    Pros

    I was with my previous employer for over 8 years so moving to Egencia was a big career decision for me. I haven't looked back since. My boss and teammates are always available to help me reach my goals. The company culture is healthy, fun and respectful to employees and their families. We work in a very competitive market and the company treats us with a work-life balance that is very difficult to find. The product we sell creates real value for our customers.

    Cons

    A higher sense of hierarchy than with my prior employer but senior leadership is accessible and make a point of communicating to all staff frequently.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great work. I've recommended Egencia to many friends and love selling the solution.

    Pros

    Excellent company culture, great benefits and an intelligent workforce.

    Cons

    Operates a bit too much like Microsoft. If you've worked at MS, you know what I'm talking about.

    Pros

    Great company...good work/life balance. Open contact with people at all levels.

    Cons

    Lots of climbers. Personal relationships with management help you get promoted. Employees are better workers than the managers.

    Pros

    Good pay and benefits, enjoyable location wonderful applications and tools. Many great employees and an overall strong team spirit.

    Cons

    There are some challenging issues when it comes to leadership. Too many people calling the shots or at least trying to. A bit all over the place. I found at times issues were identified but no action to follow.

    Advice to Management

    It's important to run a business efficiently but too much efficiency can cause suffocation. It's all about balance.

    Pros

    Good work / life ballance Pretty good insurance, 401k, vacation time, etc. Lots of travel benefits, including hotel discounts and travel stipend Broad and generally interesting products spanning pretty much all aspects of corporate travel Several international offices/teams Probably a good start straight out of college

    Cons

    Senior management largely inept and self-serving Poor communication within and across product teams Dated technology and little to no transparency around when improvements will actually ship Very few people below director level with any real skin in the game Eroding morale / opportunity Many dead-ends / cul–de–sacs

    Advice to Management

    Less managing up. Less managing message. More communication with rank and file employees. More honesty. More accountability.

    Pros

    Work from Home $400.00 per year fitness benefit and travel expense allowed of $250.00 per year which both are taxable. Good technology Health Benefits No airline discounts but there are some hotel discounts

    Cons

    They don't give a bonus to hourly employees! Unless you work overtime, then they gave you a Tango Card for some $ 3 weeks vacation is accrued, have to wait almost a year to use it, and each year thereafter! Must use vacation time accrued for any sick time used. Raises are between 1 and 2% Comparatively speaking the hourly wages are lower then average Salary employees get sick time and vacation time and a higher fitness allowance To move up in the company you have to move to Bellevue, WA

    Advice to Management

    Management gets the best benefits, your front line employees should share the same benefit package, since customers call us before they talk to you. Give your hourly employees the same bonus program as management instead of getting nothing!

    Egencia, part of Expedia, is a technology company, not a travel company.

    Pros

    Good benefits, compensation fair if you've been acquired, but much better if you're coming into the company new.

    Cons

    Tough corporate culture. Everyone's climbing over each other to get to the next rung on the ladder

    Advice to Management

    Stop trying to work people out and utilize the talents that you have

    Pros

    Assist customers regarding booking /cancel or reschedule their reservation, also quote different price on fares , resolve customers needs and problems, etc.

    Cons

    Their really no downside with Egencia, the only thing we really need to focus on is need good insurance benefits.
