    Pros

    Some really great people. Decent compensation and work life balance. Great products that serve an important role in aviation safety.

    Cons

    Some of the worst Sr. Leaders I’ve seen. Most, who came from Boeing, care little to nothing for the people. They only care about how much money they can make off customers. The place is now a meat grinder and most Sr. Leaders only care that they have enough new people coming in to chew up.

    Advice to Management

    There is none they will listen to. CEO and COO and many of their cronies treat team members like it is a privilege to be in their presence when it is not.

    I worked at Jeppesen full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Some nice people to work with.

    Cons

    Lots of nasty, self serving, backstabbing people looking to sell you under the table to advance their carer.

    Advice to Management

    Wake the F up and deal with the bad managers before you loose all the good talent.

    I worked at Jeppesen full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    good medical and dental benefits

    Cons

    management, no work/life balance/ rude managers/no perks at all

    Advice to Management

    stop threatening people "changes are coming but we don't know what it is, all we know is you wont like it" .. In Silicon Valley most companies have perks and incentives and want to keep people happy.. at Jeppesen management does nothing for the employees to keep them happy. They refuse to retain good employes than thy to keep them. There is no work/life balance. It has been very sad to watch this company go downhill these past 15 years! RUN from any job offer unless you like to be surrounded by unhappy people who are always looking over their shoulder. Not worth it when there are so many other companies that appreciate their employees

    I worked at Jeppesen as a contractor

    Pros

    A strong aviation culture and history. There is plenty of domain knowledge to discover. The projects allow reinforcement of aviation knowledge for pilots.

    Cons

    This is a paper company that is trying to move into the world of technology. Departments prioritize their perception of importance and value versus the delivery of useful products. Managers and employees will pass the buck to appear knowledgeable and complete tasks. Employees will frequently criticize and complain without offering solutions.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to people who have experience with technology and software methodology/implementation. Research new IT solutions to old problems as you are many years behind the times and continuing to lag. Improve communication to remove dismissive and combative attitudes between departments, divisions, and geographical locations. Help employees understand that they should work together as a team to complete their goals instead of perpetually adding obstacles and doubt to delay projects.

    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.
