What employees say: “It’s cliche, but it really does feel like a family at Southwest. We are a proud of our (now not so) little airline and what we stand for. I have had fantastic leaders who care about me as a person – not just my work. Our senior most leaders think of employees first with every decision they make. I feel fortunate every day to work for this company.”
