    I have been working at Travelport full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great work/life balance, fair pay, understanding managers, and great leadership. Terrific work environment and work from home ability.

    Interesting travel technology where you never face a lack of work or lack of enthusiasm to do the work as most of the work is directly driven by the industry.

    Cons

    As in every large successful company, change is frequent and can hurt. Sometime people you worked with for many years may get affected by a lay-off, but then can be rehired somewhere else within the company....

    Advice to Management

    Keep striving for better!

    I have been working at Travelport full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I've spent my career at various companies - big and small - and Travelport is among the better of them. Benefits are on par or better than those I've had. The company offers E-learning, outings, a great recognition program and more. Communication from the top is good and apparently, unless you land in a disfunctional department, managent is is supportive and clear. My work from home ability will keep me here for a while (not open to everyone). I love the international nature of the company.

    Cons

    The company is working with older technology platforms and is trying to keep up. Some silos exist. It's a little hard to find technical support at times.

    Advice to Management

    Keep communicating. Keep innovating. Have an open mind when looking to new markets in the future.

    Pros

    Great company culture, good benefits, and there are some opportunities to work in other roles within the company

    Cons

    Pay is below average and workload is high, which can be hard on morale and disrupts having a good work/life balance.

    Advice to Management

    You have a lot of dedicated employees and salary is not always on par with workload or average salary for the position.

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

    Pros

    The people here for the most part are helpful.

    Cons

    Pay, ability to advance, CEO, upper management, training, resistance to talking to employees directly (face to face). Virtual employees are forgotten. Company feels stale.

    Advice to Management

    Get the old guard out. CEO and some in upper management have been here way too long. Need fresh eyes and fresh ideas. Too much moving of depts around and turn over of management.

    Great colleagues, good place to grow careers, good industry with complex challenges, good leadership, actively driving the change needed to grow

    Pros

    Location, flexible schedule, covered parking, pieces of benefits plan, global interaction, never bored, finally improving technology we work with, starting programs to give back to the community

    Cons

    Pay, cliques, workload, expect 24/7 availability, bullying is rampant. Lots of drama and finger-pointing when things go wrong. Burnout is common

    Advice to Management

    You've hired a number of people to lead who stalled out at successful companies and threw them all in a blender. The results are a big mess. Maybe start bringing in people who are skilled business leaders that employees will trust and want to follow.
