What are perks and other benefits like at WeTravel?

Pros

Salary is really fair plus other benefits like commissions, annual company retreat, flexible work hours and holidays. The values team culture and environment are excellent. Everyone is willing to help the others and I feel my ideas are always heard. It’s possible to grow as an individual while also growing as an organization.

Cons

Honestly I cannot think of any.

Does WeTravel offer unlimited time off?

Pros

- The interview process is very straightforward and quick! Something that is much appreciated, I joined before they put in place Pinpoint, so I have no idea how the new recruiting process works anymore. They are looking for people really interested in the company, which makes sense! - WFH 2 days per week - The three founders are very down to earth and approachable - What matters is what you accomplish not what you wear, I didn't expect to be able to work wearing jeans since I'm coming from a very different place - They live up to what they promote: honesty, it's nice that they invite us all to this monthly online meeting to see what's happening within the company - Horizontal structure - Weekly 1 on 1 with your direct supervisor - 15five platform on place, which means that every week you have the chance to describe how are you feeling, what can be improved, and your workload - Annual retreat!!! This year we spent a week in Cartagena, which was a unique opportunity to gain in depth knowledge of the company and get the chance to meet all the fellow colleagues and understand what do they actually do within the company and who they are as people - Annual salary review (I think) - Unlimited paid time off

Cons

- Similar job positions in the Netherlands include additional benefits like: pension scheme, 13th month salary, individual savings contribution. Here you only get the mandatory 8% holiday payment (plus the annual retreat and unlimited time off) - They have many platforms on place but no training is provided so it can be overwhelming. Recently, a colleague started an initiative for that, so that was great! Let's see how it goes - Onboarding process can be improved. The information you get before your first day is very valuable and appreciated but once you have actually joined you can feel a bit lost on the things that are next, so rather than relying on your supervisor, it'd be nice that HR give you the necessary tools for that (like the platforms you'll use and the why and the who to ask what) - For me it was very weird to be surrounded by IT people but, at the same time, you know you can't ask them about your daily IT struggles, like how to actually use the printer, scanner, what to do in case you can't log in to your account

What is paid time off like at WeTravel?

Pros

None - I can't find any positive thing.

Cons

WeTravel is not for you if you want to gain experience and improve your knowledge in your field. The company is solely focused on profit. They don't care much about their employee. In my terms, I'm an intern who is eager to learn and devote my hours to learning, but I definitely couldn't find that environment. Even if you are a senior, you can't catch up with the present because the company only allows udemy accounts. Their educational support is poorer than I thought. If you don't support your eager engineers in terms of education, you can't keep them. Another thing is they don't plan. They seem to plan, but actually, they don't. They started an internship program with 7-8 interns saying, 'we want to raise you, and in the long term, we thought of you as a family.' Guess what? After three months, they forced each one of them to leave. The reason they say is, "we do not want interns or juniors; we want seniors" THEN WHY DID YOU START THIS PROGRAM? Through my internship, I thought my senior mentor would help me, and we would have a structured program as they promised. Well, no. Senior took time off for three weeks, and no one cared about me. They even helped new seniors to set up the local environment, but no one helped, and in the end, I set up my local env. on my own. For a while, I did my best. I was on my own. They forced us to ask more and more questions as interns, and I did as they wanted. After a while, they said, "You are asking and bothering us. Managers are angry at you". I'm here to learn you are there because you wanted me. Engineers have lots of pressure, and they can not manage their stress. The miscommunication between departments and engineers is the worst. If you ask them about their company culture, they will keep saying, "understanding, bla bla." Not at all. They are not transparent. They can't handle bad feedback, and they don't know the way to give bad feedback. The cofounders and some senior engineers have been friends for a long time. So they probably back up each other, so if you give any bad feedback, good luck. They don't accept their mistake, and nothing will be solved. Talking from my experience, I am sorry that it didn't work out. They must be the ones who should be ashamed because they lost an engineer who is eager for information, self-thought, young and transparent person. Also they pay you rather low. I was paid 363 dollar. This is not how engineering world works.

Advice to Management

nothing because they wouldn't care at all.

Senior took time off for three weeks, and no one cared about me.
