    Pros

    Employees are nice. Free cereal.

    Cons

    No 401k match. 10 days vacation. EXTREMELY expensive benefits package. No work life balance. No wfh (prior to covid). Low salaries. No direction from senior management. Laptops are only given to Senior Directors and above. They want you in the office always!

    I have been working at Fareportal full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    1) People are genuinely very nice and caring 2) A lot of diversity on the teams

    Cons

    1) DO NOT TRUST the reviews about Fareportal on this or any other review site - Fareportal leadership team have internal initiatives to drive up glassdoor ratings by pushing employees to write good reviews. 2) The CEO says he cares about Employees and Customers yet he cuts pay for all employees and then lets go of 50% of them. On top of that he charges customers gobs of money for cancellations and changes during COVID 19. The truth is the CEO only cares about lining his own pockets. 3) The HR leadership team is a joke - nothing works right in HR and decisions are made either without data or worse yet with made up data 4) The company shifts direction all the time without proper planning or communication. Even team members are moved from one team to another without notice.

    I worked at Fareportal full-time

    Pros

    Midtown, good location. Some skilled and interesting people.

    Cons

    Upper management is a revolving door. Each new manager experiments with some new process, so half of your time is spent learning some new way to do your job. Don't join for the travel benefits. They almost don't exist unless you win employee of the year.
