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

    Pros

    It is a great software company. It feels like a family. We care about what we do, we take pride on what we build and we take ownership of our diverse projects.

    We are innovating to continue to grow with our clients: airlines from all over the world.

    Excellent benefits. Some even better than the "unicorns" in the valley. (410k 100% match on 6% 1 year vesting, 3 weeks PTO, 10 holidays, 3 floating, health, dental, life insurances, training, flexible schedule) and of course competitive pay and let me tell you, we are a profitable.

    Average tenure of employees here is 8 years. Many people I work with have been here for more than 10 years. Some for 15 and 20+). Even our office manager retired few months ago after 25+ years working here. We like it here.

    Cons

    Older tech in some projects.
    We haven't embraced agile yet.

    Pros

    The people are great. The environment is very relaxed most of the time and the problems are challenging. The system that you work on services millions upon millions of people all around the world.

    Cons

    While it can be very relaxed it can also be very stressful. Working with diverse cultures can be challenging at times, especially when language is a barrier. Pay could always be better. And lastly, the amount of red tape can be discouraging at times.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to embrace change and encourage it in the organization. Don't forget to pay attention to your employees and help them feel valued in the organization. Also, having fun is important.

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

    Pros

    Decent benefits, ability to work from home when needed. The company has done fairly well with retaining and acquiring customers.

    Cons

    Once you're an employee you're a piece of trash that can't be discarded. They want to hire ninjas, mavens, unicorns and fairy tale employees but they won't pay competitive salaries. A lot of the work is being contracted now and many employees have left. The culture has gone down hill quickly.

    Advice to Management

    Open your eyes. It's not 1996 anymore. Pay competitively, build and mentor your employees instead of ignoring them.

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

    Pros

    talented workforce, competitive salary, dynamic industry, innovative culture, helpful individuals and global atmosphere.

    Cons

    upward mobility with regards to title/position can be challenging. global nature of company can also be difficult with coordinating schedules and collaboration across timezones. while the organization feels very "flat" across the board with senior managers working well with business analysts, it does feel like the business analysts rarely get a chance to travel and interact with customers in person.

    Advice to Management

    push for business analysts to interact more with customers 1-1

    Pros

    Really good architecture and fun people to work with. Management is a bit distant but the company is doing well so I assume they are making the right decisions.

    Cons

    Because of the way they do releases you might be sitting around for a while waiting for QA to finish with nothing to do.

    Pros

    Excellent people at all levels; lots of potential in the company and opportunities to set your own direction and work schedule; Many long-term and returned (left and were hired back) employees show that this is a "family" -- in addition to being a company.

    Parent company is Accenture and there are outstanding benefits, in addition to a driving force for "inclusion and diversity" -- which can be a bit of fresh air in Utah.

    People genuinely care about each other and it is a pleasure to work here.

    Cons

    Lack of growth/career opportunities due to the size of the company (relatively small) and little attrition ("waiting for someone to get hit by a bus").

    Advice to Management

    Communicate more (there can NEVER be too much)
