    Pros

    great group of people. family type atmosphere with colleagues who genuinely seem to care about one another. great benefits.

    Cons

    no money to do anything! most positions lead nowhere - stagnant.

    Advice to Management

    if you want to get different results, you have to do something different. you can do the same things and expect something new to happen. yours are not the only or the best ideas. consult with your staff.

    Pros

    Opportunities to travel - both domestic and international Flexible schedule Ability to develop new projects Office location is close to shopping, restaurants

    Cons

    Poor budget management by senior leadership Management's inability to eliminate or restructure projects that are not revenue-generating Lack of morale among staff Poor internal communication and sense of collaboration

    Advice to Management

    Re-examine the organizational structure to improve workflow and streamline processes. Research alternatives to staff or pay reductions. In moving forward with these measures, it has greatly damaged morale and lead to an exodus of talent.

    Pros

    Generally, there is flexibility for time off when needed Quiet workplace in good location Safe work environment in walkable community

    Cons

    Absent leadership- lacks direction Few opportunities for growth because there is no system of recognizing or rewarding achievement No formal employee review process No opportunity to compete for raises Frequent Pay cuts and layoffs Very high turnover

    Advice to Management

    The company has to be honest with its employees if morale is ever going to improve. Otherwise, employees will continue to have a big trust problem

    Pros

    The opportunity to effect change and make a difference in the organization. ASTA really has a great mission but needs to toot it's own horn more often to let travel agents, suppliers and the public know exactly what they do every day to promote the use of a travel agent and why the publice should use one.

    Cons

    Salaries are lower than most other companies in the travel industry. There are great employees who should be tapped for ideas on how to improve each of their respective departments so the association will experience more rapid growth.

    Advice to Management

    Allow more opportunity for employees to give feedback on how to manage budget and increase sales.
