    I have been working at Flight Centre full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Culture is really personable, work hard play hard which suits many but not all. The span of control is relatively flat but regardless of this, no member of the business is off limits to discuss any aspect of company performance/growth/strategy. The senior management are always upbeat and positive about the future and happy to discuss in great detail the good, bad and ugly - very refreshing.

    Customer focus is something that has been part of discussions for years but it really is becoming front and centre of everything we do and plan now.

    Digital initiatives were something Flight Centre didn't believe in up until a few years ago, but now, we're seeing a massive change and willingness to invest meaning the next 4 - 5 years are going to be an exciting experience as a digital transformation occurs internally and externally.

    Team members who are performing well are recognised for their success and pushed into new more challenging roles where available. Internal recruitment is the preference so opportunities are publicised internally to entice existing talent.

    Managers are empowered to deliver on high level strategy as they know best - micro-management is not a part of this companies vernacular - too little time to do that!

    Cons

    FCTG has a strong propensity to change without notice and in quite a frequent fashion. Changes implemented can be made and pushed through before the correct processes and infrastructure are in place meaning frustration is high. Change management is not a term known to this company!

    Bureaucracy can really drag FCTG down - although one of the companies key beliefs is "We value common sense over conventional wisdow", common sense doesn't always prevail. Conversations such as "You're not permitted to do X because department Y have said no", still exists.

    Incentives work well but are more targeted around those who work in sales roles (most of company).

    Technology still lags behind industry standards and the ambitions of data integration across the wider business can not be fulfilled until this is remedied. Confidence is low that this will change in the near future.

    New Malden - need I say more? The working hours for support - 42.5 hours is out of touch with industries relating to support roles.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Invest in change management. The company has a vibe of a start-up with it's agility when it shifts tact so quickly but with so many staff, it's painful to see the simplest considerations being missed and large groups of people being misinformed.

    Rely on both quantitative and qualitative data. We have an abundance of quantitative data but lack qualitative data from our customers and to some degree consultants on how they view our brands/processes/experiences.
