    Pros

    Commitment to customers, employees and investors is reinforced daily by determined employees to provide the best experience to their passengers despite the challenges of unpredictability inherrent in this industry. I received ongoing training and support from management which allowed me to succeed in my position. I was continually given opportunities to advance. I would work at Delta again in a heart beat if I could find a position where I live currently. Delta employees are wonderful. Oh, and the benefits are fantastic.

    Cons

    I moved and my office was too far to commute or I would still be working for Delta.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep listening to your employees, Keep Climbing.

    Pros

    Delta has a great culture to develop and promote people from within the organization. Top notch sales training dept, great leadership and overall awesome flight benefits.

    Cons

    Compensation is on the low end. If you get steady promotions (say every 2-3 years) you always end up on the bottom end of the pay band for the position you are in.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow HR compensation and managers to pay employees you promote market value salaries vs the standard 5% bump or minimum of pay band.

    Pros

    The Leadership seems motivated to make Delta Air Lines the best airline out there. Working on the passenger cabin, we are emphasized on delivering the best product to our customers. The flight is also a plus, although some routes can be a little tricky to get to. Delta has a good culture and clear mission each year.

    Cons

    Delta does not sponsor international students, but if you are on OPT or CPT, do not hesitate to apply.

    Pros

    Great people, interesting industry, free flight benefits and opportunity to work a flex schedule

    Cons

    Low salary because they are a premiere employer in the area, mediocre health benefits with lots of out of pocket costs, and flight benefits are not what they use to be because there are fewer and fewer flights. You can barely use the flight benefits because you cant make the plane, especially with a family. Also, there is very little room for advancement

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Better health and flight benefits

    Pros

    Delta strives to take care of its employees in recent years with profit-sharing. Ambitious, focused talent. There are a lot of sharp minds at the corporate offices.

    Cons

    Extremely hard to implement change due to the complexity of even simple tasks. Extremely heavy political environment in financial departments. Promotions are hard to obtain and require a lot of patience. Flight benefits are increasingly hard to use. Even with a master's degree/CPA, the company's pay is lower than average (which is supposedly the trade-off for the flight benefits). Healthcare coverage is less than average.
