Thread regarding American Airlines Group Inc. layoffs

Terrible IT Management at American Airlines

I just want to say that AA has the worst technology group of any company I’ve worked for. It’s shocking how disorganized they are and how poorly they understand the real value of good IT practices. I’ve witnessed abuse of employees and failure to hire real talent. I’ve worked for many companies in North Texas and this was the worst implementation of IT or any group I’ve seen yet.

The rot starts at the top. There is a reason AA is in deep debt and behind all the other airlines. Management is the reason. If you are in IT avoid this company at all cost. Work where your effort can and will make a difference. Just not AA.

I agree, the management is intentionally abusive, especially in enterprise hub where a Chinese female was promoted two levels up from architect to a sr manager poisiton.

I agree! I worked with a group of former AA IT people at another DfW company. It felt like a time warp and it didn't take too long for the abuse to start up. I hired a lawyer and filed with the EEOC, and it got worse so my lawyer filed retaliation. Within days, the bad people were "exploring opportunities outside of the company", lol. But the damage was done, so I got a nice big settlement to resign. While I'm sad that you had a bad experience with them, I'm glad that you got away from that toxic bunch. Wishing you the best.
