A maverick in the industry - and still in (slow) growth mode.

Ultra-low cost mentality trickles down to employee benefits and rewards.

Advice to Management

Communicate with employees - it's not right to find out important information from news sources online.

    Pros

    Corporate offices are located in a nondescript office park in S. Broward, close to Florida Turnpike. Free flights but chances of getting time off or getting a spot on a flight for free during the holidays or peak times are slim to none and none left town, probably on Southwest.

    Cons

    Crocs and socks, shorts and hawaiian shirts on senior management every day at corporate offices? Old boy texas cliques among senior and middle management. Minimal perks, very limited value placed on employee's contributions.Extremely high customer dissatisfaction can be a downer especially added to perceived management indifference can be difficult for some.

    Advice to Management

    Is in-office touch football really an appropriate management team building activity at 3 pm?
    Love your employees more.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    Gain experience to work elsewhere. They offer you a job when you are unemployed. There are some great destinations with a lot of flying in Latin America. The mountain flying is challenging. All very desirable for your next employer.

    Cons

    Management goes out of their way to attack employess and disrupt their personal lives. Travel benefits of working for an airline are made next to impossible to use at Spirit Airlines. Work schedules are reversed within a 24 hour period so that you are up working all 24 hours of the day during a 2 day trip, you will be exhausted while you fly and for 3 days afterwards.

    Advice to Management

    It costs nothing to treat employees well and the payback is immense. Treat employees badly destroying their morale and it spills over to the customers who have choices and take their business elsewhere. It may take some time, but you will eventually not have a company left to work at either.
