    Pros

    Very supportive, small work place that felt like a family. The best benefit was how flexible everyone was if you needed time off. Travel perks were ok, not as great as in years past., but that is mainly because of the industry. Great hotel discounts with an IATA membership.

    Cons

    Travel agencies are becoming a thing of the past, so I wouldn't recommend becoming one if you want to make it a career. Uniglobe was very small, so it was hard to compete with the bigger agencies, or online providers. The benefits were minimal, no dental or 401K plan.

    Advice to Management

    Provide more benefits for employees

    Pay for industry is pretty good
    Can be fun depending on your team
    Lots of good long-term employees

    Lots of changes, new owners, different policies
    Business down and there were layoffs but only ever agents let go
    Has lost its family feel, big company now

    Advice to Management

    Spend more time with the employees who deal with customers every day
    Expectations aren't always reasonable

    Pros

    Great people to work with, family feel. Good opportunity to gain work experience.

    Cons

    Poor management, Ignore issues and reward poor behaviour. Long hours, nothing for overtime, no bonuses, no raises, no growth.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees concerns, reward strong performers and show appreciation for hard word. Get rid of rewarding based on who people are friends with.

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

    Pros

    The reason why i love to work here is that I have learnt many things and put in my experience which helped the organization to develop and grow

    Cons

    The only con is that they shuffle the team without having experience of it and expect a lot

    Advice to Management

    They should ask the employee before changing the department.

    Pros

    Lovely owners and that combined with wider Uniglobe community gave a good family feel. Great people, good investment in technology. Fairly autonomous working environment

    Cons

    Pay not great, apparent verbal appreciation didn't translate into suitable remuneration. Decisions took too long to be made and there was no continuity to management practices between departments. Favouritism evident with both poor and good performance being rewarded randomly.

    Advice to Management

    Recognise high performers and loyal employees better and adjust remuneration packages to fall into line with other companies. Improve employee development/mentoring/coaching

    Pros

    Company appeared to have a great culture overall, more so in the corporate department. Pay was descent with opportunity to earn more, encouraged work life balance..discouraged working OT .

    Cons

    Lack of Management Very negative colleagues.-been in industry to long and not open to change and innovative/creative forward thinking. Was very heard to remain positive and be creative to bring in business when no one wanted to and just expects things to be like they used to be in industry . Its changed. its pretty bad when clients notice and say something.Lots of backstabbing and gossiping.

    Advice to Management

    Have a Manager. A manager that works in another city managing all offices is not an office manager but an area leader. There lacked presence and office culture and morale was aweful due to an office of negativity and a lack of positive attitude towards change and innovation. I feel this is due to a lack of presence and management to actually know what is going on. Implementing teamwork and a creating growth mindset would have improved sales. Manage people vs money and watch the growth happen.
