I have been working at Grand Circle full-time (less than an year)

Pros

Compensation, benefits, location, etc.

Staff is for the most part, really awesome & always give ample feedback on how to improve.
LOTS of opportunities for growth should you want to grow within the company.

Cons

Some people may not share the same "values" the company holds so high. I, personally, LOVE that aspect, but it's not for everyone & has been a point of contention for some, from what I've seen.

Some staff are really bad at following up on requests/commitments. It's no different than anywhere else, but accountability is inconsistent with some associates.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

LISTEN to your staff and offer more opportunities for them to make suggestions. Even the little ones can make a big impact.

    Pros

    So many great, hardworking people work for Grand Circle and Overseas Adventure Travel. Some of the best and most caring and dedicated people I have ever met - especially in their worldwide offices.

    Cons

    It's too bad that the executive management team doesn't practice what it preaches when it comes to values. Risk-taking and Open and Courageous Communication are supposedly valued, but they if they don't like your opinion - you are out the door faster than you can say "Associates are #1"

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop moving so fast that you never have time to listen to what is really going on. Every single decision should not only be based on Mr. Lewis' mood that day.
