    Pros

    Young company in an exciting industry.

    Very demanding and people are not very friendly. Looks like everyone only live to work there. Lots of turnover.

    Put some effort in recognizing great talent and keeping it.

    Pros

    Home office is great if you are self-motivated. One could make good money if the territory was appropriate - some are not. Coworkers were great.

    Cons

    They have wayyy too many products for one person to sell well. Training was terrible and there was very little guidance from my boss. Expectation to sell product to customers that didn't need or couldn't afford. Implementations were frequently a mess - especially for the website products.

    Advice to Management

    You let most of the good people go.

    I worked at TravelClick full-time

    Pros

    People are very hard working and care about what they are doing and working on

    Cons

    Upper management don't care about burning out team members as long as they drive up ebitda so they can make fat bonuses and get a huge payday after the company sells. Everything is about short term gains. High turnover.

    Advice to Management

    Not rewarding people and not caring about the very people that are making you rich is not a good strategy.

    Pros

    Very relaxed environment where no one really works.

    Cons

    A lot of favoritism in this place. You either click or dont here...there is no in between. The supervisors are as goofy, inconsistent as the employees. Feels like your back in high school a lot of young employees.

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

    Pros

    They are a global company with a firm footprint in the hospitality industry for over 20 years. They have representatives in every major market and the ability to work from home is a great benefit saving on travel expenses and time.

    Cons

    The company offers a great number of talented people in all areas from sales, operations and even HR. Unfortunately, no one sticks around. This is mainly due to the "stubborn" CEO and disjointed senior leadership (his minions). Regardless of the many Vice Presidents, there is only 1 true decision maker. It is clear from the onset that the company is more interested in its financial performance and future sale of the company and less about serving the needs of the industry for which it serves. The growth of TravelClick is mainly due to the many companies it acquires year after year and less due to the organic dependency on creating innovative "must have" technology that the industry actually needs or demands. Internally, there is a clear division between the sales organization and the product dev organization causing severe deficiencies in environment, work flow and overall productivity. The division is mainly due to the lack of alignment in their respective goals and compensation. The product org is incentivized on profit margin while the sales org is incentivized on revenues. The decision to structure the company in this manner is irresponsible and has yet to prove its effectiveness. This combined with the fact that there are simply not enough people to support the number of customers it has, makes TravelClick a fairly hostile place to work. There is no recognition for a job well done and the lackluster benefits, teamwork and overall unhealthy corporate culture - has folks bolting at the end of the day.
