    Pros

    The best part of working at Travelocity was the people! Company values and work/life balance was also a pro. Customer and partner relations were a key focus and our partners really enjoyed working with their Travelocity reps.

    Cons

    As remote positions rarely became available (talent retention in our department was very strong) promotion and growth opportunities were limited, unless you were based in Southlake or willing to relocate.

    Friendly, smart people, and interesting work.

  4. "Great Experience"

    Pros

    Lots of great minds. The company is going through many changes but the brand is consistent. Positive work environment

    Cons

    Top down management style. Although management is very accessible and it seems that they are willing to listen and be helpful.

    Don't expect salary increases. Sabre seems more secure at times but in reality may be more volatile.

    Advice to Management

    Keep great talent. Flatten.the management style? It's 2014

    Pros

    Generally good people to work with. Benefits from Sabre where great. Casual and very flexible with schedules and working from home.

    Cons

    Legacy systems, that are a maintenance nightmare. The worst part is the current instability with Expedia and Orbitz acquisitions. Developers should be wary.

    Advice to Management

    Be more open with employees. It's very clear that partnerships and sell-offs where in the works for a long time and the mass exodus of VP's implies they knew early on.

    Pros

    An amazing and talented group of people to work with. Strong family atmosphere. Reasonably priced cafeteria with a variety of food choices Excellent work/life balance. Good benefits. Good salaries but contingent on your role.

    Rapidly loss recognition and status in the market place resulting in enormous loss of revenue. Very little advertising done to promote brand and the Gnome became non-existent. Social media efforts were poor. Out of touch with new technology.

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

    Pros

    There is a great team atmosphere at the San Antonio call center and good leadership. Pay is fair for the work done.

    Cons

    For an internet company their technology was horrible! If they fixed one thing 3 other programs would go down. Too frustrating for employees. Very top leadership had no idea what the call center teams did or cared to find out.

    Advice to Management

    Hire local IT people who know and understand technology, invest in training. .

    Pros

    Great work-life balance, nice work environment, flexible work-from-home policy

    Cons

    Pay is below market levels, company is trying to climb out from under a tremendous amount of technical debt, selling off almost all of the business, and effectively becoming nothing more than a marketing company with a well-known brand. Little appreciation from management for the hard work of the individual contributors.

    Advice to Management

    Focus! Identify ROI before embarking on projects. Don't spend millions of dollars without a contract with the client.
