    Pros

    Outstanding senior management. High end risks are mitigated by strong and clear set short term goals. Keeping true to the Delta culture and difference keeps us separated from the pack.

    Cons

    Senior management (Senior GMs - Senior Executives) is Outstanding. Middle management (Supervisors - Junior GMs) could definitely use some work.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the course. I would much rather have a fiscally healthy company and job for years to come than to try and "keep up with Joneses" in such a volatile and unstable industry.

    Pros

    I worked at AA for 14 years and can't believe I wasted all those years at the wrong airline. Great leadership, an employer who respects it's employee groups and follows through on practicing what it preaches in terms of corporate culture.

    Cons

    Seniority based employee travel. It's the norm in the industry, but hurts compared to AA when you are new.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work. Your employees love this company and are your best source of advertising. Also, replace UHC for health insurance.

    Pros

    Richard leads our corporate leadership team with vision of excellence and humility in success. Delta Rulea of the Road set the standard for all Delta leaders and is demonstrated day-in and day-out by their actions. His job knowledge and awareness to the issues that impact and important to every work group is mind blowing. He truly understand the Delta people that make it all work.

    Cons

    Delta is just now reporting consistent profits. Employee groups are waiting to see how this will translate not only into improvements in pay but also in quality of work life improvements.

    Advice to Management

    Live my Rules of the Road, promote those that do the same, build your teams and we will keep climbing!!

    I worked at Delta Air Lines

    Pros

    Not really any pros just the fact that I was only working for a paycheck ONLY!

    Cons

    You can share your opinion all you want with management to try and better the company, but its unfortunately just one ear out the other. All they care about are your negative aspects.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your co-workers and treat them with more respect.
