    I worked at Navitaire full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Really good architecture and fun people to work with. Management is a bit distant but the company is doing well so I assume they are making the right decisions.

    Cons

    Because of the way they do releases you might be sitting around for a while waiting for QA to finish with nothing to do.

    I don't work in the Phillipines office.

    Pros

    The company is full of positive attitudes and knowledge. Everyone is willing to contribute to get a project completed. Ability to work from home and extremely flexible schedule.

    Cons

    Company is subsidiary of Accenture so must do all the Accenture training and etc...

    Advice to Management

    Nothing

    I have been working at Navitaire full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Excellent people at all levels; lots of potential in the company and opportunities to set your own direction and work schedule; Many long-term and returned (left and were hired back) employees show that this is a "family" -- in addition to being a company. Parent company is Accenture and there are outstanding benefits, in addition to a driving force for "inclusion and diversity" -- which can be a bit of fresh air in Utah. People genuinely care about each other and it is a pleasure to work here.

    Cons

    Lack of growth/career opportunities due to the size of the company (relatively small) and little attrition ("waiting for someone to get hit by a bus").

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more (there can NEVER be too much)

    I worked at Navitaire full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    People were great to work with, exciting work at times, great customers, chance to travel. Solid company with great product.

    Cons

    Management, process, politics, no advancement and underpaid for market.

    Advice to Management

    They need managers with better vision and people skills. Most managers are ex-developers and seem to rather code in their offices than get out and meet and lead the company. Had managers who didn't even know my name.

    Pros

    Good direction and management. The proper amount of planning and gathering of the right resources created a great place to work. All other companies I've worked for could take lessons.

    Cons

    Like any software shop deadlines and long hours from time to time. The only other con is the current downturn in the travel industry.

    Advice to Management

    None.

    Pros

    Navitaire invests in their employees and helps them grow both personally and professionaly. There are a lot of employees who have been there for many years so if you do a good job they do recognize that and make it known. For the most part it is a very good place to work.

    Cons

    There was a lot of turn over when I worked there in management. When they would hire new management the transition was often times difficult for them to get up to speed and understand the business. In addition, they had a lot of employees over seas which made communication difficult for many reasons.

    Advice to Management

    Value your employees here in the States even if it comes at a cost. The benifits out weight the negatives in my opinion. I understand the whole competitive issue...but when your employees feel value - that is worth more in the long run.

    Pros

    Great culture and people. People are always ready to help each other out.

    Cons

    Small organization so there is not much room for growth when you reach the Associate Manager or Manager Level. You will have to wait for a Senior Manager to leave to get an opening. We are also currently under Accenture and I don't like the forced ranking rating system. Individual contributors also have a harder time getting promoted to the higher levels in the office since much of the mindset is still set on how many people are being supervised. This mindset has to change but it will still take time.

    Advice to Management

    In Manila office the most senior position is the Senior Manager role. Management should look at creative ways to address this since this is the limit of the current structure. Maybe they can look at the armed forces structure where there are officers and also senior enlisted personnel like the sergeant major position. they can also look at having classes or specialist titles (e.g or Sergeant first class, second class, QA specialist 3rd class etc). For those people who may not be promoted to Senior manager then there are promotion grades or level so that they can have levels to target and get increases even if they don't move to the next level since the current structure and team size limits this.
