Great Place to work.

Business Architect (Former Employee)
Crawley, West Sussex, South East England, England

I worked at TUI Travel

ProsGreat corporate culture. I worked in the head office as a business analyst and everyone from the cleaners to high level management had a commitment to the company and its goals. People working together on the surprisingly complex task of delivering quality hoidays to people at affordable prices. Full of really nice looking people (regardless of your preferences) as well!

ConsWhilst the corporate culture is great, the corporation as a whole was prone to fairly major and rapid mood swings. Things would seem to go from very positive to very negative dpending on individual news items and current world wide events. Admittedly I was there for the tsunami in which th company lost both clients and employees, however the reactive nature of the workplace went way beyond that understandble reactiuon to a shocking incident. Small news items would lead to big chnages in policy only to have them changed back again a few days later.

Advice to Senior ManagementA longer field of vision would lead to less corporate fire fighting.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

An international experience with many exciting challenges

Commercial Support Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at TUI Travel full-time for more than a year

Pros- international working environment
- opportunity to develop and try many different types of roles
- dynamic and result driven company

Cons- as it is a large organisation, the internal politics can be inefficient and time consuming
- although it is an international environment it is still challenging to move roles across businesses if you do not know the right people. (HR have limited visibility, motivation to work across businesses and markets)

Advice to Senior Management- continue to challenge yourselves
- evaluate/analyse cost savings and actions better and understand what their long term impact will be for the business

Great learning experience

Online Marketing and Sales Internship (Former Employee)
Düsseldorf (Germany)

I worked at TUI Travel as an intern for less than a year

ProsThe senior management was very supportive in its directions and in the leadership approach. Hierarchies are rather flat, which makes it possible to have your say in decisions.

ConsCareer development and perspectives for young talents should be put a stronger focus on by senior management, in order to keep employees motivated.
