I worked at Southwest Airlines full-time for less than a year

Pros

Can Travel for free which is a great benefit. The people that work there are also extremely kind and are great people to see every day. They hold events weekly which really help boost company morale and company drive. Having the ability to travel to a new city every weekend is as good as it sounds and I would recommend this company for anyone who likes to travel around.

Cons

It's in Dallas which is not a city I like so much. The congestion matched with the ridiculous heat make for a odd summer. Being from this east coast, I thought that I knew what traffic was. Dallas redefines that. However, the food there is quite good and there are 10000000 burger places to choose from.

    I worked at Southwest Airlines as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Great culture, great work-life balance, very festive, high number of after-work parties.

    Cons

    Cubicles are cramped, too many people in a small amount of space, awful parking lot

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep treating employees well. Consider treating contractors just as well. Get more office space and build a parking garage so employees don't have to get soaked walking into the building on rainy days.
