    Pros

    Good advancementg opportunities, respected employer, and of course travel benefits. Proud to have worked there over 25 years, but grateful to have retired.

    Cons

    Salaries are more based on what they think they can get away with vs. market based. No longer offer much professional development, you're on your own for maintaining training, licenses, etc. Work life balance will depend on your department/boss.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    An awful lot of "entry level vice-presidents", how about promoting a few from within?

    Pros

    I miss working with Delta so much. I quit because I had a newborn at the time and was based in New York which was a doubletter commute. It was tough so I resigned and have regretted it since then. I loved my job! It was my dream job and I was lucky enough to get to do it. I had a little bit of seniority so I was able to make my work schedule a little more flexible. I met some wonderful people and saw some amazing places and learned a lot about other cultures. My benefits were great! I felt like management always had my back and although you rarely flew with the people you still felt like a big family. After all, you never know who your going to eating Thanksgiving dinner with!

    Cons

    Sometimes your day can start out looking like a piece of cake and turn into a long nightmare just to get to your layover city to find you have no hotel but it always works out in the end. Delta always takes care of you.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    It has been 7 years since I left and I honestly had no complaints with anything or anybody at Delta. I felt like they always anticipated our wants and needs. I wouldn't want to come back if I had any significant issues.

    I worked at Delta Air Lines

    Pros

    Complimentary travel for you and your immediate family and parents, decent wages. If you are lucky to work at one of the hubs, the main campus has great offerings such as a workout facility, farmers market, employee sales. Medical benefits are competitive. Overall it is a good place to work.

    Cons

    Much talk about work/life balance but working long hours is expected. Not much room for advancement unless you know the right people. Not much of a recognition system for management employees. The company is so fearful of unions they basically run things on a case by case basis and make many exceptions for certain front line groups
