      Political and incredibly hierarchical but with good intentions and heart in the right place!

      Pros

      - really great people who work within Avios across the business - people are very smart and everyone is open to helping you out, supporting you and offering advice - pay was good - perks were good - work environment is really nice - lots of opportunity to take ownership on projects and initiatives - exciting time to be part of the travel sector with lots of focus on Loyalty - flexible workings meant you don't have to be in the office 5 days a week and you're actively encouraged to work from home and other locations (London, Heathrow, Gatwick). - there is a sense of everyone is in it together - no one is expected to come in at 9am and stay till 5:30pm

      Cons

      - The company holds such a wealth of experience and knowledge but the recent developments meant much of the responsibility around deployment, execution and ways of working firmly lay with the airlines Avios works with - who couldn't care less about Avios and Loyalty but just getting people to fly - there is a lot of politics and nastiness from the group businesses which Avios employees have to work with and it can sometimes take its toll. Especially when their bad behaviour (disrupting meetings, failing to attend session, failing to follow-up or sign off, misunderstanding propositions and mismanagement of marketing, pride, fear of being replaced and general shouting loudest to win) gets 'rewarded' with extra 121's and coffee catch-up's with the senior leadership team whereas you get pulled aside and scolded for the smallest intrusion into their 'space' - you do feel a little, sometimes that you're walking on egg shells around partner airline staff which isn't nice - everyone worked in the airlines and for years has been part of this problem, then get promoted into Avios and some how can't understand why things don't progress fast enough - you have to wait a really long time to get access to staff travel, but colleagues at the airlines get them same perk much sooner (this is fairly logical, but is still a tad annoying). - there is sometimes unrealistic expectations on delivery on items that are complicated and involve many stakeholders across the wider business

      Sadly a formerly friendly business going to pot

      Pros

      Friendly teams and great people doing their best and working hard in very challenging conditions. Decent salaries and benefits. Ability to work from home.

      Cons

      He who shouts loudest gets their projects through. No sense of business priority, the sales teams run around signing new deals and promising the earth without any reference to whether its technically feasible. Certain Senior Managers are building empires and trying to undermine other senior managers. No sense of collaboration at the upper levels with some bullying. No morale, christmas parties kept getting cancelled, IT Teams all on edge knowing that in the near future they will all lose their jobs and get pushed out at the behest of IAG.

      Pros

      Great People Accelerated change in the business and marketplace means plenty of variety in job content Great travel benefits Plenty of opportunities if you are willing to really challenge yourself Excellent learning opportunities and in house trainers Potential annual bonus payments A great approach to flexible working

      Cons

      Fast change may not be for everyone Occasionally speed is prioritised over quality in project delivery Additional Bonus KPIs affect annual bonus payments even in years of record profit which can cause some demotivation

      Pros

      Great atmosphere and culture! Was looking for autonomy in role and got this from my very first week! My job keeps me busy but I enjoy what i do and work with some great people. I also have lots of flexibility in my role which helps achieve good work/life balance. I feel that people are mainly rewarded and recognised for their hard work and passion - I personally feel very valued and engaged to go the extra mile.

      Cons

      Really need to invest in better systems although things are starting to improve.

      Pros

      Great people to work with. Very interesting field to work in. Great work benefits and work/life balance.

      Cons

      Many internal changes and restructures have happened in recent years which can cause work to be unpredictable. Priorities change very often, so it's difficult to understand the long term company vision.
