    I worked at Delta Air Lines

    Pros

    The company is doing very well economically right now. The people are great the work with and has almost a family like environment. The flight benefits are great but its easy to get stuck somewhere if you are not careful.

    Cons

    Pay is ok but not great. Typical office environment with few windows. There is always a lot of paperwork to do and communication between departments can be improved on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management has been doing a solid job in the last couple of years. Keep the company profitable and most will be happy.

    I worked at Delta Air Lines full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    worked at the "Home of Delta Airlines , Monroe, La ; along with some of the best people I know. To be able to work your shifts and swap your days to gain yourself a lengthy vacation ... Ex : a month. Employees & a companion of their choice could fly anywhere Delta flew if open seats . For FREE! Only opportunity I would've had to see the places I was able to visit.

    Cons

    Not many cons ... But there were a few stressful times ... The biggest Con was Terrorist attacks and TSA , we were always on the look out for anything suspicious . Stressful events of course would include delayed flights or cancelled flights due to various reasons !! Another would be lost luggage ! All in all , I loved my job and wish it was still there .

    Pros

    Delta offers a better salary and benefit package than other airlines. Flexibility in days off and free travel are incentives to stay at the company.

    Cons

    The health insurance has become much more costly in the past several years, although I'm sure it is the same as other travel industry careers.

    I worked at Delta Air Lines full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Good advancementg opportunities, respected employer, and of course travel benefits. Proud to have worked there over 25 years, but grateful to have retired.

    Cons

    Salaries are more based on what they think they can get away with vs. market based. No longer offer much professional development, you're on your own for maintaining training, licenses, etc. Work life balance will depend on your department/boss.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    An awful lot of "entry level vice-presidents", how about promoting a few from within?
