    Brilliant culture, but poor leadership at board level

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee) Crawley, West Sussex, South East England, England (UK)

    ProsWonderful atmosphere - far and away the best I've worked in.
    Flexible working.
    The travel perks are amazing - see the world in premium cabins!
    Looks great on your CV

    ConsThe board level directors are uninspiring and risk averse. Dinosaurs who go with the status quo.
    Decisions are made by committee.
    Very hard to get a promotion.
    Hierarchical - loads of people have offices who don't need them. Parking is impossible to get unless you're senior.
    Pay is poor.

    Advice to Senior ManagementRecruit from outside of travel.
    Get rid of all those GM offices, and create more meeting rooms.
    Make some long-term decisions rather than reacting at Trading meetings.

    Sales - Worldwide Travel Specialist

    Worldwide Travel Specialist (Sales) (Former Employee) Crawley, West Sussex, South East England, England (UK)

    ProsPart of the Virgin family which gives you access to discounts, free flights, and educational trips.

    ConsBig, corporate call centre run by try-hard youngsters who have no concept of the real world. Your time and tasks are micro-managed and daily work there is nothing like you would think Virgin would be.

    Advice to Senior ManagementQuit the call centre mentality for sales and think outside of the box to take advantage of the experience and ideas that your employees can bring.
