Pros

Great people, really fun to work with. Awesome benefits, really fun and motivating company.

Cons

Not the most efficient corporate environment, technology on the customer end is fantastic, but terrible for employees. (We don't have MS Outlook and rely on an antiquated email system)

    Pros

    For technical people, you will have an opportunity to work on complex technical environment and multiple third party companies that makes the job very interesting. Always plenty to do.

    Cons

    Project priorities weren't defined, and very lean IT environment based on work and what you had to support.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clearly define priorities to execute on what will make the greatest impact to Alaska Air

    Great Brand but Frustrating Middle Management Career

    I have been working at Alaska Airlines

    Pros

    Decent benefits, including flights (when not full)

    Cons

    Middle management is squeezed to perform more and more with less while upper management enjoys secretive "perks" and front line (union) are paid well through contracted wages and benefits.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Work toward increased transparency, honesty, and internal succession planning. Train, mentor, and promote from the inside to gain trust and loyalty. Performance Based Pay (formerly profit sharing) should be the same percentage of wages or salary company-wide and not higher for upper management.
