    Pros

    Work environment and peers are excellent...

    Cons

    Management refuses to conclude a market rate contract with the pilots. This pilot group severely lags peer pilots group in pay, work rules, and time off.

    Advice to Management

    Conclude a market rate contract with the pilot group ASAP. Every day of delay broadens the split between this critical work group and management.

    I have been working at JetBlue full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good equipment and maintenance. Overall positive work environment.

    Cons

    Apparent lack of strong CEO vision and leadership. Spotty career development. Dodgy approach to compensation.

    Advice to Management

    Focus your tax windfall spending on improving the product. Your future does not lie in Technology Ventures: that focus is way to far out to deliver returns in the near future, it also dilutes your ability to follow through on delivering better inflight systems today. Invest in real, and experienced, on line supervisors - not interns or vendors who take the liability for poorly developed career paths and rookie mistakes in execution.

    I have been working at JetBlue full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Live near base, which just so happens to be a junior base

    Cons

    Company is being run by bean counters when they posted a $3 billion profit. Pilots have been in contract negotiations since 2015. The Flight Attendants are in the midsts of unionizing. The company is cutting $300 million from it Maintenance budget. Company has the WORST on-time performance in the industry. Venture Capitalists and micro managers are running this company. Either it's going to be sold off, or go out of business. Looks like Eastern Airlines all over again!

    Advice to Management

    Finish contract negotiations with the pilots so the pilots can move on with their lives! Stop nickle and diming the operation. Cut all your excessive overhead and get Operations in lockstep. Get rid of the "Wild West" mentality!

    Flexible schedule. Overnights in cool cities.

    Pros

    Great people that were hired when all the other airlines were not hiring. Everyone that helps generate revenue/touched airplanes are generally great people and we all work together well.

    Cons

    The leadership at jetBlue has all but vanished. The company core values have taken a tremendous hit since Dave Barger became CEO. Most pilots have gotten very frustrated with the many broken promises from the ELT. The company is making major mistakes when dealing with declining morale and pilots leaving for other major airlines.

    Advice to Management

    Tell the truth, and tell the whole truth. Change the way you receive bonuses so that no bonuses are paid with an increase in total revenue AND an increase in the internal NPS which will force managers to become leaders.
