Pros

The culture is incredible. As all employees are owners, everyone pulls towards the same goals. Creativity is everywhere. The atmosphere is fun and there is great pride in the company. I love wearing jeans everyday.

Cons

WestJet is doing so well that it can be challenging to get free standby travel to some destinations.

Advice to Management

Keep grwoing the company.

    Pros

    - Valuable brand and name to leverage
    - Industry average pay
    - Great (flight) benefits
    - Owner mentality; generous ESP plan
    - Nice, new Campus facility

    One of the best large Canadian companies out there. I only appreciated the culture and realized how good the culture was after I left. It is truly unique for one firm to maintain such a culture while growing to almost 10K people.

    Cons

    - A number of employees tend to "drink the Kool-Aid" too much, which can lead people to make irrational business decisions.
    - HQ'd in Calgary

    Advice to Management

    To retain top talent, investigate a more liberal telecommute or remote worker program. While PORTS are nice for Inflight and Flight Ops team, having the option of living in YYZ or YVR on the business side would be nice too.
