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

    Pros

    Great people surrounding you and supporting you. The management/leadership knows the business very well and are very active in the industry

    Cons

    Management/leadership knows little about business. Middle management is only in a leadership roles because of years served. Departments know almost nothing about each others functions or needs even after working together for decades

    Advice to Management

    Start with the basics, budgets are enforced and known, hold people accountable for not doing things or standing still. Staff is afraid of change

  3. Where did it all go wrong? TI had turned the corner 2010 and then consultants came in to fix a problem.

    I worked at Travel Impressions (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Worked with some great people who taught me a lot about the Travel Industry and business. It was not until after my position was eliminated I knew who my real colleagues were.

    Cons

    There were double standards for management. It was difficult on a Friday because people were "working from home." The company did not want to spend the money when it came to investing in the right technology to stay competitive.

    Advice to Management

    At this point I know Apple Vacations acquired them from American Express over a year ago. From what I have heard a lot has changed and there is new leadership.

    Sr. management of department needs improvement and the leadership could be more professional.

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

    Pros

    Most of the employees have a genuine care for what they do. Good opportunities for travel.

    Cons

    Depending on which office you are located in severely impacts your ability to work in other departments or advance upward. Lots of incompetent management who don't stand up to initiate positive changes, and plenty of empty promises.

    Advice to Management

    Consider how far you can push customers and employees before you lose them.

    I worked at Travel Impressions full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    customer service is their main objective, Great way to visit popular vacation spots. Training is intensive. Busy office setting

    Cons

    Small cubicles with small desks. Lots of gossip and personality conflicts due to a large number of diverse people in a confined area

    Advice to Management

    Have the ability to work from home. Supervisors should not be able to be best friends with certain co-workers because the feelings they share outside of work are inevitably brought to the work area.

    I worked at Travel Impressions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The people are wonderful. My managers and coworkers were great people.

    Cons

    Someone crapped on the floor of the women's bathroom. I am not kidding. An adult woman actually defecated on the floor. Passive aggression?

    Advice to Management

    Is there a way to better reward the employees? I feel like many of my colleagues seemed so downtrodden; there are little benefits, even when they sacrifice for the company (like working several Friday nights without any recompense). I think most there felt like their work was unappreciated.

    I have been working at Travel Impressions full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere. Nothing more that I can think of.

    Cons

    Where do I begin! The whole company is poorly ran! Extremely disorganized, no communication, they treat employees like crap, the pay is horrible, they stop paying you when your shift ends even if you are stuck on a call an hour after your shift ends! Management is either lazy or just doesnt care or perhaps both! Too much dead weight and excuses. Good luck if you think you are going to take advantage of travel benefits!

    Advice to Management

    The entire management team needs to be overhauled and start from scratch! Emphasize on your customers! Value your front line employees who talk to your customers daily and bring in money! Pay us a fair decent wage, act like you are a team! Communicate with employees.
