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

    Pros

    Reasonably safe work environment on aircraft. Generally great employees, despite semi-dedicated new-hires. 4% match 401k. Flexibility that increases with seniority.

    Cons

    Despite CEO's public emphasis on "values" and supposed respect for "the best professionals in the airline industry", worker pay remains stagnant, any pay increases offset by such tactics as lessening of profit sharing percentages. And despite CEO Anderson's rhetoric, flight attendants for the world's largest airline receive an industry standard low for pay scales while Anderson simultaneously accepts, this year, a 42% pay raise. If you don't take care of your employees, you end up getting what you pay for. Flight benefits are moot when there are no seats on over-utilized aircraft.

    Advice to Management

    Stop penny pinching on aircraft repairs and flight attendant salaries. If, as you state publicly, you have the most professional work force in the airline industry, pay them as such. Further, if your going to adopt a values-based corporate philosophy, consider the optics of your "world class employees" industry-low pay as compared to the CEO' s already outsized salary being augmented by a gaudy 42% pay raise. Some "values."
