    I worked at Vantage Deluxe World Travel full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    nice coworkers, fun products, decent benefits

    Cons

    Company is stuck in old ways of doing things like they did 35 years ago when it comes to reviewing staff (oh, no reviews at all) and developing them

    Advice to Management

    Just because it works for 35 years, doesn't mean doing it a different way won't be better.

    Pros

    Boston location, work from home opportunity

    Cons

    The company needs to make sure the job postings (aka linkedin or other) have the correct salaries posted. You don't hire someone and they are assuming that the salary/commission under which they applied is now very different when you get your offer letter! The excuse was, "that was the customer service position" (which I have never seen posted) You start your training in the office...but never receive paperwork on your...

    Advice to Management

    When a training class is being conducted with new employees and the CEO of the company who we have never met walks into the training room to say hello and make a comment to the instructor, what should normally happen? The CEO would want to meet everyone and the instructor would "introduce him" and the CEO would want to know who his new employees are yes? Instead what happened.... after he left... "Oh... that was the...

    I have been working at Vantage Deluxe World Travel full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    There seems to be the trend with Ex-Vantage employees, that the only way to get their point across is to post a nasty review when they FINALLY get out. I am under the impression that no one is forced to work here… so if you are having a negative experience at any company, I would urge you to get out. No job is worth your mental health. Is Vantage a difficult place to work? It can be, yes. In fact, it is the most difficult...

    Cons

    Do you often speak out of turn and try to ‘BS’ your way through things? Uh oh. This is where you will fall into issues in this workplace. The people who are still here, have likely been here for years. They will see right through this type of behavior. Those people tend to fail and write negative reviews on their way out. Are there managers here who you will TOTALLY butt heads with and disagree with? YES. But I would...

    Pros

    Working as a designer at Vantage is challenging, yet a good place to learn all about the building blocks of both print & digital design. Creating layouts, image manipulation, typographic layouts, gif & vector creation are all elements that are needed daily. The responsibilities of meeting hard deadlines as well as incorporating specific offer messaging require creativity, flexibility, and organization, which...

    Vantage is an older company so the classic more templated design is used to fit the older customer demographic

    I worked at Vantage Deluxe World Travel full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    While saying anything positive about this disgusting organization makes my stomach churn, the positives of this organization should be pointed out in the interest of objectivity. The location is excellent. Conveniently located outside North Station, giving you the ability to work here if you are near any train system. There are bountiful choices for lunch within walking distance. The building is also near TD Garden,...

    To save considering candidates the time, I would strongly advise you do not work at Vantage if you answer yes to any of the following questions: "Are you a Woman?" If so, do not work at Vantage. You will be demeaned, discriminated against, and treated like a subclass compared to your male counterparts. The owner of the company is by far the biggest perpetrator, and the executive team makes no attempt to stop him as...

    Advice to Management

    There is no advice that can be given to management as long as Hank Lewis is in charge of this company. Anybody that will listen to advice has no power to change the corporate culture. The only person that has the power to change the culture will not listen. The fact that employees were afraid to fill out the "anonymous" climate survey in fear of being terminated should tell you enough that it's time for a culture shift....

    Pros

    close to the T, lunches brought in, nice people, gym in basement, Canal street is becoming less of an opioid den.

    Cons

    The CEO has been running this company into the ground for years. He bullies all employees. He forces employees to write positive reviews. Do not consider any of the positive reviews to be true. He is drunk most of the time. For a company where marketing is the most critical function, it is so outdated one could laugh. And, it's all his doing. Discounting is the only way he can fill the trips. so, profits are near...

    This is a fast-paced, dynamic work environment that offers something new every day, much like travel. I'm a passionate traveler and I've learned so much from working here, both in terms of travel and how a large, global company functions. There are lots of opportunities for travel, which is a great perk. Nice people, fun personalities, and some difficult ones, too, but what workplace doesn't have those? You definitely...
