    Pros

    Everyone used to be a pilot. Jepp has status for people who fly.

    Cons

    If you don't, the consequences of it's not being a software company become more apparent: less oriented to modern processes, technologies.

    Great community, although communication/focus can be frustrating and unfocused at times. Internship program needs focus.

    I worked at Jeppesen Sanderson as an intern (more than a year)

    Pros

    Everyone here if really friendly, and eager to let you expand your knowledge and skills. You usually end up in the department you want to work in after a while, as everyone knows each others and is eager to help you get ahead. Benefits are nice and Boeing backing ensures some safety.

    Cons

    Sometimes you see a good amount of people not doing their work and leaving it to others to handle. This can make things stressful and chaotic, with a lot to handle at times. Training is an issue as well, as this leaves people not really sure of where to direct you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Continue to grow and push for people to pursue desires, but also start to evaluate the work ethic of team members.

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

    Pros

    Good compensation and semi-flexible with hours. Part of Boeing, providing a broad range of interactions with a lot of different corners of the company. Very pilot friendly environment.

    Cons

    Internship program was extremely disorganized. Little/no guidance or even coherent goals to accomplish. No clear company goals, and a crippling bureaucracy.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Shifting from paper maps to 'Digital Aviation' doesn't just require producing a different product, it requires a fundamental change in the structure and strategy of the company. The strong hiring bias towards pilots is perhaps too strong. Pilots tend to think in similar ways and approach problems the same. Foster diversity, not just in race/gender, but in background.

    Jeppesen is too big/slow to effectively act/react to the market shifts and changing technology in the industry. The company should be about 1/5th the current size. Determine your core goal and sell off everything that doesn't fit that goal (GA, BA, MA). Success for Jeppesen will come from being smaller/faster, not bigger.

    Pros

    Steady work and nice building. They are concerned with workers safety and well being. My boss was respectful and treated his team as equals.

    Cons

    It felt like an old boys network. There are many ex military and aviation people working there. I was neither, so I always kinda just felt out of the loop.

    Pros

    Good bennies, stable employment, fun international culture, budget is easy to get once you learn the process, access to all the tools you will ever need.

    Cons

    Can't pay top talent, lots of people aren't qualified for their roles, Boeing is taking over most leadership roles, annual reviews don't reward hard work, IT isn't helpful or engaged, the best people are leaving or have left.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on talent, keep the good people you have, fix IT management - try 360 reviews to identify problems
