Great first job - little room for growth

Tour Consultant (Former Employee)
Cambridge, MA

ProsFun company, younger staff, beautiful office, good/affordable health benefits & opportunity to travel. While I was there we had every other Friday off - huge plus. A great first job for someone right out of college & a great place to make new friends!

ConsHigh expectations for little pay. Felt like just a number - not a lot of opportunity for growth. Salary wasn't high enough to make living in the Boston area attainable.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
