Pros: casual dress (shorts & t-shirts), great people to work with, free flights for life (while you're there or if you retire), 401k matching (dollar per dollar up to 9%)
Cons: healthcare benefits continue to rise in cost and decline in service everywhere, it''s a little faster at southwest, promotions and financial growth are nearly stagnant
There are always new challenges that arise in your work with Southwest Airlines. The company encourages working hard and playing hard. Unfortunately, without changing area of expertise, there are very little opportunities for career growth. Overall, Southwest is a good company with great intentions.
