    If you like to be micromanaged, demoralized, and demotivated at a company with poor products, this is for you.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

    Pros- Good vacation policy
    - Decent benefits
    - Excellent support team

    ConsPros – (1) Generous time-off / vacation package

    1. Ineffective "leadership" unless you like to be micromanaged, demoralized, and demotivated (no real leaders but a manager and a few who like to "boss")
    2. Forget about an accurate appraisal of your work -- no kudos for jobs well done but plenty of criticism for the slightest misstep
    3. Too many , unproductive meetings
    4. No effective and productive systems in place
    5. Not given any direction or insight into strategy or vision; plan, goals, objectives
    6. Fuzzy answers given when good questions asked about the plan for improving the products

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

    Not a bad place to start your career, but morale is low and revenue is precarious.

    Anonymous Employee (Former Employee) New York, NY

    Pros- the people who have been there a long time are the stars, they are talented, intelligent, and pleasant to be around; they are the ones who keep the company afloat
    - good place to get your kick start and get some experience in an office environment
    - management makes attempts to get staff together

    Cons- poor hiring decisions that force current employees to work side by side with new people who don't show potential or investment in the company
    - low morale
    - high turnover
    - micromanagement of senior management, so they can't do their job and lead the company in the right direction

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    If You Want to Stagnate Professionally and Be Mistreated by CEO, Work Here

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) New York, NY

    Pros(1) Generous time-off / vacation package

    Cons(1) Terrible management / leadership
    (2) No performance reviews
    (3) No praise for jobs well done
    (4) Micro-management by definition
    (5) Too many meetings for a small company
    (6) No direction or strategy or vision or plan or goals or objectives

    Advice to Senior ManagementLeadership needs to be spread out across more than just the CEO. Give other division managers the ability to do their jobs without second-guessing every decision, holding a plethora of meetings just to hear yourself talk, and micro-managing each step of the daily job. Listen to your employees. Seek input. Show empathy. Treat employees as the assets they are and not a necessary by-product of owning a business.

    Excellent people, and nice culture.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    ProsCompany has clear mission to be leader in expert advice on travel. Great quality people. While there has been turnover, which to some extent is normal, there is a layer of strong staff from senior to junior level. Great vacation policy. Is neither too big nor too small -- nice size. Am proud of the content we produce.

    ConsCommunications across departments could be better. But management seems to be addressing this.

    Advice to Senior ManagementEncourage more communications -- top down and and bottom up. And between the departments. A few more socials would be good too.
