    Pros

    Great Training programme, depending on what time of year you start

    Cons

    The company is well organised, however due to it's upmarket status a huge amount of intricacy goes into the role and takes some time getting used to. Leading up to their busy months they are very pushed for deadlines leaving staff under a great deal of pressure. The main issue was there was not enough staff to spread the work load and therefore issues arose.

    Interesting & Exciting Company

    Pros

    The people who work at A&K are all very passionate about travel and bring that excitement to their jobs. The benefits are great especially if you can go on an A&K trip. The fun committee does a lot of events in the office to make things more relaxed. Office space was renovated pretty recently so it looks nice.

    Cons

    Lots and lots and lots and lots of bureaucracy. Even the smallest of decisions need to be approved through your department VP or even the President. Kind of old school in that they don't have a very good work from home program.

    Ideal Job at a Great Company

    Pros

    - The management team is very supportive and hands-on - The job entails something that I'm passionate about and helping people secure their travel plans is something that I enjoy doing. - Great work/life balance and great benefits (healthcare, retirement, as well as some travel discounts) - Training process was very informative and interesting. There were different types of training so it did not get repetitive. - Opportunity for growth

    Cons

    - The training process is pretty long, but I felt it was a good amount of time to fully understand the job requirements and skills needed.
