I have been working at Southwest Airlines full-time (less than a year)

Pros

* They take care of their employees, whether it be pay or just caring for the employee.

Cons

* Most management positions you have to deal with a Union. Constant redtape and bickering.
* Entry level employees don't understand what they have - a great chance for advancement, pay, etc.
* Health benefits can be a little pricey

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Go back to the drawing board with the Union - get things like discipline & FMLA/OJI Terms a little more in the clear. Too much gray area and the employees and Union take advantage of that.

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

    Pros

    Great benefits, job secruity, strong senior leadership.

    Cons

    No tuition benefits, Culture can be cheesy, work/life balance is disregarded.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please instill transparency into mid-level managers. Many of those promoted are strong performers and do not have leadership skills, education, and are narrow minded.
