    One of the best companies I have ever worked for in my life.

    Customer Service Representative (Former Employee) Atlanta, GA (US)

    ProsCommitment 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.

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

    Advice to Senior ManagementKeep listening to your employees, Keep Climbing.

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

    The Airline to Work With

    Cabin Ops Support Engineer (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA (US)

    ProsThe 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.

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

    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

    Mixed Reviews

    Analyst (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA (US)

    ProsDelta 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.

    ConsExtremely 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.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Simply being here daily has been a great learning experience however the Co-op program is not organized or exciting.

    Industrial Engineering Co-Op (Current Employee) Atlanta, GA (US)

    ProsGreat benefits and a lot of exposure to clients, suppliers and upper management in TechOps.

    ConsSlow paced environment and roles are very specific and sometimes redundant.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
