    Pros

    Good environment, helpful colleagues, got all the latest tools and technologies.
    they have teams around the world
    best thing is you can work from home.

    little growth, too many meetings, working with global teams which you might have to work at odd hours
    like it but still not the best place to work.

    It was a great place to work for many years. Many of the jobs are virtual.

    I worked at Travelport full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Many of the people are amazing.
    The benefits are standard - health, dental, optical. Time off is also standard.
    The Virtual nature of the job is great as it allows one to live and work where ever but it does create isolation.
    Over the years in different departments I have had some fantastic bosses, but others have been just average.

    Cons

    Worldspan is being phased out in favor of Apollo in the US.
    There is not much push to advance, if you want a promotion you better be self motivated.

    Full of bureaucracy with SLT chanting empty strategy

    I have been working at Travelport full-time

    Pros

    + Good pay
    + Good work-life balance with flexible working hours
    + Some nice people if you fall into the right team
    + Good exposure in the combination of Technology and Travel

    Cons

    - They try to "communicate" (i mean, email) those corporate values, visions etc, but it's just full of empty words most of times. They say they want to revolutionize, but hey what's been done to revolutionize other than buying some other companies and doing nothing with it??
    - Too many people enjoying too much of flexible hour working, causing too many emails for a very simple thing
    - Heavily relying on GDS revenue. It's not that they don't do other things, but I think senior management still lacks of that "urgency" in brand whenever discussing non-GDS, non-flight subjects. No clear vision / substantial plan ready for further expansion or growth
    - One other thing that really hit me in the head was they celebrate so HARD when the revenue goes up thanks to economy recovery (it's just because people do more travel with more money!), and then don't really take actions when revenue goes down due to economy downturn.

    Overall... too much bureaucracy blocking company's success, as I think the technology & position it has is great compared to competitors.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just give way to young, from-the-front-line ones. You guys can now make very good politicians instead.
