    Luxury Travel, but employees are not respected

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) El Segundo, CA

    ProsYou're constantly learning about new destinations for travel. Once in a while you can take advantage of a good travel deal.

    ConsSenior management does not support or provide enough resources to allow employees to do a great job. Staff is overloaded and overworked, resulting in low morale.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTreat your regular employees better; they are the ones making memorable trips happen for employees. Treat employees with respect and compensate them appropriately.

    Specialist Holidays Group, part of TUI Travel - Great career development opportunity but soul destroying in many ways.

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) London, England (UK)

    ProsHave been able to advance quickly in the company mainly due to constant mergers, restructures and 'synergy /streamlining'.

    ConsA boys club. And you have to be darn good to get anywhere with out being invited into the club.

    Advice to Senior ManagementTry keeping the great, experienced and driven people that make a difference and drive the company forward as opposed to the people that can talk the talk but do nothing of value.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

    Classic example of a big company that can't get out of its own way

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Crawley, West Sussex, South East England, England (UK)

    Prosthe travel industry overall is interesting and TUI is the market leader in Europe. Get to meet and work with interesting and colourful people from around the world.

    ConsVery old school, hierarchy system. Hyper political environment that makes for many miserable days of dealing with utter nonsense. A classic case of working in a big corporate machine and feeling like a "number", rather than a person.

    Advice to Senior ManagementInspire your team with a vision and truly empower and incent the people you have to make a real difference in the company. You'll be amazed at what they will accomplish.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Tui Travel

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Luton, East of England, England (UK)

    ProsSpacious and modern working environment.

    ConsA bemoth of a company too big to run efficiently. Waste is rife and governance and controls severly lacking for a FTSE100. Change takes forever and in many areas there is no apetite for it.
