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

    Pros

    Company is great to work for and has great benefits. They are producing cutting edge software for the aviation industry.

    Cons

    Company pays a little below the average. The company is resource deprived. More resources need to be provided to accomplish the work to be done.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more people to do the necessary work. Without more quality people, the products will fall behind the competition.

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

    Pros

    Part of Boeing. Good benefits.(Paid Time Off, 401K, Health Insurance, Dental Insurance, Basic Life Insurance). Working in the Distribution Center gave me the opportunity to learn different positions and improve my skills.

    Cons

    95% of the Production Specialists working in the Distribution Center are women. If you are a man, that is not necessarily a good thing for you. If you understand women, then you will have no problems.

    Advice to Management

    When you work as a Production Specialist in the Distribution Center you get two 10 minutes breaktimes which according to a number of employees is never enough. They say giving 15 minutes per break would be better, like other companies in the same area do.

    Good bennies, stable employment, fun international culture, budget is easy to get once you learn the process, access to all the tools you will ever need.

    Focus on talent, keep the good people you have, fix IT management - try 360 reviews to identify problems

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

    Pros

    I really got along well with my team and my manager was OUTSTANDING. It was one of those rare instances where it didn't feel like a job, I loved the work and the environment. I don't know if I'll ever find that again in a company. I felt a lot of support from my managers, as well as from the PMO and the organization. I always felt that everyone wanted me to succeed, and that my contributions were appreciated and valued. Also, my manager was an advocate of flex time and telecommuting. This made the team very happy, and as a result they were very easy to work with and project manage.

    Cons

    The program that I worked on was going through a refresh. We had difficulties getting a requirements from the business, which caused a bit of frustration and paranoia. There were also some quality mandates that were taking up quite a bit of people's time, with little apparent value added to the program/business. Finally, I witnessed some growing pains as managers from the parent company, Boeing, attempted to integrate into Jepp.

    Advice to Management

    None-
