    I worked at STA Travel

    Pros

    * Good travel benefits for top performers
    * Ability to help people plan amazing travel adventures.
    * Young environment; generally fun, social work scene

    Cons

    * Limited capabilities at a management level, particularly for branch managers.
    * Basically no training beyond the initial 2 week introductory period
    * Ridiculously low base salary, particularly for the urban branch offices (low 20s/year). Yeah, you can get a decent amount of money in commissions, but there's a lot of outside factors that will impact your ability to sell (hello, economy?)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    When I left, the feeling in the branches was that people are working for a sinking company. The products sold weren't t as good as they used to be. Customers can easily go direct. The direction of the company was unclear, and certainly not communicated to the team members.

    Invest in some management talent to develop a clear strategy for the company. Invest in people.
