    I have been working at Explorica full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    -Building relationships with teachers and selling a product that really changes people. -Flexible work schedule -Great people to work around -Working here has gotten a lot better over time. Management is doing a better job hiring the right people.

    Cons

    -Not a lot of career advancement or opportunity to move around internally. -Hitting sales goals and forecasting is hard since you are selling to a third party.

    I worked at Explorica full-time

    Pros

    Some staff and coworkers are great people, and make great coworkers. Some fun perks, like staff tours. Selling travel is a great way to make a living, thus the work is meaningful. CEO is great.

    Cons

    Toxic work environment. Absurdly low pay, and management will keep you in a low position for a very long time. Hours are long and stressful for no reason. High turnover. Have seen people who have worked on the sales floor for a year, to be fired in front of their ex-coworkers. Little transparency from upper management. HR is interconnected with management, and thus does not look out for your best interests. As a salesperson, you are expected to act like a telemarketer, and not treated respectfully. If you want a career in travel sales, work at EF.

    Pros

    The team players are great people.

    Cons

    Upper management is only worried about the bottom line, their HR is a disaster, the job is underpaid, the sales team is a constantly revolving door, etc.

    Pros

    Explorica is a great place to work for a young adult just starting out the work field. The company has a young hip atmosphere with lots of great people. The sales team is very competitive.

    Cons

    The communication between departments is left to be desired. It has appeared to be this way for years and I do not see this getting any better.
