    Pros

    Company kept its promise to recall me after 9/11 business slump and furlough. They even kept me on after closing my office, and I thought my only option was a layoff in 2002.
    American Airlines did its best to stay out of bankruptcy, but the unions declined major pay and benefits cuts time after time. Thank God I wasnt in a union. Now AA is in bankruptcy and the courts will decide who gets what pay, and who keeps their job... It's a tough cutthroat business.

    Cons

    Management is asking more and more productivity for less and less pay and benefits since 2009.
    Front line level management is a bit more dis-organized since positions were cut.
