    Approves of CEO

    I worked at American Airlines full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Management interested in developing staff and using evolving technology to improve processes.

    Cons

    At least in my department, many were 'old school' and resistant to change, which made for a negative working environment at times. This is relevant to the department in which I worked only.

    Advice to Management

    Consider remote work for positions that don't require being in a physical office every day.
