    Pros

    Youthful work culture. Feels like a startup (may even have the potential to act like one).

    Cons

    Company is in an identity crisis post-Anthony Bourdain, Samantha Brown, etc. No one at the top with a clear vision of what travel programming should be going forward.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Redefine brand. Take risks with new shows/talent. Invest in digital offerings.
