Pros

Smart group of folks - passionate about travel. Organization cares about the needs of it's employees and is very fair in how and what it communicates about the state of the business on a regular basis - even and especially in times of economic uncertainty. Note - a new management team took over in 2006, however, many key execs are still part of the team.

Cons

Not as nimble as it could be - needs to be more of a leader in the only user experience of how it sells it's products

Advice to Management

Continue to be relentlessly focused on results and improvement through every area of the business.

    Disapproves of CEO

    Pros

    several long-time key employess remain. people with good values and concern for others. in spite of current ownership, deep in the DNA of this place lives a concern for people that book their travel with the company. The customer does matter to so many of the people that still work here.

    Cons

    owners look at the world in unique ways...
    there is little expression of vision (i believe there is not one)
    days are long for a few key people that have tremendous work ethic but not so long for a cadre of loafers that always seem to survive the lay-offs. there have been more than 3 of those in as many years....

    Advice to Management

    pay attention to the stuff that really matters and get rid of the dead weight that still hangs around there. and for God's sake who needs 2 CEO's . Come on really!

    Pros

    Solid company with growth potential in a tough market. Interaction between management and others is good. All areas of the company try to work together to find solutions.

    Cons

    Constant schedule changes for front line sales force. Sometimes level of respect for employees is missing. Public "talking down" about employees that is heard by others.

    Advice to Management

    Good place to work, could be better with more care and concern of managing a work/life balance.
