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

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and perks, empowered employees, opportunity for advancement, play hard and work hard, lots of training opportunities. Treat employees VERY well! Incredible culture. Truly a company that you can start and end your career with, especially if you are willing to relocate for promotions.

    Cons

    Lower pay for corporate positions than at other Fortune 500 companies

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Consider increasing salaries. It's disheartening to spend years working for a company you love and watch people who left the company come back and get higher salaries. The motivation is to leave SWA and come back to get any kind of measurable salary increase.
