    I have been working at Southwest Airlines full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Once into Southwest it is hard to get fired unless you did something stupid. Lots of parties and every party has lots and lots of alcohol.Lots of smart talents in the company but not utilized.

    Cons

    Technology has been going into transformation for the last 7 years. Technology Managers keep changing and causing lots of frustrations for the customers. People drink a lot and its called culture. I think the company wastes too much money on alcohols and leaders take advantage of this.people are not held accountable as it is considered against SWA culture, i think Colleen's purpose of culture has been misinterpreted by leaders who cant hold people accountable.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop worrying so much about numbers and worry more about employee morale. If your employees are happy, then they will be determined to want to do their job to the best of their abilities. Therefore, the numbers will improve,
