We may think of large companies as being less personal to work for. When corporate headquarters are in another state, or you never meet the people in charge of making policy, you may feel like just another gear in the machine.

2. Southwest Airlines
Working as a stewardess looks like thankless work. On their feet, they may act like waitresses but are trained to keep people safe at extremely high altitudes, and not all passengers are pleasant about being told they can’t stash five suitcases in the overhead.
Hello Giggles reports that the perks and benefits of working for SouthWest Airlines include much more than just free airfare for employees. Actually, SouthWest offers free airfare for employees, spouses, eligible dependent children, and parents. They have also made deals with other companies to discount the cost of hotels, car rentals, and even theme parks for their staff.
SouthWest offers fun perks such as chili cook-offs and themed parties, including a big Halloween event every year.

They help employees achieve work-life balance by offering onsite childcare and adoption assistance. They offer at least three different plans to help employees save for retirement, including a 401(k) with an employer match.
And don’t forget the complimentary theme park admissions with additional discounts. If you want to work for Disney, you are going to enjoy those perks!
