Current Employee - IT Project Manager III in Seattle, WA (US)

I have been working at Alaska Airlines

Pros

Personal time off, flexible schedule, occasional telecommuting

Cons

IT systems are old and in constant need of repair. Very limited investment in improving behind-the-scenes operations. As far as project management goes, the budgets are undefined because labor isn't planned or tracked well. Schedules are never met because resources are spread too thin and personnel don't feel compelled to meet a schedule. Scopes are constantly in flux.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus! Implement and enforce use of a labor planning/time keeping tool that is easy to use. Make people accountable.

    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)

    I worked at Alaska Airlines

    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
