    Pros

    Small upper management makes it easy to work through processes. Information is given immediately.

    Cons

    Compensation isn't in comparison to a travel manager on the customer side.

    Advice to Management

    As a part of management, the only thing I would recommend is to better trust your employees to try things, expose them to other parts of the company.

    Pros

    BCD Travel does provide many varied training opportunities. They also provide a good mixture of work/life balance as well as many opportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    BCD Travel seems to be on the low end of the pay scale for the industry and the area of the country they are located in. Insurance/benefits could be better. Premiums are too high for a company of this size.

    Advice to Management

    Management would do well to work harder at keeping the proven talent that they have versus hiring inexperienced agents just to save a few dollars when it could mean losing the very accounts that pay the bills.
