I have been working at American Airlines full-time for more than a year

Pros

Travel Benefits if you can use them
Depending on your manager flexibility to work from home when needed
Good number of holidays

Cons

Can't use any earned vacation or sick days until the following year.
Very Political
Gets in their own way to making necessary changes
Poor employee training
Too much weight given to "Subject Matter Experts" rather than skilled IT professionals
Company has no idea what collaboration is or how to encourage it
Buildings are out dated and depressing to work in
Contractors are not treated well, but usually have the better skill set and understanding of how to make things happen
System Architecture is way to complicated
Too many dependencies on 3rd party systems

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Get rid of those that are stuck in the old ways and replace them with new skilled itelligent collaborative thinkers.
Get rid of the that's how we have always done it mentality
Train employees on the skills they need to do their jobs
Keep high performing project teams together
Tone down the politics

Doesn't Recommend
Negative Outlook
No opinion of CEO
