    I have been working at Southwest Airlines as a contractor

    Pros

    It sounds impressive
    Listed as one of the top companies in Dallas
    Met a few nice people

    Cons

    Technology is unorganized, does not share vision except with "the chosen few"
    Lets professional services companies run the show without concern or regard for their own employees
    Very strict with telecommuting policy and hours in office each day and each week
    No regard to work-life balance
    Does not assume employees are adults and can be treated as such
    Leaders are not trustworthy

    Doesn't Recommend
    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    They have profit sharing, and 401K. Employees own part of the company, and they get an update every quarter. The more one puts in, the more one gets back.

    Cons

    To some, the company is unionized. Union dues are deducted and they take care of employee, but they may sometimes be a little slow.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Upper management needs to spend some time with employees on a regular basis.
