Pros

Great technologies to work with. Good people on the team.

Cons

Management is taking the soul out of Southwest. They care only about the bottom line, and things like employee happiness and compensation are at an all time low. Contractors are treated like 2nd class citizens.

Advice to Management

Remember your culture. A deck party doesn't make a great job, but showing that you care about your employees every single day will bring the culture back. Do not alienate your workforce.
