Best Company I've ever worked for

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Dallas, TX

ProsI do have to say that most of what is written about Southwest is true. They do try to put their People first, are Safety conscience in everything they do, and don't take any decisions that impact their Employees or Customers lightly.

ConsThere are times, as I'm sure there are at most Company's, where upper management doesn't consult the subject matter experts directly before making a decision that is clearly not the best, and has to be undone later. They have gotten more into a mode of you have to provide they details to your boss, who has to convey it to their boss, who has to be able to answer all the tough questions for which they are not thoroughly prepared. That can become frustrating at times.

Advice to Senior ManagementBe sure to include the subject experts when making important decisions, and don't expect your direct reports to know it all. That's why it is a Team effort!

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
