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

Pros

If you want to work in a family like environment then this is the place. The work pace is laid back and you don't have aggressive deadlines. And the flight benefits that you get is one of the best (since AA is such a big airline).

Cons

AA is not the best paymaster. The vacations you get are not sufficient. Growth opportunities are limited as there are lot of people who are sticking to the company just because of flight benefits, which creates a barrier for people to move up.

Advice to Management

Create more growth opportunities in the company. Reduce bureaucracy and increase pay.

    I have been working at American Airlines part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I love the people I work with. They is a variety, you never work with the same person/people twice in a row unless you want to. It can be a very fun job, going all over the place in the world.

    Cons

    Long hours, many nights in hotel rooms, and some obnoxious passengers.

    Advice to Management

    Why can we all share the sacrifice? Stop trying to make millions even during the bankruptcy. The gap between the top executive and lay employees is unbelievably enormous and it is only getting bigger.

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

    Pros

    Get to fly planes and travel.

    Cons

    Always away from family, they force you to work on your days off, crappy pay, almost all the captains you fly with initially are old, crusty, and horrible to fly with.

    Advice to Management

    Care about your employees
