    I worked at Travelport full-time (less than a year)

    Pros

    Attempting to become a collaborative environment

    Cons

    Too much bureaucracy; no one within HR have true strategic vision; the company led efforts from UK do not transfer to the US; Leaders are not real leaders; very gossipy environment; no real HR value; structure is not conducive to true Talent Management and Development; HR leaders are very junior to true strategic leadership efforts; HR Business Partners are not partners...they are generalists at MOST!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Too top heavy, lessen the bureaucracy, put in place stronger leaders

    Pros

    Very structured working environment. Great mentors, employees, ect...

    Cons

    Very slow to do anything or make necessary changes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The company is undergoing some change to hire younger folks directly out of their internship programs. It's unfortunate that management is falling victims of hiring the more extroverted individuals who have significantly lower morals and values than those who are more reserved with higher values and morals.

    Pros

    They allow you to easily balance your work and life, Very friendly caring management, there nice helpful inner office community. They allow you to work from home.

    Cons

    The cons are low entry level pay, redundant tasks, many of the systems and languages you will work with are proprietary so they do not transition to jobs at other companies well.

    Pros

    Pleasant work culture and decent compensation. Travel related perks were also very good. Training sessions on a regular basis were a good idea.

    Difficulty in working with other departments due to politics. An industry subject to severe market changes although probably on an up cycle now.
