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

    Pros

    Large major airline with many retirements happening now, and continuing for several more years.

    Cons

    Since Deregulation, and 9/11, the career has gone downhill. Most routes outsourced to regionals. Management/Employee culture toxic.

    Advice to Management

    Yeah, right... Like they'll ever listen to front-line employees.
