    Pros

    Good opportunity to move up.

    Cons

    I liked the overall culture of the company but there were some bad eggs. The leadership of my team was somewhat lacking.

    Advice to Management

    Make sure that those managing people know how to do so. Do not allow people who have no experience in a superior position control people their age.

  6. This company has been great place to get started in the Project Management career.

    I like the flexibility, a fun environment, great talent all around you.

    Cons

    Lacks good leadership. Subordinates do not have a clear growth plan. Need more training.

    Advice to Management

    Subordinates need leaders not bosses.

    Pros

    -decent pay
    -health insurance isn't too expensive

    Cons

    -management works around the clock and expects that everyone do so as well absolutely no worklife balance
    -no real benefits like tuition reimbursement or real retirement contributions
    -management has a "cash out" attitude and are just trying to cut dollars to sell the company again so they can cash out their investments and run
    -no future or forward looking attitudes ( see last bullet)
    -pay for parking in orlando (and office is in terrible location example being a shoot out in the parking garage last year)
    -corporate location is full of "elitists" and they snub nose at other locations and workers

    Advice to Management

    after working here for some time i cannot say anything great about the company or do i even have fellow workers who enjoy being here. havent met anyone that seems like it actually

    Pros

    The people there are friendly and somewhat a good work-life balance.

    Cons

    If they offer you a 6 month contract to hire job, don't believe them. They will delay bringing you to a full time position. Also, there is really no chance of moving up within the company. Also there is no flex time if you work late, and there is a lack of communication within the company. Also they will hire you to do one thing and you will end up doing another.

    Advice to Management

    Better opportunities to grow within the company and at least some flex time.

  9. Great place to slack off if you just want a paycheck. If you want a career, stay away!

    Pros

    -Good gateway into the hospitality, web and or media fields
    - Working with Hotels & Resorts - for me, this was the best part of my 1.5 years here1
    - No accountability to do your job well
    - No HR department
    - Causal dress allowed (except men cannot wear shorts in the office, even if they are nice golf shorts, while women can where just about anything)

    Cons

    - Terrible pay; way below market rate. This is why they cannot attract and retain any good talent.
    - No accountability o do your job well
    - No room for growth; managers won't promote you if you show signs you are better at the job than they are
    - Terrible Executive Leadership - does not re-invest anything back into the company
    - Computers are refurbished beyond the point of even working; every morning it took my laptop over 30 minutes to boot up. Their solution? Bring my home laptop in to use for work.
    - No training whatsoever
    - Total chaos with no direction, leadership, or passion
    - Not interested in changing their processes even if it means foregoing increasing productivity/efficiency
    - Everything is so manual. No automation whatsoever.
    - When employees asked Larry (the CEO) what his plans are to increase training to various departments, he rolled his eyes as if this question genuinely bugged him. This is the exact moment I knew I had to leave.

    Advice to Management

    - Care more about the people who work hard all year long to put the $30m bonus in your pocket Larry (he's the CEO).
    - Stop hiring incompetent managers who know nothing about the space they are managing.
    - Pay market wages to attract & retain top talent.

    Pros

    I enjoy working at TravelClick since I have a high degree of freedom and autonomy, but I work remotely so it may not be the same for people in an office environment.

    Cons

    TravelClick is undoubtedly a leader in our space, but we have a lot of legacy issues to contend with. We often try to be everything to everyone instead of focusing on specific segments/clients and that causes problems. Leadership can be spotty sometimes and it is harder to get the attention of Senior Leadership than it should be. The CEO is intelligent and typically makes smart decisions, but is not very good about communicating the why and how, which leads to a poor perception. He is also not very charismatic, which makes things worse.

  11. Can use a little more structure

    Pros

    Great people, growth, company expansion. Exposure to new technologies

    Cons

    Work to life balance is not the best, lots of pressure to make sure things are done fast with little people

    Advice to Management

    Review all positions and get more people where needed. Many teams struggle due to lack of resources
