    I worked at Delta Air Lines

    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?

    Pros

    Free Flights if you can get on
    Worldwide destinations
    Friendly coworkers
    Flexible Schedules

    Cons

    Ready reserve
    1300 hr per year cap
    pay drops down IF you can get full time
    Too Seniority driven (job advancement, standby boarding)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get rid of ready reserve, make it easier to transfer to full time. stop making flights based on seniority. Real life doesnt work that way
