    ProsGreat travel benefits, employee reviews consistent.

    ConsBrands and different companies under main holding company tended to be convoluted.

    Luxury Travel, but employees are not respected

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
    El Segundo, CA

    ProsYou're constantly learning about new destinations for travel. Once in a while you can take advantage of a good travel deal.

    ConsSenior management does not support or provide enough resources to allow employees to do a great job. Staff is overloaded and overworked, resulting in low morale.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your regular employees better; they are the ones making memorable trips happen for employees. Treat employees with respect and compensate them appropriately.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Creatively crushing

    Designer (Former Employee)

    ProsThere seems to be some good recruitment where talented individuals are hired who bring knowledge, big ideas and are always a good laugh. Industry as a whole is interesting and there's a lot of potential to experiment with new ideas and technology.

    ConsOld school view of how a company should run. Minimal acceptance for anything new.
    Too many 'no' people.
    People always want something new and exciting yet seem terrified of doing anything different when it comes down to it. "Doing the same thing over and over yet expecting different results".
    Most ideas are trampled on.
    Always 'something' better on the horizon to appease concerns but concerns are never quite addressed.
    Little development, education or training. Minimal investment in staff.
    High turn-over of staff - Quickly lose those talented individuals.
    Politics get in the way of everything, you just can't get anything done without every level having their input (sometimes felt like people would say something for the sake of it).
    Blame culture.
    Little time given to do a good job before something else needs to be done yesterday.
    A very top heavy structure with little support for those towards the bottom.
    Seems to be lots of talk but no action. Resulting in another meeting.
    Quite often low moral.
    Ideas/Strategy seems to change as it comes down the chain of command which is confusing. Being told one thing my the most senior staff but direct management are relaying something different - occasionally the opposite?!

    Advice to Senior ManagementTrust those talented people you have hired to do their specialist job. Things might actually pick up if you allow people to exercise the ideas they have from time to time. Respect the fact that new ideas might fail but if something is learnt then it has been a success - allow the staff to know its ok to fail. Visibility of a sound strategy would be helpful. Invest in your staff. Invest in the culture.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Overworked, underpaid and thoroughly undervalued.

    Overseas Holiday Advisor (Former Employee)

    ProsGetting to see a new part of the world, and experiencing things you otherwise would never get to.

    ConsWaking up at 7am, and getting to bed again at 1am the following morning. Employees are often too tired to function properly! No assistance at all given with team problems raised during the season. Liquidation process is draining and pointless. Pay is awful.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRealise that you can't pay your employees 400 a month and expect them to work every hour God sends!
