    I have been working at TUI Group full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    You get great opportunities to travel to amazing places. The time off benefits are amazing.

    Cons

    Some management decisions seem to take forever due to indecisiveness. I've been here more than a year, and haven't received a raise because the company's about to be sold.

    Advice to Management

    Incentivize employees with raises!

    I have been working at TUI Group full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great products and plenty of opportunity for people to do great things.

    Cons

    Too many inexperienced/poor managers get hired long enough to change direction, make a mess and then leave the company. There are many legacy employees who just don't have the chomps for making decisions about digital presence and IT. Lack of coordination and forward vision results in projects not getting finished or getting delayed.

    Lack of proper planning results in overworking employees.

    Advice to Management

    Consolidate your technologies among brands.
    Identify those employees who are most talented and treat them as such.
    Move T1 roles to those employees who are best suited for support.
    Better project management
    Get developers to leverage cloud tech vs going with 'whatever the vendor says'
    Stop relying on vendors so much. This is why you lack internal talent.
