    Pros

    Nice people to work with.

    Cons

    Unorganized. Severe Lack of communication. No consistency in there policies and procedures. Nothing can be done without HQ's blessing. Local IT is only for hardware issues and limited software incidences, and If you have any type problem with company exclusive software, accounting, operations etc, open a ticket and good luck waiting for HQ to handle or even acknowledge that there is a problem. Any type of improvement that does not necessarily work for HQ but can work for the region is delayed and not given any type of priority. No anticipation to incidences even after possible scenarios are presented; HQ still does nothing until it happens. Spain HQ has way too much bank holidays so regions are left in the dark for those days even in emergency situations.

    Advice to Management

    Sell it to an OTA that knows what they're doing.

    Pros

    PTO days given are usually higher than most other companies.

    Cons

    Poorly Managed company internally. Satellite offices are at the mercy of headquarters which are not very helpful in answering questions about procedures they set. Very slow at implementing changes and most staff level concerns fall on deaf ears with management. Ungrateful company that does very little for their employee and employee satisfaction is at the bottom of their priority list. Expect being overworked but don't expect to grow since opportunities are usually reserved for people in Spain who pretend to be smart individuals.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your staff for adequate improvement.

    Pros

    Very helpful colleagues, always there to help each other out.
    Relaxed, semi-informal culture makes everyone feel approachable

    Cons

    Slow to implement changes
    Feels like the company is unwilling to adapt/accept the vast cultural difference between each Asian countries and their method of business.
    Newer employees seem to receive significantly higher salary, long serving employees do not get their salary matched.

    Advice to Management

    Recognise the skills and interests of your staff by not making them switch roles they would rather not.

    Pros

    Extremely dynamic. Great atmosphere. With opportunities if you are willing to jump out of your comfort zone.

    Cons

    Lack of ownership and lots of bureaucracy makes it far from agile. Tough for a newbie. Difficult to go up on the corporate ladder.

    Advice to Management

    IT needs a complete overhaul.

    Pros

    The company has some entrepreneurial people who have good ideas. Some department are performing better then others. Good on creating ideas and brainstorming. You can wear flip flops and sandals in the summer and holiday clothes all year round.

    Cons

    Majority of Directors (in the company for years) are at the level (performance, strategy, vision) lof managers. They didn't see anything apart from Mallorca. High level of hierarchy: the big office, separate carpark place and ... a chair with white top are your attributes of power. The top management far away from the middle management challenges. Don't know which project to focus on, change the direction and creation of a lot of work. The few people experts in their fields and ready for change exhausted with the contant change of stockholder's briefs. Level of sexism, as a female you will be scanned top down regularly.

    Advice to Management

    Get rid of the poor and under performing employees. You see, there will be no change next day. Watch out for nepotism, half of Palma is hired there. What are your values? State them and foster them like a mantra every day.
