What are perks and other benefits like at Passport?

Pros

I’ve never worked for a more caring company. Even before the coronavirus hit, Passport was a very employee-friendly company (good pay, good benefits, great culture, and my manager is awesome). Then comes coronavirus and Passport makes employee safety the top priority. Everyone (I’m pretty sure everyone) works from home and they haven’t been pushing us to come back until everything clears with the virus. Communication has somehow gotten better since we’ve all started working from home, and me and my friends are way happier. If you feel like you’re not in the know or aren’t getting answers, then you’re not paying attention. Then, on October 1 Passport leadership got us all raises. A pretty cool effort given that most companies I know about aren’t doing raises and such because of coronavirus. There’s also a lot of talk on this page about diversity and such. I get the sense that a lot of the folks at Passport haven’t worked anywhere else. The stuff Passport is doing to start conversations about diversity and make meaningful change is amazing, and it’s far beyond anywhere else I’ve worked! The book discussion, speaker series, training, and there are more plans coming. In case you haven’t put it all together, that stuff costs money and Passport is putting money on diversity. I don’t know how much, but putting together an initiative like that isn’t cheap. It’s really encouraging to see leaders put their money where their mouth is on this.

Cons

I have ZERO bad things to say about Passport. It’s a great company who takes care of its employees.

What is paid time off like at Passport?

Pros

--Many talented mid-level employees who are fantastic people and colleagues --Most teams have good work/life balance and the ability to work from home (pre-pandemic)/work flexible hours/take time off when needed (including unlimited PTO) --Employees really care about the success of the business and are willing to work hard to achieve goals

Cons

Passport is run by an inner circle of men who make all of the decisions and are not open to new/different opinions or ideas --Men in the 'boy's club' are promoted to positions that they are unqualified for - multiple VPs in the company had ZERO prior experience before getting promoted to their roles (their only 'in' is their relationships with leadership) --It is a widely known 'secret' that multiple men in key leadership roles have had relationships with younger women in the company, often resulting in the women leaving the company, while the men get promoted Not a welcoming or supportive environment for women or minorities (women are talked over, left out of important meetings, denied promotions, ignored, looked down upon, and there are very few women in leadership roles) --Personally, I've had men in leadership comment on my appearance and weight and heard them say the same of other women in the company and witnessed one male leader laugh out loud when the topic of adding more women to the leadership team came up --I've also seen women passed over for promotions and be told that they aren't deserving of a higher title, even though they are delivering results and are well-respected by their peers and subordinates Extreme micromanagement by leadership & lack of trust in employees - company hires talented employees with experience but doesn't allow them to do their jobs --As mentioned above, men are rewarded based on their connections and relationships, while anyone on the outside of this circle is required to prove their abilities time and time again, with a slim possibility of growth --Employees are not trusted to do their jobs and are subject to oversight by people outside their chain of command, regardless of their level of experience Horrible at taking feedback – dozens of talented employees have left in the past year and many shared the same concerns about leadership and how the company is run, but no changes have been made

Advice to Management

Diversify leadership team and then actually respect, trust and listen to the people you hire. What you're doing now isn't working and change needs to come from the top down.

Does Passport offer pet insurance?

Pros

in short - good people make good decisions. that's what Passport is all about! in long - I worked for them for 5 years. I have never felt being left out. Even being an offshore employee, I was given enough space in all things they did. I was taken care of. It's always the employee's interests that takes them higher. You could play with any tech of your choice and they'll always be encouraging. Such an environment that you would really long for. - no micromanagement - flexible work hours - unlimited vacations - a really lot of benefits even like pet insurance and moreover, people whom you work with are like your buddies. ofcourse the CTO as well!

Cons

I was unfortunate to be an offshore employee.

Advice to Management

no advice. Keep up the great things you do as always!

a really lot of benefits even like pet insurance
