    Advice to Management

    Think about the message you are delivering and try to build an empathic connection with the audience you are addressing. Consider the terminology you are using and how statements may be interpreted.

    I worked at Cartus full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Decent starter wage, nice office

    Cons

    No support from management. You can tell 90% of IAC’s hate their job. Either young kids getting experience, or people too settled in and afraid to leave. Lots of pressure, no support. It seems like most people don’t last a year.

    Advice to Management

    Support your team, LISTEN! Don’t bow down to the clients. Don’t make evaluations set us up to fail.
