    I have been working at Travelport full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great work/life balance, fair pay, understanding managers, and great leadership. Terrific work environment and work from home ability.

    Interesting travel technology where you never face a lack of work or lack of enthusiasm to do the work as most of the work is directly driven by the industry.

    Cons

    As in every large successful company, change is frequent and can hurt. Sometime people you worked with for many years may get affected by a lay-off, but then can be rehired somewhere else within the company....

    Advice to Management

    Keep striving for better!

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Travelport.

    Interview

    I was contacted by email from someone in HR. The email essentially said we reviewed your resume and want to schedule a 30-45 minute call with you next week. Let us know what works for you. In the meantime, please complete this preliminary questionnaire before our call if possible.

    I completed the questionnaire promptly and returned it. Then I get another email saying "I am in a time crunch to get interviews scheduled for this role. I have added some additional questions to the original questionnaire. Would you mind filling in the remaining details?
    If so; I can then forward your information on and plan to coordinate you interview for early next week."

    As odd as this was coming over to me, I completed the additional questions promptly and returned them. After submitting the additional questions. I've yet to hear a word back from the HR person on if I was still getting scheduled for a phone call, or if they wanted me to kick rocks. Some sort of acknowledgement would've been nice and professional.
