Pros

Flight Benefits allow to fly employee, parents, children and spouse or significant-other for free.
Fun, young company with lots of extra curricular activities to help the community.
Healh insurance did not go up in several years.
Stock options with discount.

Cons

Salaries for middle management are below average, some directors and VPs have huge bonuses.
Politics preserve unhappy frustrated people in lead and key positions. Some jobs are a farce.
Mediocre untalented people is not detected. Spot bonuses are rare.
The performance measurement is absurdly useless. No clear career path or talent detection.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Detect, preserve and utilize talent. Reward hard honest work. Do not rely on consultants for everything. Fire negative leaders or the good people reporting to them with leave. Train management, enhance their horizons. They are myopic.

    I worked at JetBlue

    Pros

    Flying on stand by
    Alot of free time in between flights
    Good workout

    Cons

    Bad breathing environment
    Unfair work conditions
    Incompetent Managers
    Coworkers that don't take their job seriously

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I would say to take more recognition when someone does a good job and to pay more for mandatory stay due to weather conditions. I also feel that there should be more organization and Jetblue should enforce strict consequences when employees don't show up for your flight when it comes in and you are a short two guys pulling in a plane is extra work on everyone else that actually came to work.
