I worked at Contiki

Pros

Great co-workers, top notch HR department, casual dress work enviornment

Cons

Lack of imagination, creativity, poor management, extremely high employee turn-over.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Be more in tuned with your employees and sincerely care about employees' growth and advancement. The new Director of this department managed to turn around an entire team within 5 months because of unsatisfied employees, but yet she is still there. This proves how much Senior Management sincerely cares about their employees. The Director failed to provide guidance, long term goals, and direction to the department and is merely a do'er, not a manager. Planning is non-existent and works only on an ad-hoc basis.

    I have been working at Contiki

    Pros

    Great opportunities to travel and experience the world, Met really nice people from around the world, Can make a lot of money if you are a good Tour Manager

    Cons

    Disrespect towards employees personal life, Extreme disregard for personal safety of Tour Managers, Underqualified and distracted management (little interest in running a "great" company, as much as just getting the job done)

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Develop your good employees and listen to employee feedback, as tour managers are the representatives on the road. Contiki would prefer to have bad Tour Managers whose poor work performance endangers other staffmembers, poorly represents the company to vendors and staff then to develop strong employees because stronger employees are a greater threat to management. Take complaints seriously instead of blowing them off and endangering your employees and clients personal safety and health.

    I worked at Contiki as a contractor for more than a year

    Pros

    Brilliant people, very supportive supervisors. New well maintained coaches and excellent mentoring system. You meet some good people from all over the world.

    Cons

    Away from home a lot, but that's to be expected in this job. On occasion you will have to deal with drunk people.
    Coach cleanliness is very important to them and you will spend hours cleaning your coach.
    Training Trip is intense and trainers shout and treat you like children.
