    I have been working at Travel Leaders full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Has great people (at least in the departments i deal with) and work from home is not a problem. Work is based on projects and not by clock and time off is never a problem. Management tries to listen to any issue you may have and will work with you to get them resolved

    Cons

    As a remote employee moving up in the department isnt as easy

    Pros

    Good health and vacation benefits.

    Cons

    Once you have settled into your role long hours are the expectation. Never enough time to handle the workload.

    I have been working at Travel Leaders full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There is a lot of work to do. You will never be bored. Lot of opportunities to move around positions (pro), but not a lot of upward mobility (con).

    Cons

    Lack of communication. If roles change or a person is no longer working with the company, you are the last to know. It can cause a sense of unease and mistrust.

    Advice to Management

    Find ways to communicate to employees.

    I worked at Travel Leaders full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    - Flexibility with work/life balance
    - Travel perks
    - More opportunity to get involved in many projects and learn new, valuable skills compared to larger corporate companies

    Cons

    - Expect lower pay and little opportunity to increase salary.
    - Benefits not competitive. Expensive healthcare and dental compared to marketplace. No 401K match or tuition reimbursement.

    Advice to Management

    This is a multi-million dollar company who is growing - become more competitive, show your current employees you value them with compensation, competitive benefits, recognition and career progression. Do not put strong salary restrictions in place so that there is no room to grow. This is only going to encourage them to look elsewhere.

    Pros

    Flexible schedule and family oriented.

    Cons

    Unless you are in sales, less likely to be invested in.

    Advice to Management

    Invest in all of your staff, not just the sales team.

    "Worst Agency I've ever worked for in my many years of travel."

    Former Employee - Anonymous Employee

    Pros

    I was able to work from home. Other than working from home I can't say anything positive.

    Cons

    Constant snooping by owner and her daughter. You must purchase your own computer to work from home,yet the owners controls every aspect of the computer and your life. The daughter's behavior can be unpredictable at times.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to trust employees and stop feeling like you are the victims. The most important advice I could give is talk to others the way you would like to be spoken to.

    Pros

    Co-workers were nice to work with.

    Cons

    Owner is unprofessional, reactive, unorganized. Wants everyone to work for low wages, and few benefits.

    Advice to Management

    Let the professionals run the business.

    I worked at Travel Leaders full-time

    Pros

    Always looking to improve, advance technology offerings, large company but nimble to change, travel-industry. A lot of room for growth, personally and professionally if you look for it. A lot of team building, culture creating activities.

    Cons

    Your experience will vary largely on which branch/office you sit in; large changes aren't always thought through to execution level detail; a lot of cooks. No 401k match.

    Advice to Management

    Trust and involve your underlings more.

    I have been working at Travel Leaders (More than a year)

    Pros

    What can I say? It's a job.

    Cons

    Benefits are terrible. No 401k match. Insurance is expensive and not great coverage. Management seems like they dont have a clue most of the time. Most co-workers seem to lack general travel experience, knowledge and common sense.

    Advice to Management

    Hold employees accountable rather than let them pass off work to others. I've never seen so many people pass records off to others who work late. I dont need to to Sally's work plus mine. And your training needs to be more thorough. I know we all work from home, but there are still ways to have team building activities.
