    Changes job descriptions to weed out existing hard workers.

    Sales Executive (Former Employee)
    Englewood, CO

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

    ConsThere 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 Senior ManagementPay 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.

    Arcaic and slow to react. Don't know where they want to go.

    Navigation Information Analyst (Current Employee)
    Englewood, CO

    ProsBenefits are from Boeing. Good 401k, health, dental. Good culture among other colleagues. Culture that leaders are attempting to instill is unclear.

    ConsManagers have their own agenda and if your ideas and/or concerns conflict you are marked. Tools are outdated, some are approaching 20 years old. Too many chiefs and they want to add more!

    Advice to Senior ManagementGenuinely listen to people.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great place to work.....but only if you're a pilot

    Nia (Current Employee)
    Centennial, CO

    ProsBeautiful location in Englewood, Industry leader in Flight Charting, Work life balance, Friendly Coworkers, Benefits package is pretty good, interesting work environment.

    ConsTime off policies, lack of access to virtual work, archaic tool sets, MASSIVE lack of innovation. This company is stuck in the technological dark ages. Any attempt to advance processes or create time savings is immediately rebuffed by management, then co-opted and presented as their own idea 6 months later.

    Advice to Senior ManagementGet with the times, update the tools, listen to analyst and LEARN from the mistakes of the past.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Overlooked intern

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGlobal company with huge influence. They have vast amounts of resources and personal. Aslo owned by Boeing, so a lot of communication with Seattle

    ConsCompany is too big, takes weeks just to get approval. Interns seem to get overlooked depending on the department.

    Used to be a good place to work

    Distribution (Former Employee)
    Englewood, CO

    ProsDecent benefits. Good work/life balance. Coworkers enjoyable.

    ConsEver shrinking employee perks - no more company parties, no more tuition reimbursement, no more thanksgiving turkey.... No bright outlook for the company as a whole which management has no problem reminding people of.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop ruling through fear (of being laid off/ terminated). The common theme is that you can easily be replaced so shut up and work. End rampant favoritism and live by the company values you so readily espouse. Senior management openly informs employees that the business (distribution center) is not sustainable.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Good company - Bad mangement

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    Denver, CO

    ProsIt is a good company to work for. Leader in its field. Excellent working environment.

    ConsPoor middle management. Their shield themselves from assuming any responsibility. Taking decisions based on personal issues instead of practical and business reasons. Creation of a club.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBoeing should held middle management accountable for the fall of Jeppesen as the so called LEAN culture is used for personnel issues retaliations rather than business decisions . Stop discrimination culture that only US born and bread employees are good enough for management or leadership positions. Stop arrogance in regards to other countries. Stop finger pointing promotions based of friendship. Stop HR covering up for all of the above.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
