    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at BCD Travel full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Remote working enabled - a wide array of cloud solutions available to work remotely full time and collaborate with colleagues , acceptable salary.... not great, but acceptable.

    Cons

    The people running the show are the people who have been with the company for 20+ years, blinded by nostalgia and the old way of working, “if it ain’t broke don’t fix it” and “if it costs money, don’t bother with it” One of the biggest problems with this company is that it values Travel industry experience over all other industries... BCD has major technology initiatives on the cards and the people who are making the decisions are those with Travel backgrounds and those who make the highest amount of money , rather than the subject matter experts in those particular technology areas. Sacrificing award winning comprehensive applications to support a piece of software that isn’t built to operate the way BCD are forcing it to. All in the name of cost saving and because a manager with no technology or project management experience said so... The communication is poorly managed and the voices that matter do not get heard, unless you are a senior manager or above, your voice pretty much doesn’t matter or it’s drowned out by some loud mouth manager who hasn’t got a clue.... there needs to be a clear out from the top down, stop chopping the heads of your lower level/ potentially younger staff members, they are the technically minded individuals that shape your products and future Stop investing so much in the ones that have been in the company too long... their ideas are mostly absent and dated and are wreaking chaos on modern process and technology enhancements ... not only travel experience matters Would not recommend if you have a passion for innovation, I would recommend to those who have lost ambition and just want a job to chug along with until you eventually pop your clogs
