    I worked at Northwest Airlines

    Pros

    Plenty of opportunity to upgrade skills and transfers to wherever you wanted to work. Time off for "quality of life"issues (swapping days off with other employees) was really good

    Cons

    I enjoyed my time and opportunities at Northwest....Delta is just a whole different "management animal" and they like to micro-manage everything....and that stops you from becoming an effective employee....

    Pros

    Good benefits and a well run operation.

    Cons

    Large corporate structure that was not able to make change quickly.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Utilize the talent of all airline employees involved in the merger. Be respectful of the proud history of Northwest Airlines; don't try and erradicate the Red Tail employees.
