Featured Review

Former Employee - Global Sales

I worked at BCD Travel full-time for more than 3 years

Pros

Truly a global company - you get the opportunity to work with people from all across the planet.

Cons

Way too many VPs, SVPs and EVPs. They cut a big swath out of the c-suite every year, but then turn around and promote just as many people again.

Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

I have been working at Hostelworld Group full-time

Pros

- Company ideals are inspiring. - Working in the Travel Industry is really fun - There are some wonderful people working at Hostelworld - There are always new projects happening

Cons

- Upper management demands unrealistic results that aren't based on carefully calculated statistical forecasts. - When said unrealistic results are not met, management view lower level staff as lazy... or uninterested, ignoring the many other contributing factors. - Management culture discourages progression and improvement. - Standing in the company, pay status and promotion opportunities are based on face time with the right managers, rather than results or merit.

Advice to Management

Encourage creativity. Base pay raises and company standing on actual merit. Set realistic goals based on statistical forecasts and stick to them. Appreciate employee improvement and growth.
