Great flight benefits at major air line that strives to be and is the best. Lots of good, smart, well-intentioned people.
But…. worklife balance continued to grow imbalanced to a burnout state for too many. And frustratingly in recent years too many Leader promotions given to smart, but poor people managers who kiss the right butt, but leave a destructive path behind.4

First and foremost; flight benefits make Delta Air Lines a great place to work. The people I worked with were very nice. Good benefits and management works with you when you need time off.
Poor office facilities; old buildings. The performance review process needs to be revamped. The reviews really don't match the job; the reviews are generic. Direct management many times will have no experience doing your job.

I like the flight destination very much and the employee benefit like free tickets are really great! I also appreciate the work & life balance policy.
The salary is not so much satisfactory and sometimes the layover time between two flight is very short.

You also get to learn a lot about the airline industry. Flight benefits are great and Delta flies to more locations than many of its competitors.
Silos make inter-department communication extremely hard. Certain projects take very long to implement because other departments will almost always have other activities they prioritize more. The pay is fair but could be a little better.

Flight benefits are wonderful and the health care benefits are better than most I have seen or heard about
Delta does not care about employees. It is just about the numbers

Delta has great benefits with the 401k match at 9% and the free flight benefits. It pays fairly well for the Atlanta area.
Those of us who have stayed through the pandemic have seen a lot of new hires without a pay raise in 2 years, so for me, my morale is low.1

The flight benefits are amazing (though sometimes stressful) and the day to day work is ever changing.
Things get stressful and challenges that you must work through are often out of your control. The work schedule is based on seniority and can be really unfavorable if you are the last to get to choose-- plan to work odd hours until you can put in years of service and move up in the ranks of employees.

Base pay around 13.00 but for working at LAX and being LOD pay is 18.21/hour and we're receiving an increment in May. Flight benefits are great and get first class when it's available at no extra cost. Starting Jan all employees are eligible for 401K. Best of all are coworkers. Great profit sharing.
As ready reserve you can only work 1600 hours a year until you become a full time service. Some flight are weigh restricted so you don't fly even if there are empty seats on the flight. Can take long to become full time. No union, but that can also be a pro.

Ability to work remotely while there’s a pandemic.
Passive aggressive management. Too many managers, unsure what their roles are Very low earnings Flight benefits are great if you actually have time to travel and there’s no pandemic. Flight benefits are also great if your seniority is high. Less than 10 yrs w Delta you’re most likely waiting around for hours.

Great flight benefits (free standby travel on Delta and deeply discounted travel on other airlines) Nice to have other people your age as part of your program
Delta’s senior leaders do not care about the CSA program. It is NOT a leadership development program. They treat you as cheap labor to fill roles that other people at the company do not want (usually domestic pricing in revenue management). They call it a “rotational program,” but it is two jobs over three years, neither of which you get to choose. Others at Delta can switch jobs after just one year, but you are stuck for 18 months. The roles you get rarely involve strategic thinking, so most CSAs leave the company during their second rotation or shortly after. The mid-management leaders of the CSA program do not listen if you raise concerns, and the executive sponsor has a bad reputation within the company for being rude and callous. The pay offer and raises are under market and non-negotiable, but other recent college graduate analysts outside of the CSA program get paid more, get promoted faster, and get larger raises.8
