Approves of CEO

I worked at The Mark Travel Corporation full-time (More than 3 years)

Pros

Bill La Macchia Sr. is an icon in the travel industry - the real deal. Sincerely dedicated to his customers and employees.

Cons

Remainder of executive leadership is hit or miss. Travel industry is extremely competitive, and some solid managers that helped transform the company have left over the past few years.

Advice to Management

Whoever takes over for Bill La Macchia Sr. is a big question that will determine the future of the company. With only Funjet & Southwest Vacations remaining as major brands, the Trisept technology team will also need to step up to put the company back on a growth path.

    I worked at The Mark Travel Corporation full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Travel benefits are abundant.
    Generous time-off system to enable travel.
    Prefer to hire from within.
    Large organization with lots of opportunities for advancement (mainly Milwaukee corporate office).
    Teams are well assembled and management cares about team and individual success.

    Cons

    As with many jobs in the travel industry, wages are low for the talent and skill levels.
    Again, as with much of the travel industry, jobs are not secure. Changes in consumer purchasing habits often impact vacation travel first and hardest.
    Upper management often fragmented on direction.
    Technology and advertising providers are mainly in-house (Trisept Solutions and BVK) and overtaxed. This often led to ivory-tower decisions and long waits to get solutions.
    If you work in a satellite office, opportunities for advancement are not nearly as abundant as Milwaukee.

    Advice to Management

    Stop relying on today's revenue to pay today's bills. Save a significant portion of the profits to build up a nest egg to cover costs. This reduces, or eliminates, the need to borrow money and can become a revenue stream instead of a liability.
