Work life balance

At Delta, we believe having a good work life balance is important and we support that in a variety of ways. For example, most core office hours are 8am – 4:30pm Monday - Thursday and 8am – 4pm on Fridays.  We currently practice sustainability by participating in Green Fridays, where we close on Fridays throughout the summer and work four, ten hour days Monday – Thursday. So you can have a little more time with family and friends.
