    I have been working at American Airlines full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    This job has good benefits including flight benefits, 401k, health insurance, and competitive pay. The safety culture does a great job of protecting workers and the union representation is awesome.

    Cons

    The work involved with this position is hard, especially on the body. While there are safety procedures put in place to protect workers, it is still difficult work to be done. It is also challenging to get promoted in a union environment.

    I have been working at American Airlines full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The flight benefits are great and I love the technical nature of the work. The projects are interesting and ever evolving technology ensures constant critical thinking and a delightful lack of routine. I enjoying putting together analyses that have so many moving parts and playing detective in an effort to pin down the unknowns.

    Cons

    My one complaint is a big one, that is destroying an otherwise extremely fulfilling job. As a female, I am paid 25% less than men with similar education and experience, despite being considered a lead and even training one of the new guys who earns 25% more than I do with less experience and otherwise equal qualifications. I've discussed this discrepancy with my manager and the response is always the same - "we're working on it".

    Advice to Management

    Salary discrepancy should come from differences in qualifications, responsibility, performance, and negotiating skills, not gender. Initial offers for comparable candidates should be comparable.

    Pros

    The flight benefits allow you to go and see parts of the country and world that you wouldn't normally be able to afford.

    Cons

    The industry has been shaky and under pays engineers.

    Advice to Management

    The new USAirways management is very military like with decisions made at the upper levels without getting input from the 'experts' doing the work. This leads to less than optimum decisions at times and is making the people feel like clerical help carrying out the tasks they are told to do.

    Flight benefits. Cost of living in Tulsa, OK is low.

    I worked at American Airlines (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Co-workers are nice and support each other. The people are fun and the pay and benefits are (were) great.

    Cons

    The company has been in the process, at least at the Tulsa Maintenance facility, of trying to change the "culture" and it has disrupted the workers and the work flow out on the hanger floors. But maybe this change has been accomplished, I don't know. Been gone a few years now.

    Advice to Management

    You can't treat employees with McGregor's Theory X approach which is basically a pessimistic view of employees. So lighten up! Management is responsible for the majority of bad attitudes at AA.
