    Pros

    Great work-life balance. The company seems to care about its employees.

    Cons

    No chance for advancement. Senior management doesn't have a strategy for growing the company. Senior management ignores major customers and then wonders why they lose them. Pay is poor. Company is deeply in debt. Senior management does not communicate with employees.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Find a strategy to grow the business. Take care of your customers.

    I have been working at Travelport

    Pros

    Nice people, flexible work life balance, B level salary. Perhaps someone with the correct soft skills and patience could redirect the mindset to a more agile less monolithic design. This task would center on the transfer of the knowledgebase from the offshore team, the elimination of proprietary solutions, for standard practices. Reasonably this person should expect at least a two for year effort. I just do not have that kind of patience, but a better man may. I would still recommend Travelport to the correct person.

    Cons

    Code base 100% offshore ownership and knowledge guarded. Extremely high barrier of entry to productivity for new developers. Very poor system documentation, and fragmented knowledge based. Suspect business model in contracting market. Antiquated design patterns and ideologies, linear and monolithic design, little to brighten up your resume. A limited capacity to contribute other then at the assembly line level. Very poor place for a can do type.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Task the knowledge owners to create a system design document; both high and low level; to enable ownership to transfer from the offshore team to the onshore team. A white board is not enough when culture and conflicting interests are center points. Embrace a can do attitude over the fear based attitude. Get 'outside' help on a SOA perspective. Empower onshore senior developers.
