Student Stories: Kristen Oldenburger

Kristen Oldenburger is interested in the business of flying, particularly in how to keep an airline aloft in a rather competitive climate. Up to this point, however, she's done most of her work at ground level, for the FAA, the National Transportation Safety Bureau, and a few startup airlines.

Correspondents Scott Rolph and Michelle Choate sat down with Kristin to discuss her ideas on the future of the aviation industry, witnessing New Year's Eve fireworks over the Sydney Harbor, and her plans for learning to fly.

They point to companies such as Southwest Airlines (LUV) that for years have produced industry-leading profits, strong customer satisfaction ratings, and placement on Fortune and other lists as among the 100 best places to work. Kaiser Permanente is a similar operation in health care, as is Integrated Packaging in small-scale manufacturing; SAS in software services, as well as Costco (COST) or Wegmans in retail. The list … Read More »The post How Corporate America can create better jobs — Thomas Kochan appeared first on MIT Sloan Experts.
