    I have been working at Altour full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Mostly friendly co-workers, dog friendly office, casual attire.

    Cons

    Little to no opportunity for growth, micromanaged by upper management, many changes are enforced with little to no input from employees, some employees are able to work from home, while others are not. Seems very unfair. Oh and benefits are pretty bad.

    I have been working at Altour full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Vacation time, health benefits

    Cons

    Terrible lazy upper management, resistance to ideas from lower level employees, even if it was proven time and time again that a new way of making profits for the company would work, schedule preference given to part time employees, management will get HR involved and threaten your employment status just to get their way

    Advice to Management

    To Alexandre H. Chemla, Clean house, your management has become complacent and any "threat" from a lower level employee out shining them is quickly rejected and made out to be a terrible idea. The company has a base of younger employees very eager to participate, senior employees are very quick to tell them their ideas will never work, and most of them are just there bidding their time until retirement and will do nothing except squash new ideas that have been proven to work.

    I worked at Altour full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Ability to telecommute, great co-workers, variety of hours or shifts available to work and the ability to switch hours ensuring you can take care of family needs.

    Cons

    Low pay, poor benefits, hostile work environment where favoritism by management is rewarded and actual hard work that benefits the company is either punished or ignored.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your employees and don't use management as a wall between the employees and the upper management and executives. This company could be amazing if some of the ideas of the "peons" was taken to heart.
