Senior Manager of Software Engineering (Former Employee), Denver, Co – June 20, 2014
Jeppesen is using some of the latest technology in software development, but, they are not very mature or decided in their Software Development process, as they run a hybrid waterfall\Agile development process.
Supervisor - Global Navigational Services (Current Employee), Lombard - IL – June 17, 2014
Managed a production team for a sunseting product line.
Most people who work for the company believe in our products and want the company to be successful. The upper levels of management seem out of touch, and that leads to lots of messaging problems with the staff.
Boeing Contractor, NetJets (Current Employee), Columbus, OH – May 17, 2014
Pros: 3-4 days off, holiday pay, occassional lunchs provided
Cons: short or no offical breaks
I love aviation but this work environment is not for everyone. 24/7 operation with 12 hour shifts makes it hard to get things done on work days. Also being such a fast paced environment there's little time to actually get up during the shift which means a lot of sitting while navigating multiple systems. Just not healthy. Great management team works – more... with you and your schedule, understanding the shifts are not always condusive to peoples lifes. Wonderful co-workers with the same drive and passion. – less
order fullfillment/revisions (Former Employee), Inverness, FL – May 9, 2014
Pros: alot off overtime
Cons: short breaks
A day at work here is day filled with pilot maps. So you start to know places all around the world. Also have to pay attention to detail. For example you don't want the pilot flying to san juan costa rica. When they where schedule to fly to san jose Californa. So detail is key at this job.
Outstanding dedication to reliable mission critical solutions
PROGRAM MANAGER - NAVIGATION INFORMATION SERVICES (Former Employee), Denver, CO – February 3, 2014
Among all places I've worked on navigation and location based services, Jeppesen is uniquely remarkable for its dedication to providing the most dependable, accurate and up to date products available. Wherever I traveled in my work with Jeppesen at public events, customer would always seek me out to let me know how important the Jeppesen services were – more... to them - often relating stories of how Jeppesen's navigation services helped save lives. Very proud of this company. – less
Intel Systems Administrator (Current Employee), Denver, CO – August 28, 2013
Pros: work/life balance and benefits from parent company.
Cons: corporate restructuring, budget issues.
This company has some of the best people at work. Atmosphere sometimes is laid back although there are issues with budget and legacy system issues within its IT. It strives to grow large like its parent company, but it is restrained by its limited budget in certain areas. Right now it is going through downsizing and may end up like the typical corporate – more... restructure of laying people off than rehiring new ones. – less
EXCEL PERSONNEL-Revisions Expert (Former Employee), Aurora, CO – August 2, 2013
Pros: good work enviroment
Jeppesen in my opinion is a good place to work. The people are really nice and they are good at training and making sure you know what you are doing. The hours are good and pay is ok, not great but ok.
Market Operations Analyst (Former Employee), Denver, CO – March 6, 2013
Pros: awesome management with a hands-off, accountability-based style.
Cons: very lean organization with few permanent opportunities
Jeppesen is Boeing owned company with an outstanding group of individuals at its core. I was brought in as a contractor, and was embraced by the entire team. Everyone was more than happy to help show me the ropes and give me their personal insight into the aviation industry. On the downside, aviation is extraordinarily complex, and the vernacular is – more... a lengthy process to learn. Additionally, management is often completely swamped, and it could be difficult to raise concerns/questions. Days were typically very fast-paced with little down time, which is great if you're an energetic person like me, but I'm sure some may get burnt out. What I liked best was the receptiveness to change that was pervasive among most people there. If someone were to come up with a more efficient way of going about something, people would happily embrace it. – less
