    Company values and vision is not a marketing scheme

    It depends which location you work at and what type of co worker you get to work with.

    I worked at STA Travel full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Travel benefits
    International perspective
    Cool people to work with (again, depends on which location you're at)
    Overseas training or meeting if you are at manager level

    Cons

    Some seniors in the office are hard to work while some of them lack leadership to lead the team. Perhaps more training on people skills are needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management people are pretty much cool and you can learn a lot from them, though you need more time to look at what's going on in a smaller office location.

    Recommends
    Positive Outlook
    Approves of CEO
