    I have been working at G Adventures full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    I have worked at the company for less than a year, and it has been a breath of fresh air and rollercoaster ride (in the best way possible) since day 1. The company culture, its core values, the opportunity for growth and the opportunity to work with amazing people towards changing the way and reason people travel, is the best feeling in the world. We really are changing people's lives through travel. I couldn't...

    Pros

    Amazing company, culture, and core values. Working on the phones is not always the most glamorous job, but it is far from what you'd expect to find when you hear the words "call centre." We are all passionate and purpose-driven people, working together, and it shows.

    Cons

    None major to be honest!

    I have been working at G Adventures full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    It's a cool office with a great culture. The people doing the work are incredible. They're talented, intelligent and very welcoming. There are cute perks like snack-cart on Mondays, free popcorn & ice cream. There's even "beer o'clock" at 4 on Fridays! It's a relatively lateral organization where you have the opportunity to learn a lot and very quickly. You can chum around with Directors and VPs and get a good...

    Cons

    Sadly, cool offices with great culture don't pay the bills. Entry level staff are egregiously underpaid, and managers aren't paid much better. Resources are scarce, but the expectations and responsibilities are off the charts. New people are expected to take on a lot very quickly with minimal training. Nothing is documented and every process detail is stored in the minds of a couple people who have been here for years,...

    Advice to Management

    As the organization continues to grow and change, there needs to be focus on doing a few things really well, instead of a lot of things sort of ok. We are building the plane as we're flying it, so to speak. Stop trying to move so fast and cultivate what you've already built. Pay close attention to the people who already work for you. There are hidden gems and diamonds in the rough, people that deserve promotions and...
