I have been working at Southwest Airlines

Pros

Great company culture, very nice pay and benefits package, travel, ability to affect change within the workplace, fun and playfulness are recommended!

Cons

As the company grows it is hard to maintain the close family feel and highly desirable fun luving culture but the company is trying hard!

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Hats off to management for keeping SWA the only profitable US based airline in a very turbulent and trying industry for 40plus years-- and they're still going strong!!

    Pros

    The leadership generally has great communication with the employees, however, it seems after the merger with AirTran, leadership has lost vision and communication with the employees

    Cons

    Leadership recently has lost their vision for their employees. Senior leadership is most focused on the merger and getting into details of day to day operations when they should be leading a company.

    Additionally, management is most focused on getting returns on investments and marginal profit rather than total net profit.
