Great Place to Work

Management (Current Employee)
Fenton, MO

I have been working at Maritz Travel full-time for more than 8 years

ProsGreat health benefits and vacation policy. Flexible schedule with work from home option and supportive upper management. Many employees have been working at Maritz for 10+ years and employee retention is high.

ConsUnfortunately, Maritz does not offer frequent raises and the earning potential is not increased year by year, even for a cost of living raise. However, the economy has been a factor and the company has offered other perks to try and make up for the lack of merit increases.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

Maritz is a great place to work and it is a "door opener" to other corporations if you're looking to move on.

Project Manager (Former Employee)
Saint Louis, MO

I worked at Maritz Travel

ProsGreat people, lasting friendships,nice work environment, wonderful benefits, ethical reputation

ConsLow pay, Constant Change in SOP, Fast Paced and Short Staffed, Lack Out Of The Box Thinking,
Lord of The Flies Mentality Amoung Co-Workers

Advice to Senior ManagementPeople would have taken a bullet for Bill Maritz (the former CEO/President of Maritz) despite the low pay scale Maritz is known for. Everyone wishes his successors could have lived up to his leadership abilities and personality traits.

Maritz is a great starting place to work

Anonymous Employee (Former Employee)
Saint Louis, MO

I worked at Maritz Travel

ProsMaritz has a very friendly atmosphere and everyone is willing to help you if you need anything. It is pretty much female dominant if that appeals to you. The hours are also very flexible and a lot of work can be done at home and on the road. A Project Manager for the travel department travels often but also forms great relationships with their clients.

ConsA downside of working at Maritz is that the ability to move in up the company is very limited. Also there is a lot of cattyness within the different departments and with management at times.

Advice to Senior ManagementI think the top management does a great job at communicating through emails and online web chats to the rest of the company.
