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

    Pros

    Though the company has grown tremendously, they make a big effort to maintain the company culture. They have a University for People that offers great leadership classes and compensation seems on par with other large corporations. The benefits are great!!

    Cons

    The Technology department is always going through tremendous change as the company grows. The employees are under constant stress trying to keep up with all the projects.

    Advice to Management

    It's disappointing how many jobs have been outsourced to India.

    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!
