    I have been working at US Airways full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Great people, benefits and schedules. Good training program. Excellent health benefit options and free flight benefits all around the world! Ability to trade/give away shifts if you need to rearrange your schedule, either to take advantage of the flight benefits or to care for family. Good opportunity for advancement.

    Cons

    Short breaks/lunches and very strict on attendance - but that is understandable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Love that all the managers have many years of experience with both companies to ensure a smooth transition to "The New American."

    Pros

    Demanding job with dynamic environment. If you want to travel and do something different almost every day, the engineering department is the place to be.

    Cons

    Work can be very stressful during mergers. Political environment can sometimes get into solving underlying problems. Wages are not that high as competitors, but that may change with merger with AA.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Employees have worked very hard to make a successful merger with American Airlines. Don't forget them and make sure that the profits and benefits to all employees are in par with what upper management got out this deal. It is sad to see how the CEO's package is almost 400 more than what the average employee makes.

    Pros

    Experience new places
    Always a new crew
    Great benefits
    Meet amazing people of all cultures

    Cons

    Away from home for up to 4 days but that's ok. This gives me the time to miss being home and not take my days off for granted.

    Pros

    As an airline employee you get severely reduced cost scheduled flights, or free flights as long as you can afford to get bumped.
    The interview process for technology personnel certainly weeds out those who shouldn't be hired.
    The group I was in heavily weighs fitting in with the team.

    Cons

    If you want to actually work and build on your skills, this isn't the place for you. Much of your time will be spent trying to figure out how to make it look like something was done, because your manager has to show progress where none was made.
    The free flights would be great, if you have time to use them. Within the group I worked it was more a case of putting out fires created by the lack of performing any actual work on the systems.
    However, if your personality doesn't fit in with the team, you will likely be looking for a new position very soon.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was unable to see above my direct manager, so I cannot provide any advice of value to senior management.

    Pros

    Very impressive.... The flight attendants that came to recruit in PHX. Proffessional, big smile, make you feel welcome. Please be your self.

    Cons

    It is true it is hard to get the flight attendant job. The process is long and you really have to be patient. In your heart this is what you really want.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep the flight attendant job selective and hired polite good manners people.

    Good Work-life balance, Upper Management is knowledgeable about the industry, opportunity for professional growth

    Need to communicate more at all levels about what is expected. Need to provide greater motivation for employees to stick around.

    Pros

    The training was excellent- very thorough and detailed.

    Cons

    The pay, benefits, promotional opportunities and support from Management are lacking in this company.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Some flight attendant supervisors do not understand what our job entails because they were never flight attendants. Before managers are brought on board, they should fly for a month and see what it is like for us. That way, they can actually tell us advise us on how to do our job better and support us when we need it most.
