I have been working at Southwest Airlines as a contractor (more than an year)

Pros

The position was great and allowed for "out of the box" thinking. Most people were easy to work with and most of the Leadership team was easy to work for.

Cons

There weren't very many "cons" to speak of.

    I worked at Southwest Airlines as a contractor (more than an 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.
