    Pros

    Working for the world's largest airline with a massive route structure/franchise provides extraordinary opportunities for both professional and personal growth. Professional because you can move up--one recent CEO (Goodwin) started as a staff accountant, and I personally know many other upper level senior managers and executive (1 VP and several sub-VPs) who have risen through the ranks to very high level positions. Personal because you have amazing travel opportunities, and many jobs are available in multiple locations, especially airport and inflight operations and airport and inflight management.

    Also . . . airline culture is what keeps people together; most people love aviation and travel. Aside from business tension, the culture is great! Many people at all levels, love their jobs, because they love airplanes and they love travel.

    Cons

    Internal hires/promotions always pay less than "off the street" new hires from elsewhere. Labor and management seem constantly at odds, and pay is always low for non-management; only marginal to average for lower to mid-level management. Of course, upper level management does well.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on employee growth opportunities and hiring talent from within; pay in-company personnel market rates.
