    Great people on the business side but IT is very "average"

    I worked at Southwest Airlines full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    great business and leadership from Gary Kelly and the business people of SWA. They really do walk the walk. The people working at the airports, flight and maintenance are TOP notch and will go out of their way to make SWA successful every time!

    Cons

    Unfortunately once you transition to IT..the culture ends and your dealing with all the same issues as any IT service company. Nothing "special" and little to no opportunity to grow outside your job title.

    Advice to Management

    end the legacy approach to management of you people and technology. Some of this is underway with the new CIO..so there is hope!

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

    Pros

    I LOVE the people we come into contact every day with and love being part of a wonderful airline, the top in the industry! The flight benefits are the best too.

    Cons

    As employee friendly as SWA says they are, their 6 month probationary period has no wiggle room, unless you are friends with management. They don't care if a new employee is in a car accident, spouse has a heart attack, child in the hospital, if you aren't at work or late it is counted against you and you can lose your job no matter how great of an employee you were. We saw this happen at our station a couple of years ago. Very sad.

    Advice to Management

    Work-life balance should be a higher priority. People shouldn't be in a true emergency and have to be worried about losing their job or having points against them.
