    Pros

    Incredibly stable work environment for IT. Many of my coworkers had 20+ years with the company. Challenging work with lots of interesting problems to solve.

    Mixed technologies. Some applications that we worked with were more than 30 years old and some was very cutting edge. Culture is not very innovative. There is a lot of "we do it that way because that's the way we've always done it".

    Pros

    There are so many ways to get involved with professional growth, philanthropic efforts, mentoring, and cross-training. Most employees are there because they love the aviation industry, so generally everyone is willing to help you with whatever you need. Resources are plentiful, benefits are good. If you love to travel, and you want room to grow, American is a wonderful place to be.

    Cons

    With all big companies comes some politics and hoops to jump through.
