    Travel benefits one of the best of the industry, Profit sharing and performance bonus.

    StarStarStarStarStar Current Manager in Minneapolis, Minnesota

    The flight benefits are (of course) amazing. We get to do so much more travel with our young family than we ever would otherwise. The insurance is much better than I had realized vs. all of my friends and family at other companies. The cost is reasonable, and shared by the company. The 401k match is 1-for-1 up to 6%, and the company contributes an additional 2% (maybe 3% now) on top of that, so for putting in 6%, you see approx. 15% of your annual salary headed into your 401k. Also, profit sharing (very generous - absolutely the best in the industry!). Delta paid out the highest single employee bonus in the history of the USA - of any company - ever. WOW!
