    I worked at Trafalgar full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I made some good friendships (all who have quit)

    Cons

    -Lack of respect for employees under Management -Lack of management skills all together -Petty work environment -They don't give raises, just "promotional raises" that are ultimately "cost of living raises" that's basically potato money -No career growth or work-life balance (even though it's encouraged)

    Advice to Management

    Revisit the security, career growth and appreciation you offer to your employees (or lack thereof) because the turnover rate is at an all time high for a reason

      I worked at Trafalgar full-time

      Pros

      There are interesting projects, but you aren't given autonomy to work

      Cons

      A culture of blame, lack of accountability and personal vendettas.

      Advice to Management

      Stop rewarding colleagues based on friendship and merit on their previous TTC experience. Trust and stand behind the decisions that are made and recommended by your team - don't use it as an excuse to osterize and talk negatively about people in your own team. Be constructive and pass on feedback, rather than leaving it to fester and escalate. Above all, realise that people want a professional working enviroment, ask...

      I worked at Trafalgar full-time

      Pros

      Pleasant colleagues, travel industry experience and travel opportunities after 1 year.

      Cons

      The turnover was extremely high across numerous departments, great professionals were treated poorly if they ever spoke up and challenged upper management on anything, individuals were also treated poorly by upper management in front of their colleagues, and unnecessary stress was visible. Certain departments clearly preferred to hire friends of friends, pushing away people who had devoted years of service. This was...

      Advice to Management

      The company has a poor reputation in Geneva for a reason… Speaking to previous colleagues, nothing has changed. Invite an external firm to assist you in turning this environment around.

      I worked at Trafalgar full-time for less than a year

      Pros

      Experience in the travel industry

      Cons

      All about hierarchy and who you know instead of appreciating hard workers. Bosses don’t care about their staff wellbeing and expected to work until the job is done instead of having a work life balance. Industry discounts not very appealing. Salary not competitive. Departments don’t like to mix. Technology is far behind.

      Advice to Management

      Change.

        I have been working at Trafalgar full-time for more than 3 years

        Pros

        Good team, sometimes work life balance

        Cons

        Really bad bullying culture driven by a new CMO who came into the business last year. It's been a bad turn with less leadership, more nastiness, noone protecting the team, noone knowing what's going on.

        Advice to Management

        Think about your people

        I worked at Trafalgar for more than 3 years

        Pros

        cannot think of anything at all

        Cons

        no proper orientation they expect you to learn all the products by your own very messy promotions terms and conditions to confuse customers and employees bosses think they are the biggest can come in late and leave early but all the employees cannot

        Advice to Management

        need to improve on usage of technology should ask the redundant staff who refuse to learn new things to move on
