Disapproves of CEO

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

Pros

I can't think of any Pro's now, other than the travel benefits.

Cons

Poor management with the 'good ol' boy' system in place. Terrible moral due to the bankrupcy, no salary increases for lower management (level 1-4) in two years, no job security, reluctant to provide communication on bankrupcy issues. Basic benefits slashed. Vacations and holidays reduced. Only advancements is all who you know.

Advice to Management

Bring the non-union salaries up to par and share information about bankrupcy, mergers and contracts before releasing to the media.

    Pros

    Travel Benefits if you can use them
    Depending on your manager flexibility to work from home when needed
    Good number of holidays

    Can't use any earned vacation or sick days until the following year.
    Very Political
    Gets in their own way to making necessary changes
    Poor employee training
    Too much weight given to "Subject Matter Experts" rather than skilled IT professionals
    Company has no idea what collaboration is or how to encourage it
    Buildings are out dated and depressing to work in
    Contractors are not treated well, but usually have the better skill set and understanding of how to make things happen
    System Architecture is way to complicated
    Too many dependencies on 3rd party systems

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of those that are stuck in the old ways and replace them with new skilled itelligent collaborative thinkers.
    Get rid of the that's how we have always done it mentality
    Train employees on the skills they need to do their jobs
    Keep high performing project teams together

    Great people to work with. Flight benefits start from Day One. Benefits offered to part-time. Full-time opportunities available. Can pick up extra hours easily.

    Cons

    Part-time shifts can be extended without notice, including same day extension. Training is not in-depth.
