    Delta is a great place to work

    Finance Analyst (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA (US)

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

    ConsLow 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 Senior ManagementBetter health and flight benefits

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    An "ok" company

    Senior Analyst, Revenue Management (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA (US)

    Pros- Travel privileges - first class upgrades at no cost when available
    - very relaxed working environment on a nice campus setting
    - standard 45 - 50 hr workweek

    Cons- upward mobility is very limited
    - salaries are very low for the comparable job. even within the airline industry, DAL is low paying.

    Advice to Senior ManagementWhile it is always a good idea to focus on your frontline employees, please do not forget that you have a skilled workforce in HQ.

    I've been an employee for 20 years.

    Frontline Leader (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA (US)

    ProsIt's a financial strong company with a great leadership team that expresses forward thinking and promotional movement from within the company. If you are motivated to transfer, you're opportunities are endless. The airline industry can be incredibly fickle, however Delta has managed to stand out among the competition. I'm so proud to work for Delta.

    ConsLocal management often dictates the attitudes amongst the employees. The merger is still not a smooth process that most leaders choose to ignore. Not everyone is on board with Delta policies and expectations and that can bring entire team down.
