    I have been working at Jeppesen Sanderson full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Employees are talented, professional, and consistently some of the highest level "thinkers" I've had the privilege of working with. Almost across the board, Jeppesen GNS has consistently hired analysts who are driven and passionate about the aviation field and the role that Jeppesen products have in that community. Boeing offers company match (which can be allocated to stock, a major plus at this time).

    Cons

    Management is constantly working against their employees, often using "Big Brother" (aka Boeing) as the scapegoat for their excuses to why they refuse to support employee initiatives, technology updates, and forward thinking. Over the past year and a half, the restructuring efforts have eliminated so-called work-life balance and put undue pressure on already stressed-out employees to perform to standards that arn't transparent or even communicated. There has been a serious decline in morale, attrition is at a high, and mgmt's refusal to acknowledge these facts has put the squeeze on the millennial generation who have the time, skills, and education to seek employment elsewhere. This will leave a future void in talent when it will be most essential in the ever competitive technology field.

    Advice to Management

    GET WITH THE TIMES! If your millennials are posting resumes elsewhere and leaving for flying jobs that are half the salary, where will this leave your company when the good ol' boys generation retires? Be real and ask us what's driving us out, and be transparent about your efforts to retain your best. Find out what we value and make the effort to deliver and you will receive devoted, hard-working people in return.

    I worked at Jeppesen Sanderson full-time (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 Management

    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.

    I have been working at Jeppesen Sanderson full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Managers 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 Management

    Genuinely listen to people.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Time 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 Management

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

    I worked at Jeppesen Sanderson full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

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

    Cons

    Ever 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 Management

    Stop 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.

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

    Cons

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