No opinion of CEO

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.

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at STA Travel full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Lax atmosphere and training provided, set schedules and solid structure. Adheres to state laws regarding breaks and lunches, will not over-schedule or under-schedule.

    Cons

    Entire departments are known to be closed without warning, rampant favoritism.

    Advice to Management

    Restructure your marketing team, they have lost money hand over fist with past sales because they don't recognize marketing channels for your demographic, and fail to see simple complications that set a sale (such as when it ends! horror for your call center team advising a customer the sale actually ended 8 hours prior, arguments ensue and money is WASTED).
