Flight benefits and the ability to transfer from work areas provides the ability to never get too bored at work.
Don't get sick! Every day you use counts as a point and you get disciplinary action up to and including termination. Unless you know the right people, you get hung out to dry.

Flight benefits are great when you have the time time to use them althought they are on standby basis only. great for family too.
Never know when the next round of layoffs are going to come, espicially if you are part-time. Layoffs used to be determined on seniority now it is part-time first then full time. We have 25 year part time employees being furloughed while 3 year full time employees hold a position.

The flight benefits are really great(if you can get on and if there's an empty seat). The co-workers are really cool and fun to work with. Being around the airplanes is also interesting and enjoyable at times.
Can be very stressful with trying to get the planes to depart on time and being around a loud and dangerous environment. Loading and unloading aircraft can be rough sometimes too.

Great health benefits flexible schedule
Salary does not provide for decent living. Most employees struggle to pay basic necessities. Cannot afford to take advantage of flight benefits due to no extra cash after bills are paid

Most of the benefits the company provide are competitive topped off by the flight benefit which are very generous. For the most part work expectations provides for a dedicated employee to maintain a good work-life balance.
At times there is the impression that you need to be part of a "club" to get ahead and prosper. If one manage to pass that threshold the opportunities become available.

The flight benefits can't be beat and the job is not difficult at all.
Low pay would be the only con really. The flight benefits make up for the low pay, but if you are not using the benefits or do not fly, then there is no reason to work for USAir or any airline with minimum wage starting salary.

Finance department has many strong leaders who support and care about there team members. Tasks and responsibilities are clearly laid out and most managers are able to effectively train analyst (us airways does not have a formal training process). Analysts are provided with a wide variety of responsibility and given freedom to showcase talents to senior leaders. The organization is very finance centric (extremely tight budget controls), so finance plays a major role in all company decisions, finance teams work very closely with business groups which allows for a lot of relationship building throughout the company. Finance department will be leaving phoenix but the same leaders are taking over the department at the new AA. I would expect the US Airways culture to take over at AA.
Employees are underpaid and due to this overall talent level is lacking in some departments. Incentive based bonus and annual salary increase are minimal. Due to this many employees who have been working at the company for 5+ years are ok with just doing enough to get by. Without an MBA it is very hard to rise in the finance department. Flight benefits are the main selling point to work for an airline. But flights are often full and using benefits to get anywhere you need to be is very unreliable. Employees are only given 12 vacation days and it takes 5 years to earn a few more days (strictly enforced). Due to limited vacation taking advantage of your flight benefits can be challenging. Company is very cheap, which results in very cheap technology.

Great flight benefits, medical benefits and mostly good people to work with in the IT Department. Easily able to change schedule and trade shifts.
flight benefits are all stand by basis, the IT department has nepotism when hiring for upper level positions. HR is for the company and not for the employee, so beware if you need to go to HR with an issue. The pay is cut way down because they decided that the flight benefits out weigh the pay.

Great Flight Benefits and station agreements were awesome
It's a large corporation and you are just a number to them, they don't know you personally and nor do they care!

First of all, the company is in a great location as Tempe and the Greater Phoenix area is a wonderful place to live. The airline industry is very interesting to work in. It is a challenging environment to work in, but satisfying. The flight benefits are also a plus as I consider this part of my benefits package. Overall positive working environment.
As we all know, the airline industry is very volatile right now with rising fuel costs so there is always a threat of cutting sercvice which would mean downsizing for the entire company. Salaries also are not the most competitive.1
