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

    Pros

    Excellent benefits and perks, empowered employees, opportunity for advancement, play hard and work hard, lots of training opportunities. Treat employees VERY well! Incredible culture. Truly a company that you can start and end your career with, especially if you are willing to relocate for promotions.

    Cons

    Lower pay for corporate positions than at other Fortune 500 companies

    Advice to Management

    Consider increasing salaries. It's disheartening to spend years working for a company you love and watch people who left the company come back and get higher salaries. The motivation is to leave SWA and come back to get any kind of measurable salary increase.

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

    Pros

    Working in an environment where there is essentially no dress code and the ability to fly for free.

    Cons

    Leadership appears to have little focus or direction beyond keeping themselves employed and as a result many 'important' projects are abandoned at the eleventh hour after hundreds of man hours have already been invested. Instead of addressing employment issues directly they pile project after project onto unwanted employees to pressure them to leave or to build a case for termination.

    Advice to Management

    Focus Focus Focus. If you have a problem with an employee address it and move on. Your passive aggressive behavior is having a huge negative impact on morale.
