I have been working at Southwest Airlines

Pros

Great place to work if you love travelling and working with travelers. Great benefits including health care and flight benefits. Employee focused.

Cons

Mandatory overtime at airport positions. Shift work. Low pay over all. Planes full so that cuts into flight benefits. 90 day probationary period seems excessive.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Look internally for talent. Consider ways to develop internal candidates. Reign in the Unions. Class it up. Keep AirTrans Business Class product.

    Pros

    Great health and travel benefits. They have a very casual dress code as well. There is the option to work 9 hour days and either have every friday afternoon off or every other friday off.

    Cons

    Working from home is not permitted on a regular basis. Getting recognized can be hard unless you are in the right spot. To start out they only give 2 weeks of vacation and are very inflexible on negotiating more to start.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please find ways to recognize individual contributors. An occasional bonus or perk would be appreciated for a job well done.
