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

    Pros

    Flight benefits are the standout benefit for sure. Aside from that, the work in the IT department is project based, so very team oriented with steady, predictable work patterns. Positive environment with good management.

    Cons

    Very hard to stand out in such a large company. Promotions are few and very far between. Commute to the main office can be rough being located on the south side next to the airport

    I worked at Delta Air Lines full-time

    Pros

    Great culture with lots of positive people and strong leadership team. They are exceptionally good at developing people.

    Cons

    It is hard to move up the ranks if you are an "outsider". Most positions are filled with internal candidates so it is hard to break into a leadership role from the outside.

    Advice to Management

    Consider hiring external people with diverse experience to offer new insight and perspective. Don't always look internally for a candidate.

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

    Pros

    Delta is the best airline to work for. Generous compensation package, including profit sharing, especially once you've been there 12+ years. Ability to travel pretty much anywhere in the world--if there is an empty seat.

    Cons

    Expected to do more with less; the job is very physical and has a high risk of injuries. The only way to move up is through seniority, and there is no incentive for senior flight attendants to retire.

    Pros

    Great health and travel benefits, flexible schedule with ability to travel on days off. (the best part! haha), great coworkers and overall a positive vibe within the company. that profit sharing check! very nice.

    Cons

    attendance and sick calls. you will be written up regardless of having doctors notes.

    Advice to Management

    remember that we are all people, not just numbers! i had experiences with my manager that i wish would have been handled differently. not all management will treat flight attendants the same. some let them get away with more than others. please be more fair.
