    Pros

    Free Coffee, Unlimited PTO, Decent Technology

    Cons

    Negative environment for females, those that identify as females, and employees over 50 (if there are any still there after the last layoff). It's a boys only club and they won't let you forget it.

    Unique business, but disorganized chronically

    Jan 10, 2019 - Analyst 
    Recommend

    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Combination of many complex technologies and challenges, which leads to many opportunities to find something fun or interesting to do in any engineering domain - telecom, satcom, networking, ecommerce, global logistics and fleet maintenance, HW design-testing-integration, UX, IP-TV, aircraft engineering, big data, data science.

    Cons

    Chronically extremely disorganized, upper management does not seem able to turn business around; very uneven level of people, if you are lucky your team will have good management and talent that is fun to be around.

    Much dysfunction behind a lot of talk

    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Interesting product that, with the right innovations, has a lot of potential.

    Cons

    -Positions are described to sound very appealing but the reality is that there is a lot of dysfunction. -Opportunities for advancement are presented as being there but the reality is they are few and far between. -The respect that candidates are given during the recruiting process quickly disappears once you are hired. -Crazy expectations about the amount of hours you are expected to work. -Compensation is adequate but don't get fooled by what amounts to a very optimistic and idealized presentation of the overall compensation package and benefits that occurs during the hiring process. -Lots of questions about future of a product that is actually in a pretty perilous position. Lots of market penetration but ask around and you'll find that there is a great deal of customer satisfaction.

    Growth is a double edged sword

    Aug 5, 2016 - Senior Predictive Analytics Analyst in Chicago, IL
    Recommend
    CEO Approval
    Business Outlook

    Pros

    Many managers and above have very flexible work from home and non-office hours. (Worker bees have considerably less or none). For now - good benefits, employee stock plan (that has not performed well long-term), matching 401K, bonus potential, office next to the Metra and French Market, roof deck, game floor, and fun events. There are also prayer rooms, mothers' rooms, and other amenities. Gogo has a high degree of diversity, that also comes with it, the use of foul language, attire issues, interpretation of the truth (trust), and negative treatment of subordinates (including contractors). The company's toleration level to these issues largely depends on the degree of perceived importance of the individual and/or their management level. The company continues to grow.

    Cons

    If you work to live - within many teams you will likely have your life taken from you. In some teams, work life balance is made into a mockery - individuals are frequently called during their vacations, called back-in, and some teams are discouraged from taking vacation time during a month(S) of the summer. Last minute/emergency travel is not uncommon. In many teams, if you are not scrambling 24x7 there may be some question as to how needed/valuable you are. Some departments have more managers plus directors than workers. Having a manager as a work filter/prioritizer/buffer is a rare arrangement to have. Due to some managers' work from home schedules - getting a timely response from your manager can be an enormous challenge. There are too many primo/prima donnas running around Gogo below the C-level. The trust level toward this management group is very low. Compared to other companies this group is unusually resistant to feedback/actual change. Gogo is continually on fire and in catch-up/reaction mode. Planning for growth in many respects was not thought through and/or is being left for other entities to fix. Gogo frequently operates in one of two modes of either analysis by paralysis where important known problems linger on in disbelief or executive hunches consume inordinate amounts of resources to chase the wrong blip. The general employee stress level causes additional mistakes to be made and has burned many employees out. Departments have duplicated projects and responsibilities. Too many directors and above are trying to individually find something impressive to showcase instead of collaborating/aligning with other teams. Gogo has too many people in management to compensate for poor management. The wrong people are promoted based on traits other than skills, experience, and leadership/managerial capability, people skills. Employees do not have annual goals set until around mid-year (end of May) and are graded at year-end, leaving many employees at the arbitrary discretion of whether their manager likes them or not after having wasted some of the first six months of the year working on the wrong or non-contributing efforts.

    Pros

    Headed in the right direction. Great outlook, leader in the industry. Extremely fast paced. If you are used to the old giant corporate way of doing things, this isn't a place for you. Competitive and fun!

    Cons

    Slow at getting the wrong people out the door. other than that, i have nothing bad to say.
