    Ich habe weniger als ein Jahr bei Switchfly als Vollzeit gearbeitet

    Pros

    I've met some awesome people there, though not everyone. Good benefits. Free lunches. Good location.

    Kontras

    Complete amateurish, unrealistic and unpractical attitude to expect people to hit the ground running when you have a platform that admitedly has zero documentation, lots of bandaids, no training, and very limited ability to ask for help. Given these circumstances, it is offensive and complete bs to keep repeating the cliche "we expect all our employees to hit the ground running". In other words, they have no idea what...

    Pros

    Great medical benefits, Friday lunches and snacks

    Kontras

    - There are roughly 5 useful people left at the company and everyone aside from management knows it - Management thinks everyone are cogs in a machine and replaceable but the platform is complex with no documentation and most of the people who knew how it worked are gone - Pay is far below competition - No support, many lies, no transparency - "WAD" is used so often its funny - Everyone just passes work on and doesn't...

    Ich habe für mehr als ein Jahr bei Switchfly gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    Amazing people and very competitive health benefits. Flexibility in working from home. New leadership.

    Kontras

    Had I written this review before the recent changes it would echo the other past reviews. The leadership prior to the recent changes was horrible. This created a work culture that did not represent the great people that work at Switchfly. Since the change, it is an entirely different company. While it is still going through a transformation that has it own challenges, it was very difficult to leave even when an amazing...

    Continue taking the right steps for transformation. There is a ton of opportunity for Switchfly to become dominant in the marketplace and establish itself as a transformative powerhouse within travel technology.

    Not a startup any more, but still being weaned off venture capital.

    Ich habe für mehr als ein Jahr bei Switchfly gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    Health benefits are well supplemented by the company. Pay is competitive for this industry. They preach good values but operationally it doesnt happen

    Kontras

    Horrible management of people. Lack of defined processes, or lots of churn attempting to change processes. Lack of strategy and vision from executive leadership. No accountability. No training. Embarrassing treatment of customers. Lack of good project management. Future uncertain. Really high expectations for product to know everything about everything.

    Rat an das Management

    Create functional product areas so you can at least gain some productivity over time.

    Ich habe für mehr als 5 Jahre bei Switchfly gearbeitet (Vollzeit)

    Pros

    Location in SF is nice, lots of snacks, management meetings (although they lack coherence)

    Kontras

    This is a very small company, yet remarkably hierarchical. If you’re not part of the inner circle, it’s almost impossible to get your job done. Management is lousy in virtually every part of the company, and there is a total lack of leadership from the CEO down. It’s a totally depressing work environment, pushing out a heavily flawed product.

    Rat an das Management

    Start trusting those you hire, and stop promoting minimally qualified people.

    Thank you for taking the time to post a review and I am sorry you had such a negative employment experience! There is no doubt Switchfly has had some rocky times and has gone through so much change. It looks like you may have left just before new leadership and funding took place ...

    Pros

    Individual employees, the only staff who are powering this company, care about each other Can be interesting to learn about inner workings of the travel industry

    Kontras

    The toxic work environment is Not Normal and cannot be attributed to growing pains or careless, lazy employees (which the CEO blames). The basic underlying issues for toxicity have been around for years, and continue to be rejected by leadership. Tenured employees remain to support their peers and career’s work—they’d like keep the product & technology they’ve dedicated a good part of their careers to intact. Their...

    Rat an das Management

    Stop invalidating the negative feedback (and reviews) and work with it to be better. It is not out of thin air, and these reviews are too specific and honest to be made up. You can claim Fake News all you want, but one fact stands: it starts from the top. Stop encouraging employees to write positive reviews, there is no material for them Replace the CEO

      Pros

      Friendly employees, compensation seems to be competitive but no 401k match, no set DTO policy and because you're so busy there's no good time to take vacation.

      Kontras

      Lack of training, lack of vision, expectations way out of whack with reality, everyone works 50-60 hours a week which is the expected standard, no work life-balance, horrible leadership. worst place I have worked in my 30+ year career if that tells you anything. Lots of playing favorites, no privacy
