    I worked at American Airlines full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Most of the workers were nice. Flight benefits were good if you could actually get on a flight. pay was ok.

    Cons

    Management has no vision. They don't know talent when they see it. Hopefully with USAIR coming in they can get rid of the fake it to make folks which is rampant. Management does no grooming of folks so training is nonexistent to move up. Very passive aggressive and serious bully tactics that they say are just being professional. NOT!!! The buddy system is the norm for you to move up or just dumb it up to move up that's if they like you. Forget leaving on time if weather moves in. Management still can't figure it out to lead the operation.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get your act together and know when people are trying they want to be acknowledged. listen to whats around you but don't put stock in all you hear like one managing director does for his fake it to make it pay check. Know what your employees do to get you the numbers your looking at. Serious sensitivity classes needed for management as well as classes for the bullying tactics that go on in management. no one should feel utterly sick just to come to work. Witnessed daily!
