    Pros

    Flight benefits! Great culture that celebrates its people.

    Cons

    Middle management (in an attempt to please upper management as the pressure is on to outperform already high performance) can be very political and cut throat. Organization can be very siloed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Great Senior Leadership team. Middle management (in an attempt to please upper management as the pressure is on to outperform already high performance) can be very political and cut throat.

    Pros

    I personally worked on a great team and the flight benefits were amazing.

    Cons

    Its a bit bureaucratic and slow to change anything. They have systematic processes in place that use very old technology. There isn't much time to use flight benefits and they aren't that fun unless your really into tourism or you have friends in far away places.

    I worked at Delta Air Lines full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    travel, health insurance, the computer is forcing me to list 20 words but 3 is all I can offer.

    Cons

    salaries are lower than other sectors, travel benefits is supposed to be your incentive but today many including DL have so many code share operators and are adding all the time that non reving is becoming more difficult and expensive as you do pay the taxes. I still get buddy passes from my friends but yesterdays flight to CA had 55 active staff members trying to get on a flight I paid 4.10 for. The staff members paid 250 for its not free................ Time off is limited so you cannot enjoy the travel, most people I worked with never used it to its full advantage as they couldn't really afford it. Neither could I when I was the employee. Now I travel more which is bizarre since I left them for months at at time. This was never possible with Delta.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I was promoted from airport to flight control where the money was better but as a people person I was much more valuable to the company dealing with people where I was excellent at my job and generated more thank you airport than any other staff member on record during that time in that airport. The company however does not see this and financially I couldn't afford to return to the airport but I was dying in a department in the OCC. I chose to leave. I miss the airlines daily however I make double my salary now and fly more for pleasure world wide something I couldn't do while working for DL. It makes no sense.
