interns at a Golf Driving Range. I thought that was a nice gesture.

    The company extended the offer of full-time employment after graduation to all of us.

    Cons

    The work load was random. Sometimes I would have a consistency of projects and tasks, other times I was unoccupied. Too keep from sitting idle I would periodically ask my managers for work and most of the time they would allow me join their projects.

    The company was just going public, so there was a lot of shifting of positions and "chains of command". It made it difficult to ascertain the order of things.

    I have been working at Gogo

    Pros

    Cannot think of any. No work life balance.

    Cons

    Operations Team's Managers and Directors are incompetent, unprofessional and inexperienced. Only know the buzz words, cannot execute on anything.
    Working for this company is the waste of my time and talent. Low compensation.
