    I have been working at STA Travel full-time

    Pros

    Laid back culture (you can wear jeans if that's what is important to you)

    Cons

    Terminally ill business that will not adapt to save itself. This is exacerbated by new management that is completely out of touch with the business. Management's inability to communicate any type of vision or strategy for the future has everyone nervous and insecure about the future of the company. As a result, all the smart/talented employees have left causing a complete talent drain. I'm sure they could hire more people, but anyone worth having would not want to work in this completely dysfunctional environment. Everyone is packing their parachutes and leaving as quickly as they can. I hope I'm not the one left to turn out the lights when this meets its natural end.

    Advice to Management

    If you have a plan for God's sake please share it.
