    Generally good, but sometimes frustrating

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsLindblad produces an A+++ product. It is very easy to take pride in the customer experience.

    If you can take advantage of the travel benefits, they are very good.

    ConsThere are persistent communication problems throughout the company that just don't seem to getting better.

    Advice to Senior ManagementStop taking your extremely dedicated workforce for granted. Many employees are 'lifers', and that is rare these days.

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

    This place is not what it seems...

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)

    ProsGreat co-workers, nice roof-top deck, and good vacation policy, but that's irrelevant since they never let you take any time off. If they do, they will make you change your plans at the last minute. Everyone acts happy on the surface, but you have to walk on egg-shells and keep your mouth shut or risk upsetting the one with the "God Complex".

    ConsNo annual reviews or a process for professional development.
    Beware of this company. They can't keep certain positions filled. If you are interviewing for a job here, make sure you meet with everyone you will be reporting in to, and question them as to why this position is open and how many times it has been filled in the past 5 years.

    Advice to Senior ManagementPut in a system of "checks and balances". One person should not be allowed to be a dictator. Encourage your employees to express their opinions and creative ideas.

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