So have a job offer from delta paying 80k and a job offer at eTrade offering around 110k. I like the position at delta much more, but I like the salary at eTrade. Any suggestions ?

As a former airline employee pre-MBA, I can tell you D1 is deadwrong. There is no amount of passion that can make working at an airline as lucrative as most other industries. I've been an aviation nut all my life, but at the end of the day, a senior manager in charge of a team of 8 should be making more than a first year consulting analyst.

@P2, sure what do you want to know? I ran day-to-day ops for our international routes/fleet, team of 8 working 24 hour shifts and acted as 24/7 backup in case of escalation (lots of middle of the night calls) overall very fun and interesting work, but the pay just wasn't there... so I left to b-school and now I make double pre-bonus (a good bonus before was 2k)

If you're at Delta HQ I would go for Atlanta (cheaper CoL, travel, developing city). But if it's eTrade NYC that could be cool too if you've never lived there. Also what are the teams like, will this build on other career oppos...all that stuff is a big factor. Either way, great job!! 👍🏼

I want to say go with what you're interested in, but I'm not sure what interesting cyber-related work you'd be exposed to at an airline. eTrade on the other hand, could set you up well to see more interesting work (by compliance standards) seeing as how they're such a high volume broker dealer.

What are the roles?

Delta - cyber , eTrade - IT complaints type work.

Compliance *

Are both in the same location? Or is one in a higher COL city than the other? Also, is cyber something you want to do long term?

@PWC1 , both areas are similar in COL and I definitely want to be in cyber long term. @Consultant1, the delta position is in Atlanta and the eTrade is in a city outside of Atlanta.

Alpharetta?
