    they really try to do their best to satisfy their employees

    with recent management changes, many employees are somehow disgruntled and believe that the company is cutting benefits to save money. not so true.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    just be there for your employees, if your employees aren't performing well, then you are not performing well as a manager

    Pros

    Great travel benefits and competitive pay.

    Cons

    The company is more concerned about making money than anything else. To make money, they want to keep the customers happy, many times at the expense of safety.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop hiring people that are inexperienced, unprofessional and uneducated. JetBlue hires people that other supervisors are dating, sleeping with, or related to. Most the supervisors I knew rarely followed any of the rules they expected those they were supervising to follow. Too much nepotism, cronyism, and favoritism. The company managers and executives date within the company, and blatantly play favorites.

    Pros

    Good brand, nice and casual people, flight benefits, good work-life balance, modern office space, exciting projects

    Cons

    No opportunity for growth, low salaries, too much emphasis solely on communication skills, lots of politics, sometimes uninvolved management

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest more in your crewmembers by giving them the chance to grow and rewarding them for their practical skills, not only the ability to sell themselves. Having a strong marketing team is important, but the doers and quiet achievers are as important for the success of the company. Respect diversity and embrace all types of personalities. Promoting only the people with great soft skills and overlooking the humble, quieter achievers is not the best approach and in the long term you will lose valuable talent.

    Pros

    Working from home, travel benefits, thorough training and resources, opportunity to advance, friendly atmosphere, flexible schedule and travel opportunities.

    Policies were constantly changing. Job expectations changed more towards sales, it was required we have a certain percentile of upscale on our average calls per review period.
