    Pros

    Laid back atmosphere, similar to what you would expect from an Internet company
    Very casual dress code, or lack there of.
    Located in Ogilvie Transportation Center.

    Cons

    Incompetent Senior Leadership
    Awful performance management and review process
    Incestuous relationship with Travelport hinders management from making the right decisions
    Compensation is below par, unless you are part of Senior Leadership

    Advice to Management

    Stop lining your own pockets with raises and bonuses and stock, and start focusing on retaining good talent. Start paying attention to the declining stock price, rather than telling the rest of us to ignore it.

    Pros

    This company really does care about the community and the employees. There are a lot of green initiatives happening in the company that help reduce corporate waste. Also, we get 2 paid days off a year specifically designed to go volunteer somewhere in the community. The paid week off between Christmas and New Year's Eve isn't too shabby either!

    Cons

    This could be considered a con to some, but the overall structure of the company is very horizontal, not vertical. There are plenty of chances to get into a new department and try new jobs, but advancing in your own field can be difficult. It's just the way the company is set up.

    Advice to Management

    I would like to see more chances to see what others in the company are doing. More "entry level" introductions to different departments please!
