    Pros

    Het is een wereldwijd bedrijf met een heldere visie en hardwerkende werknemers. De werkatmosfeer is 'oke'.

    It is a worldwide company with a clear vision and hard working employees. The working atmosphere is 'ok'.

    Cons

    Het lijkt soms alsof iedereen voor zichzelf werkt en er is een heleboel druk om taken goed uit te voeren en de targets te halen.

    It sometimes seems everyone is working for themselves and there is a lot of pressure to perform and to meet the targets.

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

    Pros

    Relaxed atmosphere. People aren't very strict. Healthy work-life balance.

    Cons

    It can be hard to get things done, like working with HR and figuring out the bureaucracy.


  3. A complete overhaul of senior management+area managers to ensure fairness in the workplace .

    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 Management

    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!

    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 Management

    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 worked at TUI Travel full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Travel, living in wonderful locations, the chance to live in a completely different culture and have a life that isn't possible in the UK even for a season.

    Cons

    Management are a bit cliquey in the country I was in. I had wonderful managers in my winter roles, but a specific manager in the summer was not honest with me until she realised that I had an intention of continuing to work for the company for a longer time, at which point she made clear she didn't like me and thought I couldn't do my job despite me having been there for a year and a half already. At this point the whole experience took a turn for the worse and the enjoyment disappeared. It is impossible to continue working in a country where you know very few people when management are making your life hell, although other managers were very supportive it was never in front of the manager in question so at to not disturb the clique.

    Advice to Management

    Seasonal staff would stay more if their PDRs were taken seriously and dealt with honestly, the room for growth in the seasonal industry is great for those that want to utilise it, but not telling staff how you really think they are doing helps no-one.
