    I have been working at JetBlue full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There are a lot of smart people, and a lot of visionaries have worked at this company. IT compensation is pretty darn good, even for New York.

    Cons

    IT leadership is feckless, and having seen three different leadership teams it seems inevitable they will continue to be ineffective. Increasingly crewmembers are expected to be available any time of day or night for whatever whims your director or vp has.

    The company culture has evolved such that style is valued above substance. Everyone is looking for the next big idea, and nobody had enough patience to see difficult problems solved.

    Pros

    The company culture is excellent. Very focused on employee happiness and satisfaction. Great perks, new airplanes, headquarters in New York, non-union.

    Cons

    People love their job so they never leave, making it take time to gain seniority and find opportunities for promotion. some grumpy coworkers, but that's at any job really.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing the great job that you are doing!

    Pros

    Smart, passionate people to work with, fun work culture. It was hard to leave the flight benefits too.

    Cons

    It's hard to work for an industry and company that struggles to make a profit. While JetBlue fared better than others, it's hard to get support, IT budgets, compensation, etc because of it.

    I worked at JetBlue

    Pros

    I enjoyed working in a fast paced environment with fun people (there's always a couple of bad apples no matter where you work) for a company with strong values.

    Cons

    The hours can be taxing (i.e. early early mornings, and late late nights).

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work! Continue to invest in your people and they will continue to invest in your customers.

    I worked at JetBlue full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some of the best people to work with, frontline employees make the job worth having, and helping customers always put a smile on my face.

    Cons

    Management is too stuck in their ways and their unfortunately is a lot of cronyism, makes it difficult to advance to a level of importance. Also many of the systems of accountability for front line employees are antiquated and do not account for reality, another unfortunate but true reality of this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to listen to their employees! They might be surprised that some of the best ideas come from the people who actually interact with the customers.

    Pros

    Flying benefits are great, and the work is interesting. Depending on what team you are on you might have opportunities to work on great projects.

    Cons

    The company is becoming increasingly political, and there is much favoritism. Many teams do not try to promote from within, and growth within the company is difficult. The culture is changing.

    Current Employee - Manager Operational Finance in Long Island City, NY (US)

    I have been working at JetBlue full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've worked in various departments at JetBlue, so I will start with a disclaimer that not all departments are great. However those that live the company values and have strong leadership are great and thrive very well. Crew members who are willing to learn and willingly get to know various parts of the company can be handsomely rewarded with a promotion in a short amount of time.

    Cons

    Operational support analysts have little direction which leads to high turnover or people stuck in the same role for long periods of time. You certainly choose your own direction at JetBlue, and if you don't make the most of it, it could get stale fast. Also, lower than market pay for corporate employees.
