    I worked at American Airlines full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Nice benefit package, most of them are good people

    Cons

    Everyone there has someone to assist them when they are fired unjustly (union) except salary/ management people. Also you are paid less because of your travel benefits

    I worked at American Airlines full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Challenging work Great co-workers Travel benefits Incredibly interesting field to learn about. Projects were exciting and you were allowed to make major decisions if you cared enough to do so. Lots of kind, smart people doing their best.

    Cons

    No opportunities for growth Very high workload Incredibly political Management is not at all transparent Bullies go unchecked The culture is going downhill--fast. Leadership says all the right things but then nothing comes of it. Very hierarchical with lots of hoarding of opportunity. You may enjoy it if you're in leadership, but anyone Level 4 and below has a much different experience.

    Advice to Management

    You're tone-deaf. Please stop saying one thing and doing another. Your people are too smart and see right through it. Don't say that you're offering early-outs so others can advance and then not advance anyone. You invest so much in employee surveys and then do nothing about it-- your "listening sessions" are ineffective and all talk. Remove toxic people before they ruin entire departments. Reward those who... actually do great work.

    401k, travel benefits, flexibility in your schedule once you reach a decent seniority.

    Flexibility, travel benefits, time off

    Cons

    Long work days, low pay, low morale, bad company culture, awful management

    Advice to Management

    Do better, for your customers and employees. Please put legacy AA management back in place. You all make this an awful place to work when this used to be a really fun job.

    Current Employee - Crew Scheduler 
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at American Airlines full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    The travel benefits are good but it is getting increasingly more difficult to use them because of how full the flights are. I think the direction the company is aiming for is awesome but I don't know how it will be executed.

    Cons

    The management is a mess. The merger on the FA side has caused so much confusion and the tools do not consistently work. The unions cause so much tension between the crew members and the company, that is causes a lot of animosity between the pilots/flight attendants and the schedulers.

    Advice to Management

    There needs to be more consistency with the Supervisors on the floor.
