Senior VIP Travel Counselor (Former Employee) – Sacramento, CA – May 21, 2016
Employees are but a number. Management teams are a good ol' girl groups that are absolutely power hungry. They portend to know the day-to-day business but have no clue and don't ask for input. If input given, they pacify briefly or "get rid" of those who challenge the system. It's like a bad "Stepford" organization. Much brainwashing going on in the higher ranks.
I worked for CWT for 4 years and I can say that I absolutely loved it. The team that I was a part of was great to work with and being just above entry level, my manager put me in a position to succeed from day one. The department I was in always made it a point to do things outside of work for team building which created a fun work atmosphere seeing colleagues outside of "work mode".
Although I did notice other sub-departments were unhappy as they worked a lot of overtime and didn't have the proper staff or resources to complete their job. That is just me looking and observing. Also there was a period of turn over in senior leadership and the direction was unknown for almost a year but when I left there was new leadership put in place that I believe had the right plan for success.
Carlson Wagonlit Travel is a wonderful place to work.

CWT is a wonderful company to work for. They are very considerate of their employees and strive to provide the best services to the client. My only reason for considering the leave is honestly that I'm ready to move on to new opportunities.

Nice place to work! Enjoyed building awesome relationships with my client's and Travel arranger's! My co worker's were so awesome! I learned to have more patience with people.The job was easy but got boring after awhile! I did not like some of the politic's in the office. The most enjoyable part of the job was how we all got along and worked together as a team!

A typical work day at Carlson Wagonlit Travel is very busy a lot to accomplish and to learn, Co-Workers are very helpful and professional, the hardest part of the job is when the system is down and the Clients need to have their reservations done, the most enjoyable part of the job is when all your work for the day is completed and the Clients are happy.
Job well done, and we receive compliments from the Company
slow periods and we have to take leave without pay
