I have been working at Southwest Airlines

Pros

The best reason bar none to work for this company is the people! One LUV is not just a feeling, everyone seems to embrace it. It's just one gigantic family. While the starting pay may not be the greatest, there is ample room to grow and the pay steps further along up the line are a nice incentive to put in the time.

Cons

As stated above, the starting rate for most entry level positions is rather low. Also, the sometimes hectic rotating schedule could be a turn off for those seeking a steady, regular hours type position. In my opinion, that is the nature of the industry, not necessarily a con against the company. YMMV

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Continue to lead the company with your unique blend of innovation, fun-loving attitude, and thr warrior spirit that got us this far.

    I have been working at Southwest Airlines

    Pros

    The culture is something that has to be experienced to know what we are really talking about. It's beyond fun.

    Cons

    The flights are always full so non revenue travel isn't as much of a benefit as it could have been.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    In the mid-level management level, progression isn't as fast as one would like to. But the movement opportunities are great. Just not upwards.
