I have been working at Travelport full-time for more than 3 years
The Dublin office is viewed very positively in Travelport and we are able to attract good people with potential. The office itself is very nice, and the site operations people do an amazing job. It’s... a pleasure working there. Since the company was bought a lot of the senior leaders who were just hanging around for a payoff have left, which is great. There is an emerging sense of purpose and direction - though see cons. People are friendly, supportive and considerate. I can’t think of any a******s who work in the Dublin office.
Change bring uncertainty, but it’s not unique in Travelport. The company has some difficult choices - I hope they choose to take swift, short term pain and risk over “business as usual” because the... latter means stagnation. Smart people will leave. Agile is new to the org outside Dublin and they need to hire more pragmatic and experienced agile coaches across the globe and less people with theoretical book smarts who talk mumbo jumbo - we have had a few of them over the years.
Advice to Management
Take risks with our business, and support risk taking. Recognise people and good parts of our culture and work to recognise and amplify that.

The best thing about Version 1 is the people. There's a start-up vibe to some parts of the business where people are pulling in the same direction, innovating and building cloud-native stuff. It can... be intense, but when you're working in a team all trying to achieve the same goal, you don't mind. It's never boring. Compensation's competitive. Company's very stable despite coronavirus.
Some good people have left - but they're usually moving up the career ladder and taking positions with huge companies like Google & Microsoft. It can be hard to keep people when they come... knocking. Some people struggle with the pace & pressure - good people who can't keep up / manage their time. It's unfortunate, but just the nature of consultancy.
Advice to Management
Figure out how to deliver the Summer BBQ / Xmas party remotely :) A clearer path for senior tech people would probably help us keep the best people. There's lots of talent in the ranks so we need... to find a way to hold onto them.
