Pros

Das Arbeitsumfeld bei Thomas Cook ist sehr freundlich und der allgemeine Ruf des Unternehmens ist sehr gut. Mitarbeiter scheinen glücklich mit ihrer Arbeit zu sein.

The working environment at Thomas Cook is very friendly and the general reputation of the company is quite good. Employees seem happy with their jobs.

Cons

Die Arbeitsauslastung variiert erheblich, ich hatte das Pech, dort während eines langsamen Zeitraums zu sein. Aus der Perspektive eines Praktikanten sind die hierarchischen Strukturen sehr verwirrend.

The workload varies dramatically, I had the bad luck to be there during a slow period. From the perspective of an intern, hierarchical structures are very confusing.

Advice to Management

Setzen Sie eine klare, einheitliche Kultur und Hierarchie durch.

Enforce clear consistent culture and hierarchy.

    Pros

    Wonderful people who show a passion. Dynamic organization that promotes from within where it makes sense. Great external development plan.

    Cons

    Checks and balances were weak. Subsidiaries not aligned to parent strategy. Salaries were below market averages.

    Advice to Management

    Leverage your core assets and look for partnerships to get you to the next level.

    Pros

    Free Accommodation.
    Working in the sun .
    You gain experience working within a demanding market and customer care in extreme situations.

    Cons

    Poor pay for the responsibility.
    Resulting in not being able to keep good members of staff.
    The commission rates are not transparent therefore the employees are demotivated.

    Advice to Management

    Carrot and the stick policy does not work when you have nothing to lose when the pay is so poor.
    Sometimes the experience provided of working abroad is not worth the hassle you get on the job.
