    I have been working at Delta Air Lines full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Awesome company to work for! Fun work environment, cares about employees, great uniforms, competitive pay, just an awesome company to work for! They are very flexible, you can live anywhere in the world you want, as long as your able to get to work when you need to be there!

    Cons

    At the end of the day, it is a very large corporation. So it is very easy to become just a "number" in the company. The flight attendant group is not unionized, so rules can change very often. Make sure your time management is impeccable, because you cannot be late for work AT ALL, and there aren't many acceptable excuses, even rain is not an excuse.

    Advice to Management

    Hire inflight managers that understand what it's like to be a flight attendant. Hiring from other departments to manage flight attendants with no inflight experience is counterproductive to me.

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

    Pros

    Everything you need in a employer. Great pay, great benefits, 401k match, affordable health insurance, monthly bonus, yearly profit sharing was > 20% Gross salary in 2015. ( And that aint peanuts.....) Safe environment. Management is low pressure and very understanding. NO AMT UNION.
    It shows that you don't need a union if you treat employees with respect.
    Anybody that complains about this job needs their head examined. Or they never worked in the real world, prior.

    Cons

    Top out payscale takes a little too long.
    But it's worth the wait.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure you maintain proper training for management and leadership position.

    I have been working at Delta Air Lines full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great leadership; top pilot pay rates worldwide; highest profit sharing for any public company, worldwide; best maintained aircraft fleet, worldwide; great travel benefits, good 401K on top of excellent pay rates, exceptional flight training.

    Cons

    Industry average medical, dental, and sick leave. Below average ground training/too much reliance on remote training. Inferior Crew Resource Management training. Inferior technology across the airline for the past 30 years. Mid - level management is extremely weak.

    Advice to Management

    Promote more line Flight Attendants to Flight Attendant leadership positions. All supervisors should be qualified for the positions they command and should work the line on a regular basis. Lead by example, supervisors should fly 60% of all holidays.
