    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.

    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.
