    Pros

    Opportunity to learn airline domain, 401k matches 6%

    Cons

    Tendency to hire in Krakow Poland making Southlake (headquarters) employees feel second class

    Advice to Management

    Quit overselling products and features with customers penalties on harddeadlines. This strategy is bad long term for employees as well as the business.

    Pros

    nice campus, decent pay for some.

    Cons

    layoffs - you never know when it's your turn to be thrown to the curb

    Advice to Management

    get your act together and know there are other options other than laying off good people. Jobs should stay in AMERICA not going to India.

    Always in a catchup mode with the market. Cannot think ahead of the game.

    Pros

    If you get the right line of report, you will be noticed for being creative, a problem solver, resourceful and for thinking outside the box. And you will be rewarded with career opportunities.
    Management and teams are engaged and smart, knowledgeable and committed with producing top quality work. However employees tend to be way more ready to work for best-of, than company is willing to invest in.
    Investment is carefully planned and many areas will suffer from chronic negligence in heir own internal process and system enhancements, just because they are not core to the mainstream line of revenue.

    Cons

    Director, manager or direct reporting line may not be the optimal at all times and that will slow down your career. Need to build your network and navigate politics to ensure you are placed at a nursery ground and not a burial.

    The ability ton contribute and truly affect change is extremely conditioned by the direct report ability to run risks and take the leap of trust. The glass ceiling is there when you have direct reporting line up that is less developed than the talent they direct. Make sure you don't end up under a boss that is less experienced, less academically educated, and less eager to risk transformational bold moves, than you are. It may otherwise become very painful. And it happens.

    Advice to Management

    Global talent circulation, moving people around he world for opportunities, is at a very green stage. You must invest in doing that better. Al your relocalized talent has seen staggered or stalled their careers. The plan of development seems to vanish once the person arrives to the new geography. You are moving assets around to trigger change, but when the catalytic arrives to new grounds it finds elements that are neutralizing or limiting immensely the potential effects hat were wanted in the first place. Look at the management you place these moving pieces under, ensure they understand the plan and you will see a lot more return on your investment.

    Pros

    The people are so caring. Despite being a fast-paced work environment, people are there to help you learn and grow as a person and employee.

    Cons

    It feels like people are okay with delivering less than outstanding results, which is a bit disappointing. Most of that is due to lack of manpower, which causes some of us to rush through some tasks.

    Advice to Management

    While the senior execs are open to chatting and do a decent job of staying visible, they still feel distant from everyone else. It would be great to get to know the higher ups better to be confident about what kind of people we have leading the company.
