Pros

Decent pay could be more, great people to work with I have made life long friends, room for advancement, if you like to stay busy this is the place.

Cons

Crappy benefits, Crappy hours ( this is told to you before you are hired) Stressful. Crappy hours. Low pay and crappy hours :)

Advice to ManagementAdvice

take more of an active role in your employees and promote people who deserve to be promoted and not the favorites

    Pros

    There are some nice people that work at this company and some of the supervisors are good as well. I guess since you get switched around a lot you can't get to know them very well.

    Cons

    Horrible hours, they switched sched. every 3 months. Also if you ever called in because of an emergency/sick or had to leave early and still had time to use, they would dock it against your attendance. Worst policies I have ever worked under. There is not really room for advancement or raises here. You make the same wage if you stay no matter how many years. There are NO wage increases.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Perhaps if they actually cared about their employees they wouldn't loose so many. You are so concerned with the bottom line you could care less how your employees are treated.

    Pros

    Travelocity is one of the best places for work-life balance. They have very generous time-off benefits and the flexibility to work from home when necessary. In addition, there are some great people to work with and you can learn a lot. Also, if you are philanthropic, Travelocity does a lot with charity and sustainability.

    Cons

    Travelocity went from the #2 online travel agency 5 years ago to competing head-to-head for #3 today. Many of the Senior leadership have departed in the last two years, thus there are a lot of new leaders being brought in which causes a lot of churn and reorgs.

    Travelocity is headquartered in one of the lowest cost cities in the nation, yet it treats its HQ employees as if they are the most expensive workers in the country. In Dallas, there isn't enough parking for employees (even though we're at a private campus in a spacious suburb). Cubicles are not longer assigned to employees.

    Travelocity has become so "green" that it annoying -- they recently removed all the trash cans from the cubicles to encourage people to use several recycling bins centrally located. They won't build more parking because it isn't the "green" thing to do.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Bring more development work back to Dallas.
