    Company with strong history and culture currently faced with lots of change and challenges

    Manager (Current Employee)
    Dallas, TX

    I have been working at Southwest Airlines full-time for more than 8 years


    Pros: -Great benefits (medical, 401k match 9%, profit sharing, free standby travel), great people -challenging… Cons: -Middle management is very territorial and protects former practices that protect power instead of making change to improve the company, too many sacred cows -Vacation… Advice to Senior Management: -Reevaluate your Leaders to be sure you have the right people in the right places -Over communicate during integration issues -Hold people… No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company… More
