    I have been working at American Airlines full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    - Great place to start your career and learn and grow your skills, you will be thrown into many interesting analytical problems to solve and you will have many experts who are willing to couch you. - Travel benefits are awesome, you can fly almost anywhere for free as a standby and many have visited most of the US and tens of countries in just few years.

    Cons

    Although you will progress quickly in the start, if you prove your technical skills, you will find later that moving into higher levels becomes much more difficult and takes a long time. there are not a lot of progress options for individual contributors unless you choose to go into management which is very competitive. Several end up leaving. Which lead to the next issue, depending on the department you work at, you might find a huge turnover (For some this might be a pro, I don't think so).
