International Account Manager (Former Employee) says

"The day was structured to ensure that all services were coordinated so clients were able to access their services for themself and their dependents upon arrival to the country of relocation. My interaction was limited to emails and I had very little interaction with the two others account managers who were located in different regions of the country. The hardest of the job was poor compensation and limited benefits. The most enjoyable part was the interaction with 50+ nationality and 30+ relocation center and the opportunity to speak several languages.The international aspect of the jobCompensation not in line with the work and no promotional opportunities"

International Account Manager (Former Employee) says

"My work to managed language services for the Benesse Corp, allowed me to work with over 52 countries and built relationships with our corporate representatives in a multicultural and linguistic world. I was able to work from home part of the time , so I could reach my partners in different parts of the globe during their working hours. The hardest part of the job was a compensation not in line with the job and its requirements, with no significant increases in salaries. I enjoyed most my overseas colleagues and the friendship I was able to build while working.Multicultural, multilingual and independenceLow compensation and benefits"

Annemarie Bell says

"I paid Jacada $20K for trip to Scandinavia that was supposed to take place in June. They kept pushing me to postpone and to cancel and never paid a dime to any suppliers, then a month of silence/no calls or emails answered, then the announcement of bankruptcy. Alex, the CEO of Jacada, calls me to say he's sorry and will see what he can do, but basically says not much. He never calls back. They floated so much money and basically lied to us. Awful, just awful."

"I would like to know why Jacada Travel still has a Web site? Why doesn’t the Website refer individuals to Wilderness Travel indicating that Jacada Travel has closed its door? We should not trust Wilderness Travel until our deposits have been returned. Trust us , in order for us, to trust you. RETURN OUR MONEY! Sherry in PA."

Faye Ramos says

"Has anyone been contacted already? Jacada said that all the money is gone and all I can do is try with wilderness safaris."

Jackie Wyatt says

"Tried emailing and calling multiple times over two months and no answer. I’m assuming they are bankrupt. I paid a little over $10k deposit and was receiving high communication until that was paid. This is extremely unprofessional and I will be filing a dispute and report. Do not book with them!!!!"
