    Pros

    Very flat hierarchy and management is extremely receptive to ideas - even entry-level employees can make a difference in company policies and processes.

    Cons

    In the quest for company-wide equality, management positions are given the same benefits packages as frontline employees. Great deal if you're a frontline employee, but it's a huge loss if you're a management employee because your benefits aren't nearly as good as you'd get elsewhere.

    Pros

    Flight Benefits allow to fly employee, parents, children and spouse or significant-other for free.
    Fun, young company with lots of extra curricular activities to help the community.
    Healh insurance did not go up in several years.
    Stock options with discount.

    Cons

    Salaries for middle management are below average, some directors and VPs have huge bonuses.
    Politics preserve unhappy frustrated people in lead and key positions. Some jobs are a farce.
    Mediocre untalented people is not detected. Spot bonuses are rare.
    The performance measurement is absurdly useless. No clear career path or talent detection.

    Advice to Management

    Detect, preserve and utilize talent. Reward hard honest work. Do not rely on consultants for everything. Fire negative leaders or the good people reporting to them with leave. Train management, enhance their horizons. They are myopic.

    I have been working at JetBlue full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    We have some of the best people to work on a day to day basis.

    Cons

    Lack of any leadership from the top. Alot of talk with no follow thru. Seems they are just wanting to set the company up for sale. While the top gets $$$$ they rob the workers of benefits and pay. Top brass had 46% increases in pay and benefits 2010 to 2011 yet they increase the costs on the average employee benefits by a wide margin.

    Advice to Management

    Resign if you cannot figure out how to truly lead a fine group of people. Read a few good books on leadership to get a hint. So far you have lost 25 a share in market cap and you think your doing good. Really!!!

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

    Pros

    Strong cutting edge company leading the industry in offerings. There are many opportunities for entry level employees. The culture here in Salt Lake is amazing. Front line Managers are generally very grounded and in the corner for their direct reports.

    Cons

    Analysts are not treated the same nor given the same opportunities as supervisors or others in operational positions. Mid Level management (Director/VP) are too lost in the day to day operation to see problems developing amongst non operational teams.
    Opportunities for growth and advancement (minimum requirements for similar jobs) are not consistent across different office/airport locations across the company.
