    Stay away from the Charlotte office!

    Operations Supervisor (Former Employee) Charlotte, NC

    ProsGreat salary for industry, nice office, frequent visits from Canadian management

    ConsNepotism!! Management hires friends and family, where favorites are rampant. Regular scuffles with coworkers that date each other as well as management in domestic partnerships together. It is a pressure cooker environment that does not justify the higher salary.

    Advice to Senior ManagementIt all starts at the top. The only way to eradicate the horrible environment is to totally clean house and start over. The Charlotte office is a domino effect that will never stop until headquarters is involved. It's way past any repair.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Get out of the customer service industry

    Financial Analyst (Former Employee) New York, NY

    ProsBest benefits in the travel industry

    ConsI have never seen a company run as inept as this one. There is poor communication between upper management and no support. Their back office software is cumbersome and increases the workload. If they had a better system, they could get rid of half their departments which run reports just to support the software!

    They also run this company too lean because they're more concerned about extra $$ to the bottom line & to the stock holders instead of customer service. Their attitude is the customer needs to adjust to how this company operates instead of the company doing what they can to make the customer happy. I can't believe they're still in business with the way they treat their clients!

    Advice to Senior ManagementYou need to start listening to the client and have some sort of urgency when it comes to providing service to them.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Run WAY too lean.

    Business Manager (Current Employee) New York, NY

    ProsSome of the best benefits I have ever had.

    ConsManagement need to stop managing the company to the stock price and manage based on the needs of the clients. They are running way to lean. There are just not enough people to do their jobs correctly. Everyone is completely overwhelmed. The emphasis is build revenue, but they are not building the infrastructure to support the increase in revenue.

    Advice to Senior ManagementManage the needs of the clients and the stock pricess will follow.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Great job for somone who likes to work from home and does not need much money.

    Travel Consultant (Current Employee)

    ProsWorking from home, good benefits, travel discounts with IATA card. Good start up job for someone right out of school to gain experience.

    ConsVery law pay with not much potential growth, no commission, no opportunities for advancements, at least in this area where there is no office, everyone works from home

    Advice to Senior ManagementWould love to see opportunities for advancements so there is a reason to stay with this company. Would have more reasons to stay if the pay was higher as well. After all the company is saving tons of money on not having an office.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
