Profit sharing, pay, benefits, great work environment
Work life balance can get tough if you don’t know how to work your schedule correctly.

Excellent benefits, generous pay and the people in the Eagan office are the best. I was fortunate to have an excellent work/life balance and I believe a lot of departments feel that way
Starting to outsource their IT work. Some IT departments are stressed due to a lot of workload and also on edge wondering how secure their jobs are.2

- flexibility (healthy work/life balance) - diverse culture - pay increases and high premium pay - great work environment
- if you’re a commuter flights can be competitive and scarce

Culture, moral, values, opportunities and teamwork
Work/life balance can be a challenge given the position and area of work

Flight benefits are an unbeatable benefit. Working in Atlanta is great. Southern hospitality, low cost of living and you're literally one (free) flight away from any city in the world. 50% of managers are great, care about work life balance, their employees and the company.
Typical corporate bureaucracy. Your work can be interesting and amazingly fulfilling unless you end up with a bad manager. Unfortunately some bad leaders do get promoted quickly who have no idea how to keep employees happy or what work life balance means. I was a part of a team where the entire team changed jobs/companies in 8 months of the managers tenure, who was then promoted to general manager. The good thing is it's a HUGE company. You have the opportunity to move around.3

I loved all the career opportunities that were available at Delta. I was able to leave inflight and work in marketing. Work/Life balance was important to me and I was able to have it all at Delta.
Commuting from a non base city was difficult at times but I was able to manage my flights.

Lots of flexibility and growth fast. Great co-workers. High pay rates and competitive in the industry. After 3 years, more flexibility and better schedule.
Poor leadership support. Work life balance before 2 years is a bit of a struggle due to lower seniority and may have to work weekends and holidays.
