Mismanagement

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

I worked at Northwest Airlines full-time for more than 10 years

ProsWent to some pretty good international locations. Most pilots and Flight Attendants were great to work with and hotels were decent for the most part.

ConsCut-throat management. Drove the company into bankruptcy and hired scab mechanics. Always maintained an adversarial relationship.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
