IT in jetBlue has become a department with no advancement and very low morale. No opportunity, poor leadership.

Crew Member (Current Employee)

I have been working at JetBlue

ProsIt used to be a much better place to work. The coworkers and other non-leadership staff within IT are good to work with and work hard (most managers and staff).

ConsTravel benefits are decent, tough to travel with your family.
Health benefits could be better, but aren't bad (I've had worse).
IT Leadership has managed to drive morale to very low levels, and make it repeatedly clear they have no appreciation for the staff, nor any intent to help develop the careers of the staff.
No promotion and career advancement from within for IT.
Talent and hard work is not rewarded within IT. Poor work, poor results and last minute heroism during major system outages is rewarded instead, preventing incentive to do good work the first time.
IT Leadership in the past couple of years has hired some inexperienced managers and directors with little technical knowledge and industry or IT experience from various parts of the country to agree to take on work and agree with IT Leaderships directives, staff is paid below market and given no incentive to put in that extra effort.
IT Leaderships goals are quantity over quality.
No interest in career development or growth, and it looks like the light at the end of the tunnel is outsourcing.

Advice to Senior ManagementLeadership outside of IT should take a look and see what's obvious to everyone within IT before everyone with talent and good ideas leaves. IT at jetBlue is in a poor state and will not be able to sustain the growth and direction jetBlue wants to go in its second decade. Promote from within and stop looking around the country for yes men to put in management positions.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

Great Customer Service company, but at-will employer status makes company a challenge to work for.

Flight Attendant (Current Employee)
Orlando, FL (US)

I have been working at JetBlue


Pros: -Great travel perks: crewmembers fly for free - as well their parents, spouse (significant other), and kids. -Preferential bidding for flight… Cons: -At-will employer in which you can be terminated for any or no reason. -No union thus no protection in case of merger/acquisition. -Operation is first...everything else is… Advice to Senior Management: If you take care of your crewmembers, they will take… More
