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

    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

    I worked at Alaska Airlines

    Pros

    Free travel, great job while I was in school, down to earth employees, often times it was fun to work.

    Cons

    The positions I was in was unionized so the higher seniority people could sometimes be lazy and you had to make up for the slack. All while they get paid a lot more than you for doing the same job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    No personal feel to any management feedback or job reviews.
