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

    Pros

    Company are willing to be adaptable and try new things, I feel empowered to do my role and this gives me accountability and enables me to collaborate with others.

    Budgets are strong and the seasonal trends always make life interesting as each year is not the same.

    The company is fast moving when it decides to do something which is extremely refreshing.

    Management and sales figures are very transparent and everyone understands how they add to the end goal.

    Senior management are extremely approachable and you know that you're valued.

    Opportunities to travel to Channel Islands and France, with staff discounts and duty free.

    Cons

    Office could do with a lick of paint and more meeting rooms would increase collaboration.

    Lovely bunch of people to work with, around, and for.
    Value progression of current employees and will help with any training/external courses you may need.

    Cons

    Lots of (unjust) negative press - makes it hard to have pride sometimes.

    I worked at Condor Ferries full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Superb sea staff and port staff, more than 50% of executive directors are female, committed to providing high standards of service to Islands' community without government subsidy. Hard work but with good team spirit aboard and in the ports.

    Cons

    Must be prepared to accept ongoing, and largely unjustified, criticism of Company from members of the public . Senior management very competent but at times their staff communication does not come across as genuine

    Advice to Management

    You are almost there; however trust your teams and communicate with them better
