Almost any travel tech company these days is looking to recruit the best would-be employees, especially if they are tech professionals.
United or Continental? If you had to repaint a bunch of airlines and airport hangars, which brand would you pick if the two airlines become one?
You’ve heard of user-generated content? Well, Glassdoor.com tapped into employee-generated content — i.e. the opinions of the rank-and-file — and picked Southwest Airlines as #1 in its Top 50 Best Places to Work, 2010, in the USA.
Although the Glassdoor board includes a quartet of former or current travel industry heavyweights, all with Expedia pedigrees, the fact that a travel company, an airline, topped the list is a coincidence because this ranking is based on employee sentiment from each of the corporations being scrutinized.
So, Southwest Airlines topped the list, and other travel companies in the top 50 included Continental Airlines at #8 and, just squeaking in, Marriott Hotels at #50.
