    I have been working at Southwest Airlines

    Pros

    Hang in there-follow the rules and flight crews are paid well. Work hard-long days. Benefit package is excellent.

    Cons

    Company is growing and exhibits obvious growing pains and is not great at meeting change/although is continually says it understand changes. Good ideas offered by employees are often met with "we've always done it "this" way- resulting in frustration.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    LISTEN to front line employees---they see it all---do it all---and understand it all. Get it?

    I have been working at Southwest Airlines

    Pros

    Great environment, benefits, pay. Senior Management extremely competent & fair. The organizational tone set at the very top levels are top notch.

    Cons

    The company has grown large. Although senior management is top notch, some programs and tones done always trickle down to the line. A lot of challenges face the airline industry and Southwest seems to handle these challenges better than most others, but it's still a hard industry.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Customer service remains king. I know you know it, but I am less confident that everyone on the line still gets it. The problem of bad customer service spans the entire seniority spectrum and accros many departments.
