I worked at Worldspan full-time for more than 8 years
Pros – Excellent people to work with. Opportunity for advancement. Good pay schedule.
Cons – Now owned by Travelport with too many new employees from Tralpot.
Advice to Senior Management – None. I was management. I'm sure I could have received more feedback from my people.

I worked at Worldspan
Pros – If you want a place tyo coast, where excuses count as deliverables, this is your home.
Cons – Management had its head in the sand. People were far too tolerant of poor performance.
Advice to Senior Management – Either learn to trust employees, or hire employees worth trusting.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend
