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

    Pros

    The flight benefits. The ready reserve program in particular is fairly flexible. Depending on how scheduling is done it allows you to have an additional full-time or part-time job to supplement your limited income. It's a fortune 500 company with many career opportunities if you are willing to relocate.

    Cons

    The reserve program has limitations on how many hours you are allowed to work per year. 1400 is the current maximum hours which poses an issue for many employees who need additional income to survive. At times you may have a challenge securing a schedule that allows you to maintain an additional job.

    Advice to Management

    Focus more on developing leadership and listening skills. Try to assess and limit amount of favoritism being implemented in flight scheduling and personal requests.
