No opinion of CEO

I worked at Southwest Airlines as a contractor (More than a year)

Pros

Accomodating - Reasonably caters to the needs of workers.
Family oriented - time off given to care for children. Family days on special holidays.
Friendly work environment. Team outings, lunch, happy hours.
Opportunity to work on different teams

Cons

Benefits are excellent, salary a little sub-par
Limited work from home opportunity.
Location is at Love Field, near downtown Dallas, so commuting from the suburbs is a drain.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

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

    Pros

    Great health benefits, decent pay and there is the ability to trade shifts pretty easily.

    Cons

    If you are a minority and/or gay, the Burbank station manager and sups have your back because they are in your clique. Otherwise beware, you will be held to higher standards and disciplined way more than the clique.

    Advice to Management

    Stop being paralyzed by political correctness and participating in the rampant reverse discrimination environment that has been going on for the last 10 years in Burbank.
