    I saw the best of times and now the worst of times, since they filed for backruptcy. Overall, it was a wonderful, life.

    I have been working at American Airlines full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    I traveled to parts of the world that I would have never seen had I not applied with American Airlines.
    I learned tolerance regarding cultural differences.

    Cons

    Once 911 occured, everything in the airline industry changed for the worst. There is a lot of management manipulation. All the airlines have filed for Bancruptcy. My pay has been reduced by
    50% since 2003.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Treat your front line employees like gold. Stop taking money from us and lining your own pockets with large bonuses every year. It's very insulting to us, and creates poor moral.

    I have been working at American Airlines full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great people, great managers at the airport and in the headquarters office. Flexible time off, some office managers can work from home occasionally, lots of vacation after 15 years.

    Cons

    Paid a LOT less than other in similar positions, up to 25% less. Executive management is somewhat out of touch with the customer experience as well as the employee experience. Lot of angry airport employees. Respect your employees' time off. You work all the time.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Put the employee satisfaction first and you will have happy customers and shareholders.
