    I worked at Hotelbeds full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Health Insurance benefits company pay 50% - PTO - End of year Bonus. Started out of college and was able to learn a lot for the first couple of years.

    Cons

    Moving up in the company is not worth it, it's all about who you know and how well do you know them, and what you can do for them.
    They are moving a lot of departments out of the US to Mexico to keep minimizing costs.
    Pay is not good at all.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your employees what they are worth, basing it on the amount of work they do, and always keep in mind cost of living, it fluctuates yearly so companies should adjust compensations as well.

    Pros

    When compared to other Central Florida Employers, this was a really great place to work.
    It can be very difficult to find considerate and high quality Employers in Florida, however this one was a great experience if you work hard and try to do an efficient job.
    The high European standards, clean,colorful professional environment and pay was considerate and above average for the Orlando area.
    Coming from modern Europe, the company has a lot of creative lessons to teach local Southern US based companies - Pay your employees better, share the wealth with annual bonuses and encourage human development and upward mobility to aid with employee retention.
    This company is genuinely human, it did not have the sense of Greedy and Selfish overtones exhibited by most American companies here in Central Florida.

    Cons

    Nothing human is always perfect, considering that, there were hardly any downsides

    Advice to Management

    Nothing human is always perfect however overall working there is a great experience.
    The standards, environment and pay was considerate and above average for the Orlando area.
    Company is a welcome asset to the people who live and work here with a lot of valuable lifelong lessons to offer.

    I have been working at Hotelbeds full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Full time, payment every week.

    Cons

    Big bullies are allowed to do whatever they want. A Brazilian lady "Mrs M." It rude with clients, coworkers, hotels... And nobody said a word!!!!

    Advice to Management

    Don't forget that you need to be a leader and control the bad attitude within all your's employees and do not allow Mrs M to act like she runs the CRC because that's shameful. Every body is afraid of her you know that!!! But you pretend that nothing is going on!

    I worked at Hotelbeds full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Full-time job. Always paid on time. Co-workers share the same pain.

    Cons

    I worked at Hotelbeds for 4 years, I worked in 3 different departments, I was promissed a raise the first time I moved departments and only got it 9 months later because I was emailing everyone and their mother about it. The second move came with no raise, the third also no raise and I had to train co-workers and supervisors. There is absolutely no growth with this company unless you are someone's best friend or a relative or willing to work harder for the same pay, basically just for the title. Huge turnaround. Micromanaging is also a big problem.

    Advice to Management

    My business classes always said that today managers are to encourage employees and encourage team work; please go back to school and learn to be a leader, where you motivate your employees for better results and a more stress free work environment and not constantly beating them down.

    Pros

    Nice people to work with.

    Cons

    Unorganized. Severe Lack of communication. No consistency in there policies and procedures. Nothing can be done without HQ's blessing. Local IT is only for hardware issues and limited software incidences, and If you have any type problem with company exclusive software, accounting, operations etc, open a ticket and good luck waiting for HQ to handle or even acknowledge that there is a problem. Any type of improvement that does not necessarily work for HQ but can work for the region is delayed and not given any type of priority. No anticipation to incidences even after possible scenarios are presented; HQ still does nothing until it happens. Spain HQ has way too much bank holidays so regions are left in the dark for those days even in emergency situations.

    Advice to Management

    Sell it to an OTA that knows what they're doing.
