    I worked at Southwest Airlines full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Casual dress code, good employee insurance, decent 401K, flexible work schedule, impressive to have on resume, good starter job for college grads.Frontline jobs (flight attendant, ground ops, reservations) offer more opportunity & consistency than most headquarters jobs. The "old-school Southwest" employees who are still there are the finest you'll find in any workforce.

    Cons

    Low salaries, heavy politics, weak leadership, inconsistent expectations, long hours for Dallas headquarters employees. Continuous downsizing of "weakest links" among workforce, including mandates to prune the dead wood. Random terminations; second chances no longer given. Minimal career growth opportunities. Almost half of workforce is now contract workers from India. Lots of focus on international growth & money; no longer focused on employee care that built the company, which is a shame. Actions do not back up what they purport to be their core values.

    Advice to Management

    Return to the SWA that the founders started in 1971. Bring back the genuine, caring culture...keep your good people & stop promoting incompetence.
