I worked at Jeppesen full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Great company, good benefits, wonderful people to work with.

Cons

You have to leave the company to be paid within your correct salary range. Even when promoted within the company the salary is not adjusted to company standard salary ranges. New hires are often paid higher and adjustments to salary is rarely considered. Difficult to keep good people on IT teams.

Advice to Management

Consider the reasons most individuals leave the company and then return within a year or two. In almost every case it is due to compensation.

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

    Pros

    Good work/life balance
    Full of good, bright people who strive to make a difference.
    Fun and interesting to be part of company that impacts the world of aviation/life as much as Jeppesen does.
    Continued influence of parent company, Boeing, shows promise as the company's tries to evolve in a rapidly changing market place.

    Cons

    Senior management doesn't really understand technology development. They don't seem to have an understanding of large, complex technology projects. Consequently they can't provide a lot of clear direction/vision and then get skittish when projects don't proceed as planned.

    Company's compensation structure relies too heavily on people wanting to work in aviation and historically might be willing to exchange some financial compensation to do that. Their comp structure is not mature when it comes to the various disciplines that play a part in successful software development.

    HR has repeatedly shown that they view humans as resources and not as people. Slow to react when hiring is urgent. They lack knowledge of new disciplines that haven't traditionally been part of an aviation company.

    Advice to Management

    Coordinate your product offerings!
    * The number of redundant software projects with significant overlap is not indicative of a mature company.
    * Your customers expect more integration when buying web-based products or apps. Current offerings are too isolated and lack the unified experience people expect when paying a premium to an industry leader.


  2. "Good, stable, employee-focused, and challenging"

    Pros

    This is a good company, in the sense of doing good in the world. It's also a good place to work, with a focus on employee satisfaction and professional interaction. They've had a very stable history, with 70+ years of consistent profitability. And it's a challenge as the company transitions to the digital realm.

    Cons

    Some unnecessary alarmism about profits, uncertainty about direction, and lack of leadership from the executives.
