    I have been working at BookingGo full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - Everyone comes together from different departments to help each other, which is brilliant.
    - The benefits package which we receive is just amazing and this continues to grow with the amount of new stuff which gets added to it constantly.
    - The Leadership Team reached out to everyone for the "Your Voice Survey" (This means we completed a survey based on our experiences at BookingGo and what could be improved). They have listened and are in the process of making changes, which is nice to see an organisation taking on board ways to make BookingGo a better place to work.
     - Having any kind of issues inside or outside of work and having people from all levels happy to listen, guide and help you is something i really value about BookingGo.

    Cons

    Listening to Wayne's singing on the floor, I'm only joking. There are no cons working for BookingGo, it is a fantastic place to work.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the good work.

    Pros

    Amazing colleagues, good opportunities to progress, free breakfast, fruit coffee and juice, lots of training material for personal development. Encouragement to attend career snapshots is always given and these snapshots are always full of information regarding that role and what you need to get there. I find this very beneficial as it gives me an idea of where I want to head and also shows you whether or not that role is for you. Everyone is friendly and takes care of each other, its more like a very large family than it is a business. Mental health is taken into consideration and is cared about, People offer there time if you are going through a rough time. Someone is always available for a chat.

    Cons

    Communication lacks from higher management, I don't know about anyone else but I like to know whats going on within the business, how we're doing and the place we're heading as a company. The all business updates provide some of this information but I feel they do not included everything. Certain rules apply to certain people around the business and most managers will be scheduled for one break but if they smoke best believe 5-10 smoke breaks will be taken. Where as for a Customer service agent, this would be like committing a crime. Rules should apply to everyone and not just certain people as this is not fair.

    Advice to Management

    Communicate with your staff better, provide infomation to every staff member to ensure they see it and received (via email) rather than posting it to Workplace and expect everyone to read it, not everyone uses workplace all that often. Provide maximum information rather than minimal.

    Pros

    Team Work - People who care about the customer and the business
    Committed staff, at all levels, who live and breathe the company values.
    Great opportunities, across the whole business, so ability to build a career, for those who want to.

    Cons

    Due to the size of the business, we are now split across 4 offices in Manchester and 1 in London, so hard to come together, as 1 - Need to work on collaborative working across sites

    Advice to Management

    Keep making this a "Great Place To Work" and make this the #1 company to work for.

    I have been working at BookingGo full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    1) The people - both agents and managers are the ones who make this place exceptional. Such a friendly, fun and chilled atmosphere. I have made some really good friends during my time.
    2) Growth - expanding departments means prospects for progression within the company. There is so many internal vacancies coming up which allows to move between departments, gain new skills and pay rise
    3) Location and benefits - central location, new building coming up, Perkbox

    Cons

    1) The system is sometimes a bit unreliable and it can get a bit frustrating if you are trying to do your job

    Pros

    Freedom to make a difference and define your own path in the businesses as taking ownership is such an important part of working here.
    The speed of change and challenges that go with such rapid growth are amazing to work with and shows just how bright the future is...

    Cons

    Same as everywhere else i have seen that's grown so quickly (and continues to) - a need to focus on the horizon a bit more than our feet.
