Current Employee - Flight Attendant in Washington, DC (US)

I have been working at JetBlue

Pros

Great benefits, (insurance, free flights for you and family, 401k, 100 percent matching up to 8 percent of pay),
Better pay than other airlines,
Being a flight attendant is pretty cool,
Job security (they don't do layoffs, just buyouts),

Cons

Being a flight attendant is also really stressful,
The uniforms suck,
The life of a reserve flight attendant at JetBlue is way harder than other airlines,
Huge difference in quality of supervisors, some are great, some are horrible.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More consistent training for supervisors, make sure they have inflight experience.
Better, non-polyester uniforms, fewer minimum rest layovers.
Send all Embraers back to the factory.

    Great company, unless it's IT.

    I have been working at JetBlue

    Pros

    Rapid growth fuels lots of work and constant challenges. If you're looking for excitement, airlines have plenty and JetBlue is one of the best. I would recommend working at JetBlue as long as you are not considering IT.

    Cons

    I would not recommend working for the JetBlue IT department under the current senior leadership. Fear and intimidation are not leadership skills. Critique publicly and compliment never is also unacceptable. Additionally, even herculean achievement will not result in career advancement despite the definite challenge IT Crewmembers have with work life balance given workload and staffing. The company overall has had a very difficult time with performance management and IT has been at the head.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Judge leadership on their organization's Net Promoter Score. NPS says it all. If you're not listening to it you're either not listening to your people or not treating IT like the rest of the company.
