Too much bs'ing, trust the people who actually deal with what is currently going on. Even at the regional level life is ok..... unless your some idiot flying for key lime....

Remember there is always going to be that 2% of pilots who B*tch and moan about everything..... they're at every airline.... trust me.
OK so you are interning at UAL, which means you are enrolled in an university. So, out of curiosity, how much will the monthly payment be on the debt you have accumulated learning to fly and obtaining your college degree?

How much do you expert to earn, per month, when you graduate from university? Who will be providing you with health insurance when you graduate and how much will it cost you do you think?

Let's start with the answers to those questions, then we can evaluate if the b*ing and moaning is warranted.
