    I have been working at Northwest Airlines

    Pros

    Still not liquidated. The future must be better than the last 10 years. Bankruptcy is hard to go through, and at least they survived. In this environment it is difficult to have a good job with benefits and pay.

    Cons

    The company has almost no respect or appreciation of employees. Although the market is terrible for airlines, Northwest strategy has always been to beat the employees and compensate them less than standard. They have shrunk for the last several years, so there has been little advancement. Employee morale is terrible. Some of that isn't the fault of nwa, as bankruptcy takes its toll. The money given to the top few for taking a career from the employees speaks a lot about nwa and corporate America.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Quit looking out for yourself and start trying to pull everyone together. Ever hear of Southwest Airlines.

    Pros

    You get excellent discounted or free travel opportunities and you will work in challenging industry gaining great work experience

    Cons

    There is no job security and long term potential due to merger with Delta Airlines. Compensation is slightly below average compared to other companies of similar size.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Unfortunately, they want to sell the company so what advice can you give them?
