    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

    Flight benefits are great, it's easy to swap shifts if you want a flexible schedule, pretty decent healthcare benefits

    Cons

    Doesn't pay enough for the cost of living in the Washington DC area, too many managers and they all are not on the same page

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get more involved, have more briefings

    Pros

    Travel, travel, travel! Should be able to say the truth. That's what they are asking for

    Cons

    Not able to comment to a state you will be based. Do they really think you can survive on $11.00 an hour.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Share with people why or why not they didn't get the job.
