    I have been working at Travelzoo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I have always felt appreciated here at Travelzoo. I enjoy coming to work everyday - the people I work with are smart, creative, motivated and friendly. Our benefits package is great - we have health, dental, vision insurance; the Travelzoo Experience (annual stipends to take Travelzoo trips); and generous vacation time. We also do a great job of celebrating our wins, whether that's an additional million subscribers, a strong quarter, impressive performance from an employee or overall recognition for the company. This is generally a positive and supportive work environment.

    Cons

    I think we're feeling some growing pains as we transition from being a start-up to a scaled-up company. Years ago, we were small in size so we didn't have to jump through hoops to get approval on new projects or processes. Now we have to fight a bit to make progress internally and some of the processes in place don't make sense anymore. We're still trying to work out some of the kinks as we grow our staff and our product offerings.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to show your appreciation and support for your teams - this is the one thing above all that keeps me motivated to contribute to the success of this company.
