    No need to be professional.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) Parsippany, NJ

    ProsSome of the people were great. In some cases would go above and beyond to help other departments out. The building was nice and the cafeteria was a nice benefit to have.

    ConsCutthroat, back stabbing atmosphere pitted people against each other to get ahead. Tried to work with HR to ensure that people were being treated fairly and that backfired on me in the end. No need to have actual information, decisions were based on your popularity and if you were not in the in crowd, that was it.

    Advice to Senior ManagementHire people with more emotional maturity to lead the organization. There were too many layers of management and far too many meetings.

    Okay first job, but move on quick

    Technical Analyst (Former Employee) Parsippany, NJ

    ProsSomething to put on a resume. It's a good first job, but most people leave after one or two years. Turnover is high in certain departments. If you're liked (personally) or you're a minority, prepare to stay.

    ConsThere is limited growth opportunity. The work is not challenging. Doing above and beyond what's required is neither encouraged nor, sometimes, even recognized.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAllow people to grow into their role. Challenge them with projects. Make them learn new things and pay them well.

    NOb bad but tough

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Parsippany, NJ

    Prosgreat pay and excellent stock options
    good benefits and perks
    good people to work with; very helpful and generally a happy group

    ConsVery competitive and very Wall Street focused, hard to get little things done, generally big iedas are implemented faster and the rewards are for big bottomline hits

    Advice to Senior ManagementTake a look at the details not just the big picture, the travel and hospitality business is taking care of little things not just big wins

    Good but could be better

    Programmer Analyst (Former Employee) Columbus, OH

    ProsFlexible work schedule, hard work of the employess are generally appreciated though it doesn't translate into promotions. Good bonus package.

    ConsIts very hard to get promoted from within and company fails to get rid of people that fail to carry their weight and are a drag on the company.

    Advice to Senior ManagementClearing the company of dead weights routinely would help keep the employees that do work motivated and improve oppurtunities for career growth.

    Good for starting, bad for long term

    Travel Agent (Former Employee)

    ProsFree Sabre Training
    Good Compensation
    Free Travel benefits
    Relaxed atmostsphere and dress code
    Benefits start day one
    Vendor kickbacks

    ConsFrequent closings and downsizing
    Quanity sales not quality sales are expected
    Bonuses can be retained easily
    Promotion to other departments based on who you know not what you know

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry and pay attention to employees that are good, solid contributors, not just close friends for promotions. Management should not be so involved in its employees social life since its kills any air of professionalism.

    not a happy place

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsCendant Travel has powerful and well known brands and many complementary business lines. They should have a holistic view of the consumer from demand to supply.

    Consmany layoffs (RIFs), too much powerpoint bingo rathern than real work. No real synergy between the business groups. Gigantic focus on stock price.

    Advice to Senior ManagementNot sure that all of this is management's issue. Problems arose with debt raise, etc. Best advice - stick to your knitting and continue to execute.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
