    I worked at TUI Travel

    Pros

    Opportunity for world travel with access to a variety of roles at mid management level. Friendly work environment and hard working overseas staff.

    Cons

    Long hours with very little chance of upper management promotion. UK departments and UK office procedures not as innovative or hard working as overseas staff.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tui needs to be more flexible in today's travel market and not try to fit all sectors of the company into a 'Thomson Holidays' box - There is more to TUI than Thomson!

    I have been working at TUI Travel

    Pros

    Opportunities to work overseas and meet like minded colleagues and be part of a large organisation.

    Cons

    Promotions overseas which are not advertised and "kept under wraps" are given to "friends", favouritism within the group, lack of information from management towards members of staff, general lack of "duty of care" towards staff wellbeing.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Regularly ensure that senior resort staff are moved to other destinations to avoid complacency in the workplace. A better "vetting" process of senior management on a regular basis would not go amiss! A clampdown on managers and senior management expenses would be revealing!

    Good, but not great. Competitive benefits but offices are uninspiring and little culture.

    Pros

    Good benefits and competitive salary, generally good atmosphere in office, nice people to work with, great internal communications.

    Working hours are great.

    Working for TUI Travel is working for a market leader

    Cons

    Hierarchical system means it is very difficult to get things done. Location of offices isn't great. Very political environment. Salary reviews are rubbish. Little company culture or social life due to location.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Internal sign off is a nightmare and slows down the rate of movement across the company

    Pros

    Location, training, availability of management, chance to learn different job skills and even another language.

    Cons

    I worked for 18 months with one day off a week, no weekend, no holidays and became completely exhausted- when I asked for a weeks unpaid leave it was not granted! Our manager said this was because we were not hitting target as a resort- no wonder-none of us had had a break!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I believe after I left the reps in Mexico were thereafter given holidays, please ensure this keeps happening!

    Pros

    You get the feeling that you are an important part of the company, no matter what role you are in. Management make sure that you get recognised and rewarded for good work and there are always opportunities to progress in the company. There is a great lifestyle away from work and you get to see and experience some amazing places around the world, not to mention all of the people you will meet along the way.

    Cons

    The job can be quite demanding and in some resorts you can find yourself really stretched due to staff shortages. Some managers will get stuck in and help out with any task but others can be very distant and leave some team members neglected.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Make sure that management are prepared to help out at lower levels when required.
