It's great if you are a full-time airline employee. . .not as a contractor.

Business Analyst (Former Employee)
Fort Worth, TX

ProsFast paced environment.
Good place to learn the airline industry.
There are good people to work with despite the bad apples.

ConsIf you are a contractor, don't expect equal treatment as the full-time employees do.
A lot of CYA.
Contractors are the first to be used as scapegoats for full-time employee incompetency.

Advice to Senior ManagementLearn that your greatest resource are the ones who have the most passion for their jobs and the success of the airline in mind. I saw too many good people let go for the wrong reasons. Promote from within, in particular the contractors, they are your greatest resource for new ideas. Encourage retirement for those employees that believe that doing the same things may have worked for the past 30 years ago does not translate in today's world.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Not Proud to be AA employee anymore

    Senior Analyst (Current Employee)
    Fort Worth, TX

    I have been working at American Airlines full-time for more than 10 years


    Pros: I can't think of any Pro's now, other than the… Cons: Poor management with the 'good ol' boy' system in place. Terrible moral due to the bankrupcy, no salary increases for lower management (level 1-4)… Advice to Senior Management: Bring the non-union salaries up to par and share information… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
