    Pros

    Explorica has a fun and relaxed work atmosphere, and great work/life balance. Great management that recognizes and rewards hard work. There are great travel opportunities and a lot of PTO. Easy and relaxed summers where you are encouraged to travel. I actually like coming to work every day!

    Cons

    The sales process can be difficult for some to grasp, but there is always support if you ask for it.

    Positive Outlook

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

    Pros

    Explorica offers a fun, young environment; close contact to executive team; great travel opportunities; generous PTO, & solid benefits. Sales seasons (fall & spring) are very busy and sometimes stressful, but hard work during the year pays off with quiet and short summers!

    Cons

    relatively flat organizational structure creates less opportunity for advancement in responsibilities; management not always willing to examine and improve inefficient systems/processes but rather solve with "band-aids" and one-off's.

    I worked at Explorica full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Travel opportunities, approachable management team, great colleagues

    Cons

    Travel benefits change on a yearly basis, so you don't know in advance if you have a reward to look forward too. Not too many upward mobility in terms of promotions.

    "100% Inside Sales Position"

    StarStarStarStarStar
     

    I worked at Explorica

    Pros

    Comfortable environment with young, fun people. Everybody is very interested in traveling & there are travel opportunities if you can produce the numbers they ask for.

    Cons

    - Incentives to sell are small. - Open sales floor - Management pushes hitting their numbers: dials per day, number of price quotes, etc. but does not do a good job of working with their sales executives to develop their approach and pitches.
