    Pros

    Really enjoyed working at the TUI Travel, great people and great culture. Lots of out of work events ans staff trips abroad. Spot on work/life balance. Amazing perks if you like travelling

    Cons

    There is a chance to progress only if you'd go to a different department. Hard to progress within the same department unless someone leaves

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep doing what you're doing

    Hr processes can take time, generally a number in regards to hr team but Region mamagers make up for this.
    Time away from home

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work but maybe look at employing more staff in hr / placements as they always seem to be stretched too much

    Pros

    they do focus on staff development and provide courses such as insights which was a great tool and experience. There is plenty of opportunities and you can never get bored (would not get the chance to). Fast paced yet exciting company to work for.

    Cons

    Balancing work and life is difficult due to the pressures of working within such a driven company. Remember to focus on you and if you focus on yourself and your own strengths everyone including the company will benefit.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Try and involve the employee in the appraisal process and spend more time ensuring staff are OK rather than just assuming....

    Bullies

    I worked at TUI Travel

    Pros

    All positives were completely and utterly crushed......

    Cons

    Line managers bully their staff as they too are bullied. So you cannot approach anyone for help to prevent this as those above rule in a similar way.
    Targets reached so they find something else to shout about. Humiliating, upsetting, destroying, disaster of an experience.
    I quit a good job to join Tui and feel gutted I was duped from day one. False promises of what's on the horizon.
    Absolutely NO employee care whatsoever.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you wish to keep staff and save on training costs. Treat them as human beings. Value their work, educate if they fail. Praise often..

    Mystery shoppers are probably one of the hardest things to deal with as they really stress you out and you feel unnatural serving when knowing they are going to come.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Training was great when I started and my team were fabulous. An education wouldn't go a miss as I know it really improves product knowledge.
