    I have been working at American Airlines full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great job. The flexibility makes the job so worthwhile. I wouldn't trade this job for any job in the world. It's all about seniority!

    Cons

    All nighters are exhausting. Lots of hotels near the airport as opposed to downtown these days which makes for a far less fun layover.

    Advice to Management

    lots of changes with the merger - management should take into consideration more the happiness of its employees. I do believe this job is worse than it used to be. But far better than the period just prior to bankrupty.

    I worked at American Airlines full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Decent hours, good normal benefits like 401K, sick leave, pension, etc.. Great unique benefits that extend beyond employer provided. Air Travel at pennies on the dollar, travel industry discounts around the world.

    Cons

    The pay is very average. In the IT industry, pay is about 40% of what the non-airline industry pays.

    Advice to Management

    upgrade the pay system as well as getting the pre merger benefits back to where they were.

    Pros

    At the time good pay and benefits.

    Cons

    Tamara Wells at American Airlines in Cary, NC forged my signature to obtain my medical information. When this was reported American Airlines they retaliated against me and also used their influence to get other companies and agencies to do the same. Some of the biggest companies the use to assist them in the retaliation was Citibank (with whom they had their AAdvantage mileage program) and AIG (who managed their workmen's comp insurance) and these companies use other local companies, agencies, schools , attorneys, etc. to participate in this retaliation. They have use kick backs, contracts, business opportunities, offers of employment with themselves or sister companies. AIG has even used Deutsche Bank to filter their paperwork to help cover up their retaliation. Someone coined the term "corporate sociopaths" to describe this kind of behavior. I call it criminal, and violations of many laws including RICO. American Airlines is relentless and heartless.

    Advice to Management

    The atmosphere of bullying and retaliation against whistles blowers and employees in general.
