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

    Pros

    I've been at Delta for more than 10 years and our culture is alive and well -- working at Delta is unlike my previous employers. People are proud to work for Delta, enjoy the airline industry, enjoy the travel benefits, and feel they are contributing to the Company's success. I'd say there's a great amount of respect for our senior leaders and while the company isn't perfect everybody understands it will do what needs to be done to make things right.

    Cons

    Not many, to be honest. Great place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep walking the talk. Take care of the people and the rest will sort itself out. There are some (but very few) senior leaders who are not really Delta people and don't embody the rules of the road. Trust your instincts and manage them out.

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

    Pros

    I will say that Delta Air Lines is hands down the finest airline in the industry. They not only take care of their people in compensation (with huge raises over the last several years - and finally in an economically sustainable manner!), but also in advocating for public policy, contributing to the communities where their people live, and with an awesome benefits package!

    Cons

    This industry is fast paced, competitive, and grueling. If you don't want to work hard, and pull your own weight, while setting records for the finest service and operational delivery - maybe ever - then you need not apply. The hours are long, and customers can be unforgiving. Get ready to see your company as the scapegoat for any/everyone (including the POTUS.) However, they will have your back too!

    Advice to Management

    Keep the people at the actual forefront of your strategy. However, while trying to keep from getting "bloated" with salaried employee headcount, don't be afraid to make cautious investment in growth. Your people can/will get burned out if you leave them at their current staffing levels. I know I am having to fight it harder and harder.

    I have been working at Delta Air Lines full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Since day one I felt included and valued here at Delta. Having a line with only 6reserve days a month is so great and makes being junior so much more flexible. The people I work with are fun (for the most part) and get the job done. The company focuses on People first, something I am proud to be part of. There is also plenty of opportunity to do other jobs or "special assignments" within the company allowing me to expand my resume and personal growth!

    Cons

    Every company and especially every airline has its bad days. Summer flying can be tough and tiring but overall I really can't say much as far as cons for working for Delta.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to encourage and to show gratitude for your employees and as always- keep innovating.

    I worked at Delta Air Lines part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Delta offers its employees a highly competitive compensation package and flight benefits. Being a non-union airline sets them apart from the rest. I highly recommend this company.

    Cons

    Ready reserve employees get the short end of the stick when it comes to schedules and pay. They are required to do the exact same work as full time benefitted employees for a fraction of the wages.

    I worked at Delta Air Lines full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Best company ever. The A Days are great. Very professional. Safety is everything. If you want to travel the world, make money and meet new people, Delta is the perfect place.

    Cons

    I can't find any cons. If you have small kids, this is not for you. If you are starting a family that needs you , this is not a job for you. If you have no patience, this job is not for you.

    Advice to Management

    None
