    Pros

    Very supportive, small work place that felt like a family. The best benefit was how flexible everyone was if you needed time off. Travel perks were ok, not as great as in years past., but that is mainly because of the industry. Great hotel discounts with an IATA membership.

    Cons

    Travel agencies are becoming a thing of the past, so I wouldn't recommend becoming one if you want to make it a career. Uniglobe was very small, so it was hard to compete with the bigger agencies, or online providers. The benefits were minimal, no dental or 401K plan.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more benefits for employees

    Pros

    None that I can think of.

    Cons

    Disorganised Management make commitments to clients they know aren't possible.

    Advice to Management

    Remember it is always better to over deliver, stop with agreeing to deliver that which you don't have the capacity to do.

    Pros

    Reduced travel and accommodation costs, free downtown parking.

    Cons

    Management does not communicate with each other nor with support staff. Reception rarely knows what is going on and not one employee informs them of when they are away. Two tiered system. Those less important are housed on the main floor while those with much more important status are housed on the second floor. Support staff is treated as if they are of no importance by those on the second floor and many of the remote agents and frequently are spoken to in a condescending manner Building has mice and little is done to ensure the premiss is clean. There are mouse traps in the hallways and mouse dropping in desk drawers. The elevator is an old barn freight elevator and the building is not accessible for the disabled. Management takes no accountability for the piles and piles of garbage and boxed items are stored beside the 20 or so empty desks from past dismissals and those agents now working from home. The office is a total mess, washroom are disgusting and those open to the public rarely work and smell bad. There are dishes in the public washroom due to the lack of a staff lunch room for those on the main floor. Management here is at a loss and provide no direction. Corporate culture is unhealthy.

    Advice to Management

    Step up to the plate and communicate with your people. Listen to what they have to say and be less defensive.

    Pros

    My first real job. Excellent place to learn. Senior Management was very helpful.

    Cons

    Online travel is hard to compete with.

    Advice to Management

    Have a method in place where the employees can review their supervisor or manager on a regular basis.

    Pros

    Very fun, relaxed, and personal atmosphere to work. It felt like a family and whenever you needed to take time off everyone would pitch in to help. Awesome perks, such as discounted or free hotel stays, rental cars, cruises, and airline tickets.

    Cons

    Very small company did not allow for much growth. Limited accounts and the downturn of the economy in recent years has made it difficult to acquire new business.

    Advice to Management

    Great job overall, although I would like to see more benefits (example, 401K and health/dental) and more commission based earnings.
