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

Pros

As a professional seeking growth: 1) challenging industry where the only constant is change 2) a multi-faceted business ranging from airport operations, marketing, revenue management... to operations control, in-flight service, etc. - a multitude of career opportunities 3) as a rule, very experienced and interesting people of all backgrounds/ ages 4) at the headquarters, opportunities for visibility and a feeling of a flat organization - ability to reach to and hear from the leadership 5) a company that turned itself around and continues to differentiate itself from the competition - CEO and the C-suite are steering the ship in the right direction!

As a human being who wants to have work-life balance: 1) Delta leaders have family values thus long hours at work are an exception not an expectation 2) ATL campus has a new gym, a car wash, health clinic / pharmacy, credit union branch, cafeterias 3) all employees receive profit sharing $$$ when co. makes a profit 4) Delta Perks - an employee site with tons of discounts 5) Free travel and nearly free for family + buddy passes - I can't stress this one enough - it's the jealousy of my friends :) - I am able to come to the airport and go...anywhere...no advance planning required - think of it as a big bonus to an average pay 6) online rewards tool to nominate a fellow employee for a job well done and for that employee to receive recognition and points exchanged for products/services, etc.

Cons

This is a big 80,000+ company - expect divisional miscommunications and some red tape. Not all managers are top talent, and it can take long for other leaders to realize and make organizational changes. It is also easy to feel like a needle in a haystack and question how much difference you really make - when this happens, it may be time to transition to another department - if a door is closed, there will always be a window.

Advice to Management

Communicate innovations from within to all employees (and reward them) - employee suggested improvements aren't celebrated enough; Contribute to the scholarship fund - there is not even a $5K scholarship - do you know how much college costs nowadays? :)

    Pros

    The hours are flexible. You can swap a lot of your days around. You travel for free and the company is very driven to provide a great work environment for its employees; great perks.

    Cons

    It can be a bit challenging moving up in the company. You must network a lot. You can feel a bit trapped in your position if you don't really work hard to move up


  2. "Excellent"
