Pros

The People are friendly and helpful. The Culture fosters hard work and fun. My dentist commented, "You have better dental benefits than I do!" The benefits are awesome! The freedom to grow and develop as an indiviual are great

Cons

As the Company is growing, it ix getting harder to hold on to the Culture. Keeping the Culture from changing a great deal will be a challenge.

Advice to Management

Don't let the Culture die or change for the worse!

    Pros

    The spirit of an underdog, lowering its head to struggle to improve itself. Its humbleness and willingness to constantly better itself.

    Cons

    The gradual disappearance of the spirit. People start thinking it's the largest domestic company, and making the environment more AA-like, if you know what I mean.

    Pros

    Benefits, 9% 401K match, Profitsharing, I have a good work-life balance.

    Cons

    Worked my butt off when I started here for the first 4 years; didn't receive any promotion or ingrade. Really horrible to see everyone else get promoted just for doing their job when I was going above and beyond. The culture is changing; they are hiring more people for "smarts". These newbies don't appreciate what culture means to SWA. Also, leadership isn't diversified; lots of caucasians up at the top (men and women). People don't even say hi to you in the hallways anymore...just unfriendly.

    Advice to Management

    Please recognize your hardest workers before you lose them to other companies. You are becoming a "legacy" and this is not good. You are losing what defined Southwest when it started.
