    Great company but still working out the kinks internally

    Manager (Current Employee) New York, NY (US)

    ProsGreat brand name, flight benefits, culture is great, NY office is awesome

    ConsDepending on the dept the work life balance may not be so great, technology for the support centers has not caught up to the rest of the company

    Advice to Senior ManagementThe support centers need some additional attention and some changes have to be made to be more efficient. You cannot continue to grow yet still do things the same way you used to.

    The most horrible company Ive ever worked for

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Chicago, IL (US)

    ProsWeekly Pay... and that's it.

    ConsTerrible management and supervision, terrible training. Terrible hours. They want you to be on top of everything but they aren't on top of everything themselves.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHow about about take some responsibility for your mistakes, don't overwork your employees, don't break rules when its convenient for you. Oh and make sure you train new employees on what they will actually be doing. Worst management ever.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    This company has changed dramatically........I have been with JetBlue for over 11 years.

    In Flight Crew Member (Current Employee)

    ProsTheir Care Team is amazing, wonderful people who are very supportive when you need it. You don't see that very often at big companies.

    ConsThe REALLY don't care about their Inflight Department, period. Everything is a struggle and if you are on reserve, it can be really tough.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBe the way you used to be.....treat your employees with dignity and respect and in turn you will get better performance from them.

    Better to lie and fly then be honest and grounded

    In Flight Crew (Former Employee) New York, NY (US)

    ProsFlexible hours and schedule. So can accommodate most days off.

    ConsUnreasonable response time to call in for work.

    Advice to Senior ManagementMore realistic and less close cutting hours on call out. Better preparation from the company will allow more results from employees.
