Current Employee - Head of Department

I have been working at Avios part-time

Pros

Really great place to work! From my experience, employees are treated really well with respect - plus really good benefits, Avios rewards and thank you's. Everyone has been supported really well... during the current pandemic - in terms of flexible working, having regular catch-ups and team quiz/socials/drinks via Teams. Really good comms especially during Covid pandemic - weekly floorplate with CEO and LT - great updates and really encouraged to ask Q's Great colleagues - everyone's really friendly, open to new ideas and being challenged! LT are very accessible and easy to talk to, so not a hierarchical company at all. Real focus on Diversity & Inclusion too which is really important to me and lots of others. And finally some great products and projects to work on with great Teams - so many opportunities!

Cons

Some old systems which are gradually being updated. Head Office is split across 3 locations which can be challenging to meet people/set up meetings, although using Teams is great so it's getting... easier. Still need more bit clarity on new vision for IAG Loyalty.

Advice to Management

Would be good to have an employee survey as haven't had one for few years - to hear recent views.
