    I have been working at JetBlue full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    JetBlue is a great company to work for because the culture of the company is to listen to and support its emoloyees and offer the best experience for its customers. The company HQ is top of the line and lots of friendly people.

    Cons

    It's hard to complain about a company that has "fun" as one of their values but of course no company is without its short comings. Getting your foot in the door of the company might be hard but once you're there it's even harder to move up unless you network and schmooze with the right people. The company does emphasize that it wants employees that fit the culture but too often I have seen the most qualified be passed over for the more extroverted socialite who might not be as sharp but knows how to light up a room.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing but make sure to reward the hardest workers, not just the popular ones.

    Pros

    Fantastic Company, great people to work with, no complaints at all..

    Cons

    Veterans usually like to slack, management needs a little more training in managing and not in the office.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try looking out the window or out the office and see what is going on...

    I worked at JetBlue full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Founded on excellent Corporate Culture and Values; Free travel (if you can take the time off), Many Great employees. Fun working in a fast paced environment with many facinating and dedicated people. Everyday is different with new challenges and excitement.

    Cons

    Shoddy Benefits, no identifiable "career paths", Values and Culture have declined in response to growth,employee turnover (high), non-competitive Salary structures, etc... Not for a long term career...Not many employees are kept past the 10 year mark and targeted for replacement at those levels no matter how much they have accomplished. Insider run.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Despite the rhetoric, return to the basics that got JetBlue through the first 10 years. Take a hard look at Managers, Directors and above who are primarily self-interested in their own career preservation at the expense of their Crewmembers. Stock prices have gone up at the expense of morale and continuing employee "churn" to keep costs down to boost ROIC.

    I worked at JetBlue part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Stand-by flight benefits (especially Zedfare standby benefits on other airlines after 6 months)
    Flexible schedule - easy to trade shift-bid hours with coworkers
    Fun-ish company culture
    Doesn't come home with you - work stays at work
    Optional health benefits for part-time employees

    Cons

    Terrible pay - barely over minimum wage
    Boring job - same problems solved over and over again
    Takes about 18 months - 2 years to get enough seniority to have "good shifts" (not working on weekends)
    Isolated - work from home
    Tied to the desk - literally with a head set
    Required to live with 45 minutes of call center in Salt Lake City
    Not enough Jetblue flights out of Salt Lake - hard to use standby flight benefits

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create shifts for bid that are 20 hours a week (as opposed to 24)
    Increase the steps in pay for time with the company

    Business Partners are not treated the same way as full-time crew members

    Should treat everyone equally and the Talent Acquisition is way overworked.

    Young company with a great work environment. Great travel benefits (free flights on jetBlue plus several agreements with other airlines).
