A decent company held back by a terrible culture

Pros

Great views from the cockpit. Pretty nice hotels. Perdiem is more than enough for the road. Lots of days off if you have seniority. One of the few union jobs left.

Cons

Stressful training events. An unforgiving management that is quick to fire you. You feel like a number not, an employee with a name.

Advice to Management

Work on changing the culture, and everything else will fall in place.

    Pros

    After 911, not much, good hours, earned vaction time, not many holiday's, low pay make it easy to look elsewhere

    Cons

    You get flight privledges, whatever, they don't pay the bills, take 2-4 day to fly and come home making your vacation abot 3-3.5 days, IF you have any money when you get there

    Advice to Management

    Pay attention to the non union workers that are the back bone of the industry. I enjoy my job but we're $10-20,000 below the industry standard in pay.

    Pros

    Great recognition from other companies - and travel the world while you work

    Cons

    A shrinking company in a shrinking industry. Growth masks many problems, and American's are laid bare. Impossible to promote even the best people when they're shedding talent rapidly.
