    I worked at BudgetTravel full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    A very dedicated group of people working to create and monetize quality content on a subject for which they all share a passion. Casual work environment. Fun atmosphere. A True Esprit de Corps reigns.

    Cons

    Multiple changes in ownership have decimated staff size and ability to maintain volume and quality of content. Lack of clear direction for the future. Too much uncertainty.

    A company of passionate people with a fantastic product and, unfortunately, ineffective leadership

    Pros

    The passionate and talented creatives at this company produce a high-quality product that the end-user loves. The sales people who represent the company are dedicated and professional. And the support staff are tireless in their efforts.

    Cons

    High turnover rate, negative work environment, inadequate compensation and benefits, ineffective leadership

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    My advice is to the owners who need to invest time and money to put effective leaders -- not managers -- who will be poised to utilize the skills and talents of the dedicated team who are poised to rally.

    I have been working at BudgetTravel

    Pros

    The company is filled with friendly, smart people who work hard to put out quality products online and in print. The travel products are great, serving audiences that are not currently being served.

    Cons

    Overall the management is to blame for the demise of this great travel product. Poor planning and a shortage of cash flow make handling vendors difficult.
