I worked at ASTA

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

Consno money to do anything! most positions lead nowhere - stagnant.

Advice to Senior Managementif 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.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

ASTA lacks strong leadership

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Alexandria, VA

I have been working at ASTA

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

ConsPoor 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 Senior ManagementRe-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.

Very limited growth opportunities

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)
Alexandria, VA

I have been working at ASTA

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

ConsAbsent 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 Senior ManagementThe 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

ASTA - Slow and steady wins the race.

Director Industry Relations / NACTA (Current Employee)
Alexandria, VA

I have been working at ASTA

ProsThe 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.

ConsSalaries 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 Senior ManagementAllow more opportunity for employees to give feedback on how to manage budget and increase sales.
