I have been working at Southwest Airlines full-time (more than 5 years)

Pros

Everything you hear about Southwest is true. The people are VERY friendly, the attitudes are amazing and the benefits are better than most companies.

Cons

In the Technology department there is a true lack of leadership. Everything is project focused with no vision for actually building software products that last. Teams are torn down and then rebuilt for each project.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Southwest Technology needs to hire real leaders that understand team building, process and vision. Stop asking your leaders to act like project managers and have your leaders lead...

    Pros

    The flexibility, stability and people rock!

    Cons

    Airtran seniority integration was a huge let-down, commuting is very stressful and the trust of senior management is at a low.

    I worked at Southwest Airlines as an intern (less than an year)

    Pros

    Great environment, Wonderful facilities. Best coworkers anyone could ask for. Extremely diverse crowd, one of every kind. Amazing resources for self education. Great documentation overall.

    Cons

    Slow to move ideas through red tape. Felt like advancement was more based upon waiting a certain amouont of time rather than merit / performance.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You have some of the best employees that still have more to give than just ideas. Look to tap (not over tax) into and get the most from your employees and ALL of their talents.
