    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

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

    Pros

    Flexible organization with a global presence. Exposure to many cultures via the employee base and customer base. Personally, i have a fantastic manager, but others are not so lucky.

    Cons

    Significant number of employees with more than 20+ years in the organization who are less than helpful in working with newer employees to become acclimated to their new environment.

    Advice to Management

    There are too many long-term employees in their roles for way too long. As a result, they are no long effective working with travel management companies, for example. Rather they are more focused on the goals of the travel management company and not Travelport.

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

    Pros

    Compensation is pretty decent. If you're lucky enough to be on a good team the work experience is positive. Work isn't too hard. In fact, that's probably why this company isn't doing better (the workforce is primarily composed of older employees who are very complacent and don't strive to improve things).

    Cons

    Health Care Premiums are high due to the unusually high percentage of older employees. From what I'm able to tell, the company makes no effort to train/groom good employees. Not many opportunities for advancement for younger employees.

    Pros

    Work life Balance, very friendly environment, the company demonstrates a type of concern for its employees. Business is advancing via Technology

    Cons

    tight with moving up the ladder/growth in certain areas and departments, easy place to become complacent

    please stop looking at only your bonuses. Employees need attention too.

    Pros

    Good work/life balance, very little politics, knowledgeable staff, very good CIO and CEO

    Cons

    Poor communications or direction from management, VP/SVP management is very outdated in their management philosophies and practices, business still operates in silos and is losing its centralized IT functions

    Advice to Management

    Incoming/newer executives need to mandate that VPs better communicate company's direction down to line workers. VPs need to be held more accountable for managing budgets effectively. Executive management needs to discourage micro-managing by VPs.
