    I worked at Points International full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    Great and understanding management, no micro-management. Laid back work place. We get beer carts on Friday, you get to enjoy it with great co-workers. Good bonus incentives and benefits. Plenty of rooms to grow

    Cons

    More difficult to impose changes due to the nature of the business

    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Points International full-time

    Pros

    Great people, lots of social events going on, beer/snack cart, respect for each other even across levels within the organization

    Cons

    The fluffy stuff isn't enough to make a great place to work, there should be more structured programs from HR to motivate, retain and develop employees. The HR department has had 100% voluntary turnover at least 3 times in the last 4 years and executives don't seem to have an issue with that or do anything about it. Maybe it's time for a change in that area, it could really take the company to the next level.

    Pros

    Great people and office, company does not nickle and dime employees. Treats every department with respect and consistent benefits.

    Cons

    Very top heavy, makes for confusing leadership structure but progress is being made on this front.

    Pros

    The accolades and awards speak for themselves: Points is a great place to be, to work and to create. Most people internalize and live the values of the company and try to provide innovative solutions with a smart and hard work approach A lot of loyalty industry veterans offer their insights and strategy so that you can learn not only in your individual profession, but overall. With loyalty becoming a bigger driver...

    Cons

    - Compensation isn't _bad_, but it's not at par with the ambitious plans for growth and talent acquisition - Growth opportunities and promos mostly respond to people leaving rather than actual personal growth or even business need - High rotation as of late, understandable (I guess) given the competitive local and industry market - A bit of an identity crisis as to the actual way to execute against the company's mission....

    Advice to Management

    Invest. But invest in the things that matter. Tech, tech savvy people, without stopping the good things that you're already doing. The opportunities ahead are huge, please don't let them slip. Keep being awesome and keeping everyone in the loop (assuming we all behave and keep things confidential). Few things are as exciting as knowing what other folks are up to and how can we all help one another.

    Pros

    Great culture, people really care about each other. Less so in winter, but lots of social activities in summer (mostly sponsored). Great benefits.

    Cons

    It's a public company, so that comes with some of the annoyances of working in a public company.
