    Pros

    It's a tough career choice, but at Eagle, it's more of a job. Do your time, cover your ass and watch your back, trust no one in management, keep low profile. You will get paid, but make sure youre not shorted by overworked book keepers. I had more fun and enjoyment being a charter pilot back in the day. Steady work is good.

    Cons

    work schedule quaility declining=less quality of life. No real management leadership from such a management heavy organization. Old style top-down management. You are a number, nothing more, nothing less. Your input doesn't matter, suggestions are not headed. Pay stagnant and benefit costs increasing. Paychecks need constant attention...so many contractual language issues that you can get the short end if you don't watch it. Very low overall moral. Many of us were recruited with promises of career progression, flowing into AA, but it hasn't really happened.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Time for all new blood, new way of doing things. When passengers/employees are not happy, you're just a declining decaying dinasour. Give employees the tools (working air-carts/GPU/jet-bridge/de-ice trucks. Enpower front-line personal to make a difference and a decicision instead of being scared to act so nothing gets done or fixed.
