    Pros

    Amazing management. I seriously have the best boss ever! Makes an effort to connect constantly even though they are located at a different office. Backs me up on my goals and ideas. Makes me feel appreciated and want to come to work!
    Great benefits, unlimited PTO, open office layout, casual atmosphere, great opportunities to give back to the environment and community.
    Great colleges. Everyone is very smart and passionate about what they do! This pushes everyone to work smarter and harder.
    Growth! Just opened offices in Singapore and Dubai.
    Exciting industry

    Cons

    Fast paced, and change is constant here. But that is the industry. Growth is expected, so if you aren't able to move fast and work independently, you wont make it here.

    Advice to Management

    Keep being reachable to your employees. I love that all the CEO's are a part of the new hire orientation. Management really makes an effort to be reachable even when visiting the other offices. Your voice really is heard here.

    Pros

    It's basically like working with your closest friends and family. I loved coming in to work everyday. They really care about the people that work for them and they show it through the culture. There's a massive kitchen that they supply food for employees every week.

    Cons

    Product can be a tough sell in the growing industry. It's a constantly changing company so if you're someone who doesn't like change then I would advise against working here.

    Advice to Management

    Stay the same! Every manager really cares for the people that work for them, and you all really want everyone to succeed.

    Pros

    - My manager is seriously amazing & makes a huge effort to make sure the team feels appreciated and gets the resources we need to execute
    - Fantastic, down-to-earth, transparent leadership team
    - Smart, fun, down-to-earth colleagues
    - Unlimited PTO
    - Great company culture, lots of social events
    - Working in the travel industry
    - For the most part, they have their stuff together, compared to other companies and startups I've worked with
    - We're experiencing a lot of growth

    Cons

    We have pretty conservative budgets. On one hand, it's great that we don't waste money. On the other hand, there are some areas in need of investment and the extremely limited budgets will impact our ability to execute on our very lofty goals.

    Compensation & benefits are on par with other startups, but it would be nice to throw in wellness benefits, like a gym subsidy, & 401k matching.

    Advice to Management

    Great job! Keep up the communication around goals and strategy, to continuously help teams prioritize.

    Pros

    The team is great, super friendly down to earth people. They are very passionate and come from very interesting backgrounds with a lot of experience in the industry. There are office events and great snacks and lunches every so often... oh and unlimited vacation!

    Cons

    Growing really fast, so you need to be able to move fast and keep up... if you need a lot of hand holding and aren't able to execute quickly may not be the best fit.
