    I worked at Jeppesen full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Wonderful coworkers, competitive benefits and great products. Most of the people I've met are passionate about aviation and care about doing a great job.

    Cons

    Zero incentives to work hard, promotions are almost non-existent, bonus was a joke due to Boeing's numbers bringing Jeppesen's down. Upper Management is so far removed from the plebeians and what actually goes into their work. All they care about is the bottom line and meeting financial goals. Constant re orgs/layoffs and no room to grow internally. Fraternal type of environment where popularity and being in the right clique is paramount to career success. HR is slower than molasses.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees to retain the good ones. The better they're treated the harder they will work.

    Pros

    Competitive pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Layoffs and reorgs. Favoritism plays a large role when promoting employees to management level positions. Some of these managers have no clue on how to be fair, unbiased when making decisions or treating other employees. Extremely political.

    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.

    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.

    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.
