    Working for the "most advanced GDS", with technology from the 20th Century, and benefits/HR from the 19th Century.

    I have been working at Amadeus full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Head of the GDS game (according to market share), upper management are concerned with changing for the better, fair pay, plenty of change in the future for the better.

    Cons

    Tons of silos still exist, benefits are lackluster, no real travel discounts, barely contribute to insurance cost increases, raises consist of a yearly inflation adjustment, extremely slow to change or process anything, not concerned with it's line level employee's opinions, no training opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When you say you want to empower your line level employees, actually follow through, sit with them, ask their opinions, follow-up on what's blocking their success routes, push people out of silos.

    I worked at Amadeus full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Multicultural environment, and very flexible work environment. Some really great technology to support customers, and an impressive customer base.

    Benefits and pay were good, but not a lot of room for pay growth after you've joined.

    Cons

    Not much of a future for North America unless a competitor fails. Almost all of their recent market share growth has been due to external factors, not the company's efforts. The last big win was Southwest, and they promptly fired the guy who won that deal.

    Company moves at a snail's pace. Important decisions sometimes take months and years to make.

    Still using some of the oldest technology known to mankind. Blackberry and Lotus Notes were obsolete five years ago, but not at Amadeus. Expense reports require receipts taped on all sides to a sheet of paper, mailed to Miami, and manually reconciled for eventual approval and payment. Ever hear of scanning or an expense management system?

    Just about everyone hired into a senior position during the last three years or so came from a competitor, many bringing their former company's culture along for the ride.

    Company says it has a vision, but it's poorly communicated and executed once it gets to the director and senior manager level. Objectives for the year routinely wouldn't be set until March or April, and even then it was probably because it would hold up paying out the annual bonuses for managers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop buying talent from the competition when you have people internally that could do the same job if given the latitude.

    If I wanted to work at Sabre, I'd have gone to work for Sabre.
