    No more Delta as we knew it

    Information Technology (Former Employee) Hapeville, GA

    ProsGreat benefits, good salaries, used to work with great people

    ConsNew Northwest management has busted up a great thing. All about advancing Northwest folks. Sadly it's now about money and power. Don't turn your back.. It's now Northwest hiding behind Delta's good name/brand.

    Delta/NWA Blending

    Scheduler (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsProud to work for a worldwide airline and in an ever-changing industry.

    ConsFor the most part there were little consideration given to Northwest employees and the systems we had in place which made Northwest and ultimately Delta a international competitor. Many of the Northwest managers and administrative staff were nudged out with downsizing and a passive aggressive and unprofessional treatment. Not willing to adapt and work as a team. Pay was not equitable to Northwest personnel at the time of the merger. We had to prove ourselves.

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep an open-mind to experienced personnel, open communication through the ranks, use common sense and change the "good ol' boys" attitude toward career advancement for everyone.

    ProsCompany is performing better than ever, Opportunities for interns/co-ops to work on real projects and shine

    ConsCo-workers within headquarters can sometimes be much older and hard to connect with, Delta sometimes has a very slow way of going about business that can be frustrating, Didn't really see how I would progress through my career if I chose to come back for full time

    Advice to Senior ManagementPromote more of a fast paced and demanding work environment within headquarters

    Nice place to work

    Flight Attendant (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsVery well trained staff and excellent aircraft fleet.

    ConsTraining was very thorough, but I had to pay my way through it. The cost was tough since I was technically not employed by Delta and I would not be able to work while I was in training.

    Advice to Senior ManagementBeing chosen as a flight attendant, I would have had a better experience if the company would have provided some kind of training salary. We ended up with many people in our class that were still being supported by their parents. When we started working, we had no training for the day to day operations.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
