    I worked at Southwest Airlines

    Pros

    great travel benefits and health insurance as well as pay increases the longer you work there. overall a great environment if you cannot stand the nine to five thing. this allows you to be a more dynamic individual

    Cons

    terrible uniforms, employee review system untrustworthy. remember not to reveal too much to people you don't know. you tend to get close to people quickly but gossip spreads faster in aviation folks..word to the wise. also mind your p's and q's you never know who is watching

    I have been working at Southwest Airlines

    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.
