Broken systems, no accountability, lack of focus

IT Project Manager III (Current Employee)
Seattle, WA (US)

I have been working at Alaska Airlines

ProsPersonal time off, flexible schedule, occasional telecommuting

ConsIT systems are old and in constant need of repair. Very limited investment in improving behind-the-scenes operations. As far as project management goes, the budgets are undefined because labor isn't planned or tracked well. Schedules are never met because resources are spread too thin and personnel don't feel compelled to meet a schedule. Scopes are constantly in flux.

Advice to Senior ManagementFocus! Implement and enforce use of a labor planning/time keeping tool that is easy to use. Make people accountable.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
