I have been working at Southwest Airlines full-time (more than 10 years)Pros
Fun LUV-ing attitude, be yourself, flexibilty, excellent compensation both in pay and retirement. Ability to move about the company (country). Growth options in many departments and fields from within. Excellent flight & travel benefits. HDQ host several career and developmental classes in Dallas. Could not imagine leaving this company. If you are very focused, determined and diligent, you can retire from here very well.Cons
When in 'Agent positions' (Union positions), incentives for excellent work are lacking as normal for union positions. Granted, most all positions are very well compensated, but incentive to strive to be the best is low.
Some of the people in Mid-level leadership could work on rewarding people on doing a great job instead of over analyzing every detail when something is incomplete. Mind you, that is not everyone.
Everyone needs to step it up on all levels to aknowledge when people go above and beyond like so many do.
Honestly, there isn't really any CONs in my book.Advice to ManagementAdvice
Please continue to reward and encourage people to do their best. Trust your people (all levels).
I highly suggest offering a basic financial class such as Dave Ramsey's Financial Peace. I truly believe if/when people took control of their financial life, they would use our benefits to the fullest and truly appreciate what we have here.RecommendsPositive OutlookApproves of CEO
