    Extremely smart and hard-working people. A bit of a tough culture.

    I worked at TravelClick full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Some of the best and smartest leaders you'll ever get to know work at TravelClick. A lot of former execs from American Express and corp america. Guaranteed that you'll work harder and learn more than you ever have in a prior job. Compensation is very much pay-for-performance, so it can be strong depending on where you end up. A lot of opportunity at TravelClick for growth especially since they were recently sold to another PE company.

    Cons

    Culture is tough. And the people here work very hard. This may drive some people away. Especially when the startup culture and work-life balance is becoming more important than ever and is key in attracting and retaining talent.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Promote a positive environment and culture. But start it from the top.

    Pros

    Very laid back. Great training. They gradually trained me so i wasn't given too much information at once. I was able to learn more and more each day.

    Cons

    Not a lot of growth. The departments are very clicky.

    Pros

    I LOVE the people I work with and the open door policy facilitated by top management

    Cons

    There is very little training especially if you start anytime in Q4. Management is constantly moving around and shifting into new roles that were just "created" even when a new company just eliminated 150+ jobs. No Communication across teams so expect some miscommunication and prepare for upset clients.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Train your team with an official schedule - don't just forget about them because it starts to get busy.

    TravelClick has grown 300% in the past three years, and even with that rapid growth it was exciting.

    Pros

    This is as transparent a company as you will get. from the CEO on down everyone knows what is going on.

    Cons

    Having said that, there is a new Ownership at TravelClick and as soon as they took over, they eliminated 120+ positions. Not sure how the new ownership group will handle the company...

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    TravelClick has grown to be the Global leader in the cloud based revenue generating solutions in the Hospitality Industry because of its people and what they represent to their clients. Please don't change that chemistry.

    Pros

    Best part of working there are the people that work there.

    Cons

    Over worked and under paid. If you are not a manager, you have no "extras". You cannot look forward to an increase. As their increases are only 2%.
