    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at American Airlines as an intern (Less than a year)

    Pros

    -I generally agree with the corporate culture
    -Little supervision/micromanagement
    -Self-directed work

    Cons

    -In my department, as a co-op, it was nearly impossible to find someone who had projects that I could help with. My time was wasted and I didn't really learn anything applicable to engineering.
    -Overabundance of managers/leads. Confusing/conflicting information on who is responsible to who and for what.
    -Incredibly inefficient IT/office support. It took weeks for me to get a phone/computer/internet access/software.

    Advice to Management

    Play a more active role in training new members on the technical staff--help them to feel more included and relevant.
