No opinion of CEO

Pros

Allowed to work autonomously and judged fairly on results by a competent line manager (Product Director). Ideas could be implemented quickly.

Cons

Location - company has been around a long time and has churned most of the decent work force in the area. They suffered from a reluctance to promote from within (may have changed since TC taken over).

    I worked at Gold Medal Travel full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent training - really detailed and committed training by the guy who spent weeks with us going over the booking systems.
    Very smooth introduction into the sale floor and a supportive team.

    Cons

    Targets quickly become unattainable
    Work is incredibly tedious, just taking endless enquiry calls.
    No much earning potential, uninspired colleagues.
    Humdrum

    Advice to Management

    The training was really great guys, I can't remember the name of the older guy who trained me up but he was a pleasure to work with.
