    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 Management

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

    Pros

    I really got along well with my team and my manager was OUTSTANDING. It was one of those rare instances where it didn't feel like a job, I loved the work and the environment. I don't know if I'll ever find that again in a company. I felt a lot of support from my managers, as well as from the PMO and the organization. I always felt that everyone wanted me to succeed, and that my contributions were appreciated and valued. Also, my manager was an advocate of flex time and telecommuting. This made the team very happy, and as a result they were very easy to work with and project manage.

    Cons

    The program that I worked on was going through a refresh. We had difficulties getting a requirements from the business, which caused a bit of frustration and paranoia. There were also some quality mandates that were taking up quite a bit of people's time, with little apparent value added to the program/business. Finally, I witnessed some growing pains as managers from the parent company, Boeing, attempted to integrate into Jepp.

    Advice to Management

    Pros

    I was able to get the job with short notice

    Cons

    The people are awful. It was a sweat shop. You are expected to so many projects per day....and if you don't, you could get in trouble. Jeppesen DOES NOT CARE about it's employees. They actually spend time planning for attrition vs. trying to retain talented individuals. It is a stagnant work environment, with 0 opportunities to move up or branch out into a better position.

    Advice to Management

    Act like you value your employees.

    Pros

    Employees are highly motivated and believe in the mission of Jeppesen

    Cons

    Their building is very over crowded, to the point where they have people working in converted storage rooms and loading docks. Most of the management were promoted from within, and there was a noticeable lack of professionalism in the lower level managers. While they do produce a quality product, their technology is dated and many employees don't really understand what they are doing beyond doing it the way they have always done it. They got bought by Boeing several years ago, and my impression is that Boeing is pulling as much profit out of Jeppesen as they can which stifles the ability to really grow the company and workforce.

    Advice to Management

    For much it's history Jeppesen has been the leader and only game in town. Someday someone is going to come along and do it better and cheaper and will eat your lunch. Invest in new technology and in developing your own people rather than cutting training budgets for short term gains.

    Pros

    Being part of the Boeing family of companies does lead to good benefits

    Cons

    The parent company Boeing is becoming more and more a part of the day-to-day activities at Jeppesen. All the large company stereotypes (inefficient process, waterfall mentality, high ceremony activities, much discussion/little action) are becoming the norm at Jeppesen.
    Also, it is very difficult to transfer within the company. Open positions are posted rarely, and the interview process (internal and external) moves glacially slowly.

    Advice to Management

    Instead of just talking to employees during their exit interview, talk to employees who haven't left the company yet. They have good ideas, they've done software development for a long time. People are valuable resources within the company, but they're leaving because their opinions and experience are not being adequately considered.
