Pros

Das Arbeitsumfeld bei Thomas Cook ist sehr freundlich und der allgemeine Ruf des Unternehmens ist sehr gut. Mitarbeiter scheinen glücklich mit ihrer Arbeit zu sein.

The working environment at Thomas Cook is very friendly and the general reputation of the company is quite good. Employees seem happy with their jobs.

Cons

Die Arbeitsauslastung variiert erheblich, ich hatte das Pech, dort während eines langsamen Zeitraums zu sein. Aus der Perspektive eines Praktikanten sind die hierarchischen Strukturen sehr verwirrend.

The workload varies dramatically, I had the bad luck to be there during a slow period. From the perspective of an intern, hierarchical structures are very confusing.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Setzen Sie eine klare, einheitliche Kultur und Hierarchie durch.

Enforce clear consistent culture and hierarchy.

    Very friendly atmosphere and the overseas team are amazing. Great opportunities to work in different places around the world and be part of a great team who work hard and play hard.

    Cons

    Quite difficult to work in a destination you want to even if your score well on their monthly points system

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look at promoting hard working, loyal staff and offering further benefits

    Pros

    If you are lucky you will have a great cluster manager like mine, if not there are no other pros

    Cons

    Extremely bad salaries
    You never get appreciated for what you do for the company
    Aiming for the future but taking 1 step forward and 5 steps back
    Believes that hassling customers with a barrage of phone calls is good customer service
    Sacks people if they get another job, even if its part time
    Sexist, unfair and just a horrible place to work, where you will have no future and try your best for a below basic wage.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Sort yourselves out and start looking after your staff instead of the fat cats at the top.
