I have been working at Southwest Airlines full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

The awesome culture and the LUV that is spread makes Southwest the best place to work in the country. Solid profits, no history of lay offs, and a solid vision makes it the best place to place your future. Awesome benefits and higher than average pay.

Cons

Busy, lots of sales, 365 day a year operation. Not really anything bad to say except be prepared to work and be prepared to buy in to the changes 150%. No room for flakiness and no room for absenteeism.

Advice to Management

Better communication

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

    Pros

    I do have to say that most of what is written about Southwest is true. They do try to put their People first, are Safety conscience in everything they do, and don't take any decisions that impact their Employees or Customers lightly.

    Cons

    There are times, as I'm sure there are at most Company's, where upper management doesn't consult the subject matter experts directly before making a decision that is clearly not the best, and has to be undone later. They have gotten more into a mode of you have to provide they details to your boss, who has to convey it to their boss, who has to be able to answer all the tough questions for which they are not thoroughly prepared. That can become frustrating at times.

    Advice to Management

    Be sure to include the subject experts when making important decisions, and don't expect your direct reports to know it all. That's why it is a Team effort!
