    Former Employee - Technology Manager in Dallas, TX

    I worked at Southwest Airlines full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    - Casual Dress
    - Friendly environment, most people are really great people
    - Values driven company
    - Great product you can believe in
    - People have good-will in most situations
    - The Technology contributors know how to dig deep and get things done.

    Cons

    - Slow to make decisions
    - When decisions are made, there's a rush to action
    - Weak employees (including Leaders) linger, difficult to manage out
    - Challenging to develop from within
    - A lot of hurry up and wait
    - Technology department is positioned to overpromise consistently

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Technology Department Specific -Communicate more often with your teams, tie the work to the values/sustainability of the company to give the work more meaning, promote from within, see that delivery leaders, technical leaders and people leaders can be mutually exclusive ... be mindful that putting the right leader in the wrong role can cause major problems.
