    Pros

    JetBlue Airways offers free flight benefits, yearly raises, flexible schedule. We also get other discounts to other companies that JetBlue partners with.

    Cons

    Jetblue is still a start up company and is still learning how they want to run the company. There is a lot of inconsistency between stations and employees

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

    Pros

    - Free flights
    - people I work with I get along well with

    Cons

    - Directors are still detached, selfish, and ignore recommendations from their management and experienced people, leaving those people to mop up poor decisions
    - A lot of managers don't escalate, let the directors walk all over them and make decisions that they know are not optimal
    - Certain directors (Infrastructure services) are allowed to hire people from their old companies directly into management positions that are created specifically for them and in some cases unnecessary, even if they're not qualified
    - Directors place unqualified people into certain positions and levels (architect) simply to say that there are career opportunities
    - There is high risk of retaliation when you bring concerns to your manager or Director (poor reviews without clear reasons or followup/engagement from your Crewleader)
    - There are no promotions. You must apply for a position, then you're not given competitive salaries, but a minimal increase based on your current salary. There's also risk of retaliation if you then refuse the promotion.
    - Salaries are non-competitive with local NYC market, IT is having extreme difficult acquiring talent, and talent retention is difficult.
    - Talent management is among the worst I've seen in any IT department, subject matter experts are now detached and have no incentive to engage in current projects and initiatives
    - Extreme lack of vision in the director level in terms of overall strategy, lots of money spent in the wrong places or poorly spent (Infrastructure)

    Advice to Management

    People department needs to pay closer attention to what's going on in departments, specifically IT. There needs to be more ways for Crewmembers to state their concerns or issues without possibility retaliation from their management. It seems the CIO had good intentions, but he brought in and moved a couple of ineffective people into key roles that has IT unable to engage and meet the rapidly changing needs of the business.
