    I have been working at Viad full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Remote employees were common rather than frowned upon which facilitated ongoing communication across the world. Management was realistic in expectations and the work was fun.

    Cons

    Company's IT department lost all upper management and the organization began a downward slide soon after.

    Positive Outlook

    Pros

    Very positive atmosphere and little politicking. People treat others with respect and there is a great team aspect. The Company walks the talk relative to being honest 100% of the time and is focused on doing things the right way. It's a great place to work!

    Cons

    I don't have much to say about downsides. I have worked at many companies over my career and this is at the top. There used to be a resistance to change, but with more people coming in with other outside experience and ideas, there is more openness and willingness to change.

    I worked at Viad full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Beautiful area. Great work environment. Safe and friendly work environment. Everyone who worked in my area was very nice and respected.

    Cons

    Scheduling was a strange but I enjoyed the extra work. Worked long hours but pay made it worth it. Room and board was provided for a very cheap deduction from wages. That environment could have been maintained better.

    Pros

    Nice building and nice offices

    Cons

    Too diversified in it's businesses. Not sure management knows which companies it runs to keep going and invest in. Make it a priority to do you due dilligence

    Advice to Management

    Do some internal review and and decide which businesses you want to be in to bring better value to the shareholders.

    I worked at Viad full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Its hard to write anything here.

    Cons

    The Viad company was running a lodge (denali backcountry lodge) in alaska under the name alaska park properties. When we were interviewed we were told we would be paid salary. When we (six of us all told the same thing) got the backwoods lodge in alaska at great personal cost, we were informed that we would in fact be being paid minimum wage by the hour and that if we did not like it we could leave. Furthermore, at the end of the season a large portion of the money that we were tipped on credit cards was unfairly withheld from us. Do yourself a favor and find a better company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Please do not lie to your staff.
