I worked at Southwest Airlines full-time (more than 10 years)

Pros

SWA has a great company culture that affords all employees an opportunity to move into any department that they have the skill set to go into. The benefits are better than most other companies and they really take care of their employees.

Cons

Salary or total compensation is not inline with other companies for similar skill sets for employees not in a union. The heavily unionized company cateres to these work groups too often.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management should be willing to stand up to the unions and stop treating them differently than the rest of the company's employees.

    I have been working at Southwest Airlines full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Stability, co-workers, work/life balance, work hard but play hard mentality, travel, great insurance

    Cons

    Some departments or groups do not align to corporate values. Small concern that profit is becoming more important than customer service. Perks are great but salaries are lower than other industries and airlines, at least in non-union roles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stay true to SWA foundational values. Vet external leaders better; some seem to only pay lipservice to our values.
