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

Pros

Casual, friendly environment, fun people, and goot times

Cons

Less than cohesive process or technical environment. Yet much, much, better than most companies.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Efficiency and reliability are king. But you already knew that...

    I have been working at Southwest Airlines full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Really friendly culture. Many employees still understand the fundamentals of costumer and employee relations.

    Cons

    Inconsistent work rules, poor use of employee resources department, too many cooks in the kitchen when it comes to corporate managment positions. Growing too fast to maintain the culture that was instilled by the great Herb Kelleher.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop worrying about wall street and get back to fundamentals. This company did not make it forty years on stock quotes.

    I worked at Southwest Airlines as an intern (less than a year)

    Pros

    The working atmosphere here is unlike any other. It really is like a family with plenty of time for fun and productive work!

    Cons

    Pay can be not that great sometimes--something has to make up for all of the other perks that you get.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep costs low, but don't sacrifice the culture of this place!
