    Lots of changes over the years

    Senior Customer Service Agent (Current Employee) Norfolk, VA

    ProsJob security, excellent training, benefits

    ConsRotating shifts, lack of personal growth, strange shift hours, one benefit: flying space available - is not longer a good benefit since flights are always full. My pay was all over the map and the company contributions to my 401K were changed to Delta stock. When we went through bankruptcy the stock bottomed out - all the match was gone.
    I took an early retirement package in early 2006

    Delta is a great place to work

    Finance Analyst (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA

    ProsGreat people, interesting industry, free flight benefits and opportunity to work a flex schedule

    ConsLow salary because they are a premiere employer in the area, mediocre health benefits with lots of out of pocket costs, and flight benefits are not what they use to be because there are fewer and fewer flights. You can barely use the flight benefits because you cant make the plane, especially with a family. Also, there is very little room for advancement

    Advice to Senior ManagementBetter health and flight benefits

    Overall it was a great experience

    Customer Service (Former Employee) Hebron, KY

    Prosthe flight benefits were nice, good insurance was offerd, the opportunity for personal growth were good, compensation was adequate, promotions were available with hard work

    ConsIt was extremely difficult to continually work nights, weekends and working most holidays. Irate customers were often when flights were oversold or there were irregular operations. Passengers did not have flexibility and they would often take it out on agents.

    Contract Business Analyst

    Senior Business Analyst (Current Employee) Eagan, MN

    ProsGood project methodologies, smart people, fair compensation and a strong work ethic are common. The project teams have a good mix of skills and experience.

    ConsOffice Politics are always a challenge in a large company and Delta is no different. Sometimes people play power games instead of focusing on the work to be done.

    Advice to Senior ManagementUpper management is for the most part very cool and competent.

    Great opportunity to work on exciting projects but difficult to move upward.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsIf you like the airline industry, it gives you an amazing opportunity to work in a complicated and challenging environment. The company is pushing new technology and is focused on the customer experience. The flight benefits keep everyone at the company! Extremely accepting culture and a long history of fantastic philanthropic work throughout the world, not just in Atlanta (HQ).

    ConsExtremely political, overly corporate and difficult to get promoted. Meetings about having meetings, writing one deck after another. There is not a clear career path which frustrates most employees. Compensation is not on par with other industries which is supposedly countered with the travel benefits.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAdvocate for your team and help with career growth/advice.
