    Pros

    Lots to learn about tech and travel. Good benefits. Plenty of opportunities if In less standardised role

    Very American, politics is king. Fast tracks careers of people who are bubbly and "yellow" personalities at cost of quieter workers

    Advice to Management

    Try harder to cultivate a culture which rewards strong work ethic and not be seduced by those playing 'the game'. Encourage managers to be more open and transparent without creating "yellow"personality cults

    Pros

    Company Culture comes from the top, so not dependant on the team you work in.
    Fast paced, lots of room to grow and move.

    Cons

    High school politics applies at times. Increases are very very low. Bonuses are laughable. You are trading off remuneration for work life balance / good team culture.

    "Market Associate role"

    Approves of CEO

    Pros

    - Office location and design
    - Standing up desks for everyone
    - Great support team
    - Benefits
    - L&D courses
    - Good stepping stone into industry as you make connections with many hotels
    - Colleagues
    - Standardised global way of doing things so you can talk to someone on the other side of the world and they'd know your exact problem

    Cons

    - Not much diversity in the job role so you’ll get bored quickly. You're pretty much stuck doing rate parity checks every day and not much else.
    - Micro managed having weekly meetings on your numbers and why you're not hitting them. You had to cc in a Market Manager in every email you sent.
    - The role is not very autonomous – not able to think for yourself, just do as you’re told.
    - Director is not a very good leader - he has claimed a meeting room as his own office in an open plan floor, ‘leading’ his team from there.
    - Overall culture favours outgoing and outspoken individuals. Takes them longer to recognise talent in quieter and analytical types.
    - Lots of favouritism and if you're not one of the favourites, then your chances of moving up the ladder or getting recognised will not come.

    Advice to Management

    Treat blues and greens equally to reds and yellows.
    Onboarding an MA is really expensive - If you really want to reduce turnover of MAs, diversify the role and recognise them as people, not just on their ability to do BML.
