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

    Pros

    I miss working with Delta so much. I quit because I had a newborn at the time and was based in New York which was a doubletter commute. It was tough so I resigned and have regretted it since then. I loved my job! It was my dream job and I was lucky enough to get to do it. I had a little bit of seniority so I was able to make my work schedule a little more flexible. I met some wonderful people and saw some amazing places and learned a lot about other cultures. My benefits were great! I felt like management always had my back and although you rarely flew with the people you still felt like a big family. After all, you never know who your going to eating Thanksgiving dinner with!

    Cons

    Sometimes your day can start out looking like a piece of cake and turn into a long nightmare just to get to your layover city to find you have no hotel but it always works out in the end. Delta always takes care of you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It has been 7 years since I left and I honestly had no complaints with anything or anybody at Delta. I felt like they always anticipated our wants and needs. I wouldn't want to come back if I had any significant issues.

    I have been working at Delta Air Lines full-time (less than an year)

    Pros

    Wonderful work environment - everyone is willing to help. Work can be cyclical but work-life balance is generally great. Travel and benefits are fantastic and perfect for those with a bit of a risk tolerance.

    Cons

    Because employees remain with the company for so long promotions are hard to come by. Senior leadership advocates for an open-door policy but their actions do not reflect their speech.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in the younger employees - especially if you want them to remain with the company.

    Best internship/co-op opportunity by far for a college student

    I worked at Delta Air Lines as an intern (more than an year)

    Pros

    Having an internship or co-op here while going to college is so ideal because there will never be a time when you have the time, energy, and lack of responsibilities that allows you to take advantage of the flight benefits you get with this company. You are able to use your flight benefits during your school semesters too, which is not offered by all airlines.

    Cons

    Depending on your department, it is not common for co-ops and interns to get hired back for a full time position. The majority of students I know that have worked for Delta work for a different company upon graduation.

    I have been working at Delta Air Lines full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    flexibility, travel benefits, good insurance and 401K benefits. opportunity to fly international if desired. Professional working environment. Easy jump seat policy to travel when commuting.

    Cons

    You can't make plans that you can count on during the month due to being on reserve when you start working. It takes a while for pay to be high enough to lie comfortably.

    Pros

    The flight benefits, while a challenge to use sometimes, are wonderful. Flexibility is the key. Overall Delta has a great culture. I've seen the company in bad time and in good time and now is a great time to work for Delta. People are friendly and the company is really investing in their employees now that financially the industry is moving forward. Delta is leading the way.

    Cons

    Work-life balance in Finance can be a challenge

    Pros

    Flight benefits! Great culture that celebrates its people.

    Cons

    Middle management (in an attempt to please upper management as the pressure is on to outperform already high performance) can be very political and cut throat. Organization can be very siloed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great Senior Leadership team. Middle management (in an attempt to please upper management as the pressure is on to outperform already high performance) can be very political and cut throat.
