Pros

People who work here really love all things travel. Currently, the company is growing in many ways - it's firmed up their brand presence, it is working to become more innovative and agile, and it continues to add employee benefits to the mix. The company is starting to realize that to be competitive with Microsoft and Amazon they must pay top talent more.

Cons

As with any other company there are silos - often one side of the business doesn't talk to the other. There is no formalized mentoring program, the career is 100% in your hands. Unless you are lucky, you probably won't have anyone that will help you develop your skills, or move to the next step in your career. There is a lack of female leadership on the VP level.

Advice to Management

Develop your talent or you will lose it.

    Organic growth/internal promotion in careers into management positions seems to be very few.

    Pros

    Good leadership and lots of fun outside of work.

    Cons

    As with most companies its size, there is a fair bit of politics and posturing. And there are a few bad apples. As long as one understands that this is the nature of the beast, and one just has to learn to deal with it...it is not a problem

    Advice to Management

    Raise salaries or you will lose a lot of good people
