"Warm sunny traffic."

Senior Systems Engineer:
American Airlines has become a “sweat shop”. My first three years there was great. I rarely worked after hours and the stress was minimal as long as work was completed on time. Not sure why it changed, but about a year ago our team started getting focus for the wrong reasons. Since then a lot of unruly demands started coming from management. I was impacted by a layoff in August. I have no ill will towards the company. However, I have to say they do not pay market for my skillset or experience. The benefits are not that great either. Mediocre at best. I would be hesitant to work for this company if I were someone looking at a position. There are better companies I feel that treat employees right than American Airlines.
