I have been working at ASTA

Pros

The 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.

Cons

Salaries 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 ManagementAdvice

Allow more opportunity for employees to give feedback on how to manage budget and increase sales.

    Pros

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

    Cons

    no money to do anything! most positions lead nowhere - stagnant.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    if 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.
