    Pros

    While I'm sure it differs from team to team, the one I'm involved with is wonderful! Everyone is really there to help each other out, but also push each other to do the best work possible. The atmosphere is positive, energetic and innovative.

    Cons

    There is constant change in the travel industry, which means constant change trying to keep up with new processes, rules, etc. This can be a little overwhelming for a new-hire, but you get used to going with the flow as you become more familiar with your position and the tools you work with.

    Pros

    - Use of best practices and latest technos make you feel like you are at the top of the game in software development.
    - Developers have the freedom of trying whatever they want technology wise as long as they learn something out of it.
    - Awesome benefits ! The best you can imagine. Really.
    - Each and every day you will learn something new and exciting provided you put in your best foot forward.
    - Almost no office politics, people are smart and upper management is very supportive.
    - Best. Culture. Ever.

    Cons

    - New employees should get at least a little amount of formal training to ramp them up for such an overwhelming amount of technologies used.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep on the good work and you will see skyrocketing results year after year because you are building your people well.

    Pros

    A flexible work place, that takes into consideration the needs of the employees. Fantastic benefits in the form of travel rebates, health benefits, relaxed and informal office culture, easy to access management and huge opportunities for the future.

    Cons

    It's an IT company, but it's still a massive company, so things can sometimes take a little time to solve. Can sometimes be hard to find the exact right person to help you. It's fast paced and dynamic, so don't expect a 9 to 5 job where you cruise from day to day with no changes. Targets are high, expectations are steep, and now the rewards also match the deliverables.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing - it's going great!
