    I have been working at American Airlines

    Pros

    Flight Benefits - All employees get to fly for next to nothing as stand by passengers anywhere that American flies.
    Compensation - Excellent pay for a college internship position.
    Management - Engineering Leads and Managers are intelligent and fair, most have worked their way up to their position from the very bottom.
    Experience - Many employees have 10+ years of experience in their field and several have 20 or 30+ years.

    Cons

    Outdated technology - many processes are outdated but still functional
    Some corporate inefficiencies - IT is slow to respond, Lots of redundant systems/paperwork

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be stricter on inefficiencies. Do not allow employees to continue to work at a rate or make mistakes that cost the airline money. Trim the fat.
