Very project focused

Senior Manager (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX

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

ConsIn 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 Senior ManagementSouthwest 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...

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

    Absolutely the best experience an intern could ask for

    Ground Operations Emergency Response (Former Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    I worked at Southwest Airlines as an intern for less than a year


    Pros: Great environment, Wonderful facilities. Best coworkers anyone could ask for. Extremely diverse… Cons: Slow to move ideas through red tape.
