    Pros

    The travel benefits are obviously a big draw. Organizational structure, high turnover, and challenging environment allow for competent people to take on a lot of responsibility early on.

    Cons

    Below-market pay, benefits, and job security (offset to some extent by travel benefits).

    Advice to Management

    Don't sell us short.

    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 Management

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