    I worked at Delta Air Lines full-time for more than 10 years

    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

    Dynamic office environment, excellent travel benefits. Great employees!

    Cons

    Director level and above are similar to politicians. Too political of an environment and no longer the "Delta Family" at least at the headquarters. A lot of talk about inclusion but take a look at how many Hispanic and African American Senior VPs or Exec VPs the company presently has and you will see the truth is far from the rhetoric. Great company but with too many business culture shifts. There seems to be an "Out with the Old, In with the New" policy every two years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This applies to the majority of the management: do not lose touch with the front line personnel. Get your hands dirty by stepping out of your offices and see what is taking place in the field, not in your long drawn out mgmt meetings. Sr Execs....if you say you are a company that believes in Diversity then why does the exec leadership no reflect more African Americans and Hispanics?

    I worked at Delta Air Lines full-time for less than a year

    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

    Flight benefits are awesome if you enjoy overseas. Swapping shifts with other employees.

    Cons

    Delta is one big fraternity. It's not what you know, but who you know. There are employees who've never been to college holding positions that require degrees. Employees with degrees can't move up.

    I have been working at Delta Air Lines as a contractor for more than a year

    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.
