    I have been working at Online Vacation Center full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Organized and intelligent upper management, constant incentives / bonus opportunities, a beautiful office space, and excellent training. This is a family run company with a heart. It shows in the details of how they run their business such as making efforts to improve our company's environmental footprint, offering ample PTO, monthly birthday celebrations, bagels in the lunch room every Friday, and my personal favorite - little toothbrushes in the bathrooms. (That last one really sold me.)

    Cons

    We tend to run out of Honey Nut cream cheese before we run out of bagels on Bagel Fridays.

    Advice to Management

    Recognize inherent talent and place it appropriately ... but they already know this.
