    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere, similar to what you would expect from an Internet company
    Very casual dress code, or lack there of.
    Located in Ogilvie Transportation Center.

    Cons

    Incompetent Senior Leadership
    Awful performance management and review process
    Incestuous relationship with Travelport hinders management from making the right decisions
    Compensation is below par, unless you are part of Senior Leadership

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop lining your own pockets with raises and bonuses and stock, and start focusing on retaining good talent. Start paying attention to the declining stock price, rather than telling the rest of us to ignore it.
