    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!

    Pros

    Coworkers, Mgmt ignores you until they want to use you or fire you

    Cons

    HR is the worst thing about this company. Unless you're a lackey to a senior leader, don't bother to think about career growth

    Advice to Management

    Gordon watch your back. CIO is gonna take you out

    Pros

    Interesting industry, Opportunity to meet customers internal and external. Competitive pay scale.

    Cons

    A lot of churn from the top through middle management. HR issues are not addressed although there is a required Company Conduct and Ethics program. "older" workers aren't valued for their experience and knowledge. Sad as Travelport has historically been a wonderful place to work!

    Advice to Management

    Tough question! In my opinion, the decisions and direction of the company are from the executive level down, and he is building that "empire" from previous companies. There is a huge fear factor. First level management and their employees feel powerless, Even HR has gone through a total replacement. I don't have a great answer Action is required to break the barriers between the executive level and the employees, Break out groups? Lunch discussion sessions? The recent employee survey showed problems yet employees and first level management aren't hearing about any action plans, Used to have a group called "Technology One Team" - TOT - which facilitated communication between the executives and the employees. This group was dissolved when the last CIO "left" Rebuild these teams?

    I got to work developing new infrastructure projects.

    Too much turnover. Several employees and contractors have come and gone in the group I was in. The general culture does not favor contractors.
