I have been working at Alaska Airlines

Pros

Great benefits and a great corporate culture. People here love the industry and love the company, and there are great benefits as well.

Cons

Below average compensation. Could be making much more in a different industry. Alaska (and I would assume most airlines) are cheap when it comes to compensation.

    Great company, need to treat management like managers, not union hourly employees

    I worked at Alaska Airlines

    Pros

    * Great family type atmosphere
    * People are passionate about their business
    * Generally, good work-life balance (unless during busy season or project work)
    * One of the best in a tough industry
    * Relatively small company, can make a real impact

    Cons

    * Management seems to be slow to get rid of poor performers
    * Many leaders run things by micro-management, very much a command and control environment (more so in some areas than others)
    * Pay appears to be indexed to airline averages. That is fine if you only employ pilots and flight attendants, but it doesn't work when you have skilled tech and management employees. There are plenty of other employers on the west coast that will pay double for comparable work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Clean out the dead-wood and micro-managers for starters. Review compensation. Don't play games with resourcing. If you have a position open, fill it.
