    Pros

    They have great cutting end technologies and some very good architects and lead developers. They also have some travel benefits.

    Cons

    Lack of reviews.
    No Job stability or feedback.
    Information hording.
    No Career path or training.
    Random layoffs
    Pay and Benefit cuts with lack of appreciation
    no Positive reinforcement, only negative i.e.working unpaid overtime then receiving a pay cut regardless.
    Lack of a Business process for releases.
    Unreasonable Deadlines seem they are not based on any sort of metrics but rather clients requests / demands.
    Poor benefits and lack of incentives.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to the team working for you. Don't hold meetings promising one thing then do the opposite. Offer training or some form of advancement within the company. Don't bother trying to motivate people with false hopes and unachievable promises. When people ask questions and specifics of these promises and there is no direct answer, they can see right through it. Require annual reviews instead of making people request them. Don't treat people as if they are disposable, people are what make up the company. Provide feedback to employees let the employees know where they need improvement. Create Reasonable deadlines that include some time for unplanned events or training new employees, you will reach them much more often. Don't horde information. If you want things to get done quickly, it helps when people know background information involving what they are working on. What is the reasoning behind making changes that will impact everyone?

    Pros

    The employees are generally upbeat, helpful and friendly. Fun-oriented team building activities occur regularly. If you want to learn the travel industry, or computer technology, or are a workaholic, you will get ample opportunity for fulfillment here. There are also some travel industry related benefits.

    Cons

    Performance reviews and professional development take a back seat to output. There is a stated shared-cost supervisor approved education reimbursement program, but your boss may balk at even reimbursing for needed books . The workload is also distinctly seasonal, so you will be much more comfortable if your personal schedule can be adapted to that. Employees come and go much more frequently than anywhere I have worked before.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    You need to expand beyond your knowledge of the travel industry and employ modern organizational management to create career opportunities and a more committed team.
