Account Manager (Current Employee) – Chicago, IL – November 5, 2016
Egencia is a fast paced ever changing TMC. Lots of new initiatives are being implemented to make it a global platform.
I have learned a ton working for this company. We analyze our customers numbers and present quarterly and annual business reviews. Strategizing with clients in order to optimize their travel spend is a key focus.
Management varies depending on the team. Some are better than others like most companies.
My coworkers are what gets me up and excited to go into the office.
The hardest part of the Job is proving yourself to senior leadership that is all based in Seattle. The account management teams in Seattle are able to get face time with upper management where as the teams in Chicago have very little opportunity.
Work from home, health insurance, travel reimbursement, health and wellness reimbursment
Limited growth opportunity, pay is less than competing companies in the area
Very Professional, caring and you learn new things everyday
VIP Travel Consultant (Current Employee) – Las Vegas, NV – January 6, 2017
At a typical day at work you take multiple calls, work multiple emails and follow up with the clients on their up coming travel. I learn something everyday for the past 8 years. Management is amazing. My colleagues are always there for me. I enjoy very much working for Egencia.

Growth is the name of the game at Egencia. Keeping as many accounts on board as possible, while generating many more. It is a fast growing Travel Management Company with an exceptional product. Challenges are how to come to market in a syncronized way. Seems Egencia leads with product and is having a bit of an identity crisis on the sales side. The comp plan is questionable and finance and sales operations have more to say about it than sales management. Salespeople have been happier than they are now as the result of it. When this place is clicking its an awesome place though and the product is great.
Most people who work here are truly kind and considerate people who value fun and life. Its enjoyable to collaborate with them on difficult accounts and see them thrive.
I've learned that when product and sales message are aligned, this company can be on a roll. When distractions are abound, sales gets a tough go at things due to the tech-centric nature of the org. There is truly a real cross section of needs going on here which have their good days and bad.
Work/life balance, free sodas and coffee all the time, flexible scheduling.
