    I worked at American Airlines full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Great recognition from other companies - and travel the world while you work

    Cons

    A shrinking company in a shrinking industry. Growth masks many problems, and American's are laid bare. Impossible to promote even the best people when they're shedding talent rapidly.

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

    Pros

    Offers a service that will continue to be in high demand into the future, travel benefits a nice perk.
    Good medical benefits.

    Cons

    Too much competition in the industry, low growth potential and career potential.
    Discouraging to go from industry leader to bankruptcy in just over a decade.
    Bad employee / management relations.
    Modest pay for all except top executives and pilots.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Improving morale of employees and good relations with the traveling public is a must.
    The business model is broken, must offer better travel experience while cutting costs and improving revenue.

    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    No opinion of CEO
