    I worked at JetBlue full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some of the best people to work with, frontline employees make the job worth having, and helping customers always put a smile on my face.

    Cons

    Management is too stuck in their ways and their unfortunately is a lot of cronyism, makes it difficult to advance to a level of importance. Also many of the systems of accountability for front line employees are antiquated and do not account for reality, another unfortunate but true reality of this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They need to listen to their employees! They might be surprised that some of the best ideas come from the people who actually interact with the customers.

    Pros

    Flying benefits are great, and the work is interesting. Depending on what team you are on you might have opportunities to work on great projects.

    Cons

    The company is becoming increasingly political, and there is much favoritism. Many teams do not try to promote from within, and growth within the company is difficult. The culture is changing.

    I have been working at JetBlue full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    I've worked in various departments at JetBlue, so I will start with a disclaimer that not all departments are great. However those that live the company values and have strong leadership are great and thrive very well. Crew members who are willing to learn and willingly get to know various parts of the company can be handsomely rewarded with a promotion in a short amount of time.

    Cons

    Operational support analysts have little direction which leads to high turnover or people stuck in the same role for long periods of time. You certainly choose your own direction at JetBlue, and if you don't make the most of it, it could get stale fast. Also, lower than market pay for corporate employees.

    I worked at JetBlue full-time (more than 10 years)

    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.
