ATLANTA, Dec. 9, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Employees have spoken: Delta is one of Glassdoor's Best Places to Work in 2016.
Glassdoor, an online jobs and career marketplace, awards companies based solely on the feedback of employees who volunteer their opinions about their workplace.

This positive feedback from our people – the very best and most professional in the business – really highlights that commitment."
Launched in 2008, Glassdoor combines free and anonymous reviews, ratings and salary content with job listings to help job seekers find the best jobs and address critical questions that come up during the job search, application and interview phases of employment.
