    I worked at US Airways full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    * Great benefits (if you don't fly during any busy time, standby works decently)
    * Everyone is nice and professional

    Cons

    * Big company, so a bit slow at changing things/ being adaptive, especially with management

    I worked at US Airways full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay & benefits are good
    The customers are great

    Cons

    They lacked teamwork and would argued over who should do which tasks.
    Since they have been there since America West so I don't see it improving any time soon.

    I never got the free travel since I was new.

    Advice to Management

    Perhaps some team building courses would help - and defining who does what.

    I worked at US Airways full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Flight benefits - if you use them. Cheaper cost of living in AZ and Tempe is a great little city. Some of the other employees are fun to hang out with. US Airways has decent brand awareness in this town (keep in mind I didn't say brand equity - it's not well-liked, just well-known).

    Cons

    Cheap company - you're often overworked because your department is understaffed. Upwards movement is highly political, not meritocratic - you better pucker up. This is also a company with no imagination because margins are tight and senior leadership is very cheap so only bottom-line driven decision-making has any room at the company. They don't care about the high employee turnover so your pay WILL be low.

    Advice to Management

    I have no advice to give management. They need to be excised - plain and simple. Legacy airlines don't care much for their employees and they still care more than US Airways does. Doug Parker is pathetic. His legacy is meaningless and he will be remembered as such.

    Nice office space, conveniently located in Tempe.

    Generic corporate enviorment, not a lot of energy among workers.

    Offer a more valuable internship opportunity.

    I worked at US Airways full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Worked here for several years in IT and the company as a whole is great, but there is a lot of favoritism among management and saw many peers get treated differently and get away with VERY lax hours. Benefits are average, but the standby flights are nice if you can get on. The Legacy US Airways system is leaps and bounds above the AA Employee travel system however - and the company chose to keep most of the AA systems.

    Cons

    Low pay compared to other IT companies in the valley. Could earn at least 10-15% more elsewhere. But then a lot of people barely work 6 hours a day judging by the empty car park at 9am and 3pm.

    Advice to Management

    Provide employees with a career path and growth options. The company-wide pay raises the last 2 years were nice, but the pay is still sub-par in the Arizona marketplace.

    I worked at US Airways full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The people are the best reason to work here. It felt like a crazy, great, dysfunctional family. I've some of best moments of my life there.

    Cons

    Very low salaries and the divisions between the US Airways and American Airlines, as well as the divisions between the old "East" and the "West" employees from the US Airways and America West merger.

    Advice to Management

    Significantly raise wages. Don't look down on the US Airways employees, now that it's officially American Airlines.
