I worked at American Airlines full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Great flight benefits, diverse employee base, very fast paced, get to work with some very smart people and learn a lot in a short time.

Cons

Lots of politics! Full flights so using flight benefits are difficult. Very long hours at office, lots of work trips which are not ideal if you have family with young kids. Compensation is not in line with work hours

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Your unions are dictating the future of this company. You need to re-energize your workforce and you need to hold all employees accountable - union and non union. Sleeping on the job should be a terminate on the spot and lose all benefits offense.....maybe then you might get some work done on midnight shifts.
