    I worked at Jeppesen Sanderson full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Great colleagues, great location. It was nice having offices in Europe.

    Cons

    "Good ol' boys" running the show lacked strategic vision and the ability to transition the company from the paper maps / mail room mentality to a software and electronic data provider.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pack up and go home and leave the task of transforming the company to people who know what they're doing and have the guts to drive lasting change.

    Pros

    Good Company to work for, some opportunities for promotions/better jobs during my tenure, management was decent, didn't put to much pressure on our department and onsite food is great.

    Cons

    Has a corporate/"Office Space" type feel in the building, I worked a temporary position that was eventually layed off after a much shorter time than told, so any temp workers I suggest looking for permanant employment throughout job.

    I worked at Jeppesen Sanderson full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Nice surroundings, very helpful co-workers, allowance for some levity and suggestions for improvement if a viable solution is offered along with the problem.

    Cons

    There always seems to be that level of stress wondering if you are next on the layoff list. Management has a habit of leading by fear and dangling "carrots" in front of you by way of empty promises of better hours, work conditions or pay if you are willing to go way above and beyond without proper compensation with the old "for now until we get through this rough patch" trick. It all reflects in the bottom line numbers that management ultimately gets credit for.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pay attention to the people down on the bottom of the ladder. Learn what it takes to get the good numbers and give credit where it's due. Cut down on middle management that take undue credit and lead by fear.
    MVT used to be someone who paid attention and cared about the people but pressures and schedules changed that. Go back to being the great guy people wanted to please.
