    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    American Airlines has a good retirement program.

    Cons

    What once was an amazing place to work has now become a hostile environment. Management has no respect for their employees which in turn trickles down to how employees treat customers. Employee morale is extremely low. Basically, you have the trickle down effect from management. When employees are treated with hostility, the employees, in return, treat customers the same way. There needs to be a revamping of management all the way to the top. This airline will die if it continues on the road it has been on for the past several years.

    Advice to Management

    When employee appreciation and respect begins from management, you will see employee morale and customer service improve and ultimately, a greater airline evolve. Until then, this airline will continue to digress.

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    Travel
    Easy job if you are in HQ
    Great work/life balance. They can't afford laptops so you really don't bring work home with you.

    Cons

    Not very professional managers. Very low skill level with zero leadership training.
    Middle management doesn't do much to develop employees.
    Managers are simply Sr Analysts with bigger cubes.
    Most nepotistic place I've worked. If you have a good degree or MBA, go somewhere to really learn about business.

    Advice to Management

    Good gosh, flatten that organization out. I know that you want to create 30 layers to give people a chance to have a career. At some point, the effectiveness of the organization is compromised due to bad middle management. NOTE: A good analyst does not make a good manager.
