    I worked at TravelBird full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    A great place to kickstart your career in the travel industry, no previous experience in the sector required, quite a lot of freedom to execute your job.

    Cons

    Poor, young unexperienced management and overall lack of knowledge in the field. We missed some experienced tourism professionals to design a company strategy based on industry data and trends and create some strategic partnerships.
