    Former Employee - Senior International Travel Consultant in Southlake, TX

    I worked at Travelocity full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Probably the most talented and passionate co-workers I have ever had or probably will ever have were at Travelocity. The Southlake campus was a great, casual work environment that seemed to foster creativity and teamwork. Opinions stated here are in reference to Travelocity Business which WAS the corporate travel division of Travelocity.

    Cons

    Abysmal and ineffective proprietary airline reservation system. Very little training related to actual position. Trainers needed training themselves. Management didn't actively encourage promotion. NO company travel benefits from Travelocity as Travelocity wanted to be mavericks and not beholden to any airline. Ha! How'd that work out for you?

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All too little, too late. Management refused to listen to employee suggestions for efficiency. That's okay the guilty upper management left after selling out the employees.

    I worked at Travelocity full-time (more than a year)

    Pros

    Nice Campus, Cafeteria, On Site Gym

    Cons

    No real training for new employees, no direction for employees, never could get access to systems that I needed to support

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure a position is needed before hiring for it. It is necessary to provide new employees without any previous experience at the company direction and training. Expecting that a new employee will just "pick things up" is silly and sets the employee and the manager up for failure.

    Pros

    Everything was great about working at Travelocity. I worked here for 8 years and wish I still did.

    Cons

    Everyone has lost or will lose their job working at Travelocity because the greedy get greedier and no one cares about people, only money. That is what the world has come to and Travelocity is just following in that path.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I worked at Travelocity full-time

    Pros

    Flexible work style
    Opportunity for Travel

    Cons

    Absolutely no communication in terms of Expectations - Never received a yearly performance review, let along mid year or quarterly
    Direction of Company never clearly communicated
    Strategy changes with daily performance
    Bonus is unevenly politically distributed
    Company is now just a shell for Expedia, only difference is Marketing
    No Truth or Support from Executive Leadership
    They will use you and lose you when they are done

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try looking in the mirror on occasion and not just your bank accounts!!

    I worked at Travelocity full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Opportunity to work with and learn from smart, passionate people; a strong sense of team in certain department. The executive leadership team was fairly transparent about the challenges facing the company, holding frequent town halls and communicating via e-mail with updates on company performance. Employees at all levels enjoyed flexible work policies and excellent benefits package courtesy of its parent company, Sabre. There was a certain sense of pride working there because everyone knows the gnome, though given the business performance, the brand definitely punched above its weight.

    Cons

    I was inspired by working there early on, but with the constant bad news it became harder and harder to feel that way. Department leaders, with few exceptions, were constantly trying to figure out how to take cost out of the business and do more with less resources. Senior leadership at times seemed to avoid making some really tough decisions. There were seemingly nonstop goodbye happy hours, especially after the Expedia announcement, which really sucked the air out of the room. At one point I would have proudly recommended Travelocity to friends, but given their current market position and future prospects it's difficult to do so now.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Unfortunately only a very few members of the management team are still there...
