    Pros

    leading-edge product: low-fare and high-frills US domestic (limited international) air travel Virgin global brand: huge brand loyalty

    Cons

    new CEO in 2008 dramatically changed workplace environment for senior management employees very low pay scale for cabin crews and other customer-facing employees

    Advice to Management

    you need to address the very high levels of turn-over since arrival of David Cush: 2 CFOs, constant turn-over in Finance area, 2 heads of Tech Ops, new Chief Counsel, 2 heads of Marketing, 2 heads of Revenue, etc.
