    Pros

    This used to be a solid company that I was proud to work for. Unfortunately I would not recommend applying.

    Cons

    Our bonus structure is based 75% of Boeing performance and 25% of Jeppessen. This will change next year. For this year Boeing employees have received a one time adjustment to remove lower performance in Boeing in order to receive 95% of their bonus. Jeppesen employees, however are not being given the same adjustment. Therefore are receiving more than a 20% lower bonus. I would be interested to know how this is ethical? Fair? Sadly, it is more of the same. Jepp is a small fish in a very large pond.

    I worked at Jeppesen full-time

    Pros

    family-friendly, dedicated employees, new office in great location

    Cons

    Lower level worker bee employees have a difficult time working towards professional goals and receiving promotions due to disorganization of upper management

    Advice to Management

    Set clear and concise standards and expectations so that lower level worker bee employees have a fair chance at working towards possible promotions.

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

    Pros

    Health and Dental Benefits
    Under Boeing umbrella
    Great co-workers
    Employee appreciation lunch
    Cafeteria in main Denver office
    Working with aviation enthusiasts

    Cons

    No room for growth! Management could careless to help you move on. You will be stuck in your current position for a long time.Pay is pretty low for any job you do at this company. Once a year management "cleans house" (layoffs) and then hires the next month for the same position without explanation. Too many changes going on with this company. A lot of turn over as well. Definitely do your research before working here! Also, not enough parking spaces at Denver office. Most employees have to park offsite and are bused to work.

    Advice to Management

    Help employees with career growth! Listen to your employees concerns about pay structure.

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

    Pros

    A few, very few lower level leaders who get it. Truly get Agile. Truly understand how to lead. Lead in a compassionate, smart and yet tough manner.

    Cons

    Boeing should stick to building airplanes but get OUT OF the software business unless it is decided that executive level leadership positions will be fulfilled with folks who truly understand software development as it exists TODAY and where it is headed. Not with past IT execs who worked on uber Boeing programs. Overkill in so many areas where it truly isn't important and other areas where no one is home. Lots of "work" doing non business/customer added value activities.

    Advice to Management

    Boeing CAS senior leadership - You are steering Jeppesen into the side of a mountain. If you are TRULY interested in developing and growing services market share, then totally rethink how things are being done and who you have leading the ship. Airbus is going to not only surpass you in the software/services sector but lap you if you don't wake up and find the right leadership (mostly outside now as you have run out of town all the past Jeppesen technical leadership) to lead software development in terms of how it is done today and where we should be going. Do this or get out. Sell off Jeppesen and let Garmin acquire it.
