    Pros

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

    Cons

    Senior 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 Management

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

    I have been working at TUI Travel full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Lots of committed staff who go above and beyond Holiday concessions after qualifying period

    Cons

    This is without a doubt the most hierarchical company I have ever worked for. Managers in my department seem to accentuate this much to the demoralisation of the majority. There is objective, charter and local strategy overkill which stifles creativity and ultimately just focuses managers on hitting targets and ticking boxes. Management styles seems to be stuck in a previous decade, trust your people to perform, park egos and old style management techniques at the door.

    Advice to Management

    Be serious about taming the hierarchy and you will instantly get a more engaged workforce. Internal communications should be sent out to everyone not just selected grades of employees.

    I have been working at TUI Travel full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The company is very driven and have a strong sense of where they want to be in a few years time. There is a free bus that takes you to the Luton office from Luton Airport Parkway station Theres a company monthly meeting which usually involves guest speakers and free goodies

    Cons

    I had a very very bad experience at TUI, from day one of joining I was made to feel like an outkast. A lot of people already have their friendship groups and so it is hard to actually become friends with people at work, not enough effort is put into social intergration from the very beginning. I also experienced a horrific manager who was the reason others had left in the past.

    Advice to Management

    When multiple staff members complain about one manager and even end up leaving because of this manager, then this means that this manager lacks in social skills and the ability to form positive relationships with coworkers. meaning that they shouldn't be a manager.
