      Pros

      Very well organized with their accounts for the most part, and my management team was great. I had the privilege of working with the Siemens account, which are very pleasant clients to work with. Pay is above average, training was provided with a very thorough introduction to the travel industry. My account managers, senior staff and leads took it from there and were always extremely helpful and patient, as there was a lot to learn, especially with the GDS software Sabre. We had two weeks PTO, an additional week of sick time, and we could take another week off by "purchasing" it ahead of time. Work life balance was good and there are work from home opportunities for those who have been at one account for a year. (things might have changed with COVID-19 in that regard though) Asking for time off was automated with a system and easy to do. Even when the company was forced to furlough and eventually let people go they covered our health insurance as long as possible. I ended up taking severance. I wish I still worked there. Maybe I will be back one day..

      Cons

      Call monitoring standards were very high. Benefits are ok but not amazing. The health care benefits could be better. Occasional upset or unreasonable customer could make things difficult. Not a "recession proof" job as now I am out of work. Travel industry is doing very poorly at the time of writing this.
