I worked at American Airlines

Pros

Flight benefits is the only benefit. Some people work hard and contribute to the success of the organization.

Cons

good ole boy network
lack of support for employee relations
politics dominate all interactions
senior management is antiquated
lots of dead weight managers

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Senior Management needs to read books on leadership in order to manage their employees better. Manage the employee base without intimidation/ punitive actions; learn the meaning of mentoring and developing talent and rewarding high performers.
