    I have been working at Travelport full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Extrememly profitible company and salaries are competitive (and negotiable)!

    Cons

    My complaints fall in a couple areas:
    1. Technology - The databases and lifesource of the whole business is running on old IBM mainframes. Runs good and stable but the knowledge around these machines are in the heads of 30 year employees who refuse to pass it on for their job security.

    2. The management is still in the mindset that "You must be at your desk at 8 and don't leave till 5" rather than just get your job done and don't worry about anyone else. And yes, I have a couple people tracking my time now!

    3. When you walk in the office (i work in kc, mo), it's dead quiet with a endless view of high-walled cubicles. I'm acutally listening to my keyboard click right now and echo throughout the building.

    4. Many people here are old and cranky. Now I don't discriminate but what gets me is when you walk down the hall and try to greet someone, look them in the eye...only to see them stare at the wall that's away from you. I want to say "There's nothing on that wall coward! Look at me". This may just be my hangup

    Advice to Management

    Be visible more if possible. MOst of the management works in england and we're sorta isolated in this quiet kc office.
