    I have been working at Hostelworld Group full-time

    Pros

    - Company ideals are inspiring. - Working in the Travel Industry is really fun - There are some wonderful people working at Hostelworld - There are always new projects happening

    Cons

    - Upper management demands unrealistic results that aren't based on carefully calculated statistical forecasts. - When said unrealistic results are not met, management view lower level staff as lazy or uninterested, ignoring the many other contributing factors. - Management culture discourages progression and improvement. - Standing in the company, pay status and promotion opportunities are based on face time with the right managers, rather than results or merit.
