    Pros

    You feel proud to work for this company. Once you drink the blue juice it runs through your veins. I've been here for 6+ years and I've loved every bit of it.

    Cons

    As with smaller companies and/or departments, sometimes you have to wear many hats and become a jack of all trades to help fill in a missing gap or role.

    Pros

    Senior Leadership genuinely cares about employees
    Solid benefits package (industry standard plus a few creative perks)
    Willing to take risks to remain competitive
    Provides opportunities to make a difference

    Cons

    The airline industry has tight margins, and salaries reflect that
    Options for significant advancement (director and above) limited to New York, Salt Lake City, and Orlando

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep celebrating the culture and all of the things we do well, but also be honest in sharing the areas we need to improve to remain competitive.

    I worked at JetBlue part-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    The flight benefits! You get to fly free! So does your children/parents/spouse and a buddy!
    Cool working in the airport and learning about the flight industry!
    Company values!

    Cons

    Very strict rules. It's a airport that is expected.
    Management.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have faith in your new employees.
    I was hired at JetBlue as an Airport Operations Crew member. I was flown out to Orlando, Florida for about two weeks and passed the training with flying colors! I was told the past few people flunked out of JetBlue University (Training) so they were happy i graduated. However, on day 3/5 of "On the job training" i finally received my employee parking pass. I couldn't find any parking in the employee lot because it was FULL! I wasn't told what to do in a situation like that, so i drove around for a while until i finally parked in the airport garage which wasn't for employees. It caused me to be SIX MINUTES LATE. When i arrived to the check-in station to clock in an employee took my badge in the back to clock in but an assistant manager came out without it & told me he was sending me home... Now i know if you miss a day of training you're basically fired from JetBlue. So the next day i had a meeting with the manager and they came to the conclusion that i had to be let go. I contested the decision with corporate and they upheld the termination because of reliability. I felt like the entire company turned their back on me because i was unintentionally six minutes late. So much money was spent flying me out for training and on those great new uniforms i was given, I never even had the chance to wear them. Great company overall, but the management i encountered there has to be by far the worst.

    The employees are some of the best in the Industry. Was always a pleasure to come to work and have Supervision that was there to help you get your flights out not only on-time but mostly early.

    Cons

    The direction the airline is taking is a huge step in the wrong direction. Don't alienate the loyal customers by becoming another legendary carrier. You brought back humanity to the airlines.
