Pros

Diverse, Very LGBT friendly, Flexible work environment, and Great Benefits

Cons

Flawed employee evaluation system does not motivate.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Rethink your employee evaluation system. It is flawed, unfair, and does not help team morale, nor does it motivate employees to do better because the way the points are distributed throughout the teams and company.

    Pros

    strong working colleagues, the potential of OWW and work life balance are the only reasons i've stuck around. OWW has so much potential to be a great place if mgmt would let go of old, business school philosophies and practices. pay is pretty good, but nothing exceptional. benefits are competitive for a company it's size.work environment is good except when you need some privacy or quiet. this is a place for people inherently accountable for their work.

    Cons

    can't quite figure out who gets promoted and why -- seems like the talent usually is not promoted, rather the talkers. most managers are not capable, rather have strong underlings creating a sense of managerial accomplishment. learning and growth...you're on your own. administratively, place is a wreck. duplicate people, systems, etc...costs could be cut in half.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    time for something bold - many employees are wondering how much longer leaders have with the stock price down YOY for many years. focus on frequency such as larger corp clients with routine travelers rather than trying to build awesome vacation packages (that book slowly or decline in today's down economies).

    Pros

    Great people, excellent benefits, flexible, working from home was awesome!

    Cons

    Too many people at the top. Need for departments to work more closely to truly make things happen. There is no need to micro manage, numbers do not lie.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to find a way to get people working together from departments that need to work together.
    Consult the people in the field to ensure changes that are about to be made are the best thing for the employees and company.
