I have been working at Holiday Extras full-time (More than a year)

Pros

Management care, not only about you personally but also your progression. They're willing to invest in you then reward you when you excel.

There is a large amount of money invested into small events ( usually including free food and drink :) ) scattered throughout the year, additionally more practical benefits such as a private pension scheme etc.

The workload is nonstop as you would expect with a company that is constantly growing, but is managed well to avoid stress. The offices are lovely and modern, chill out spaces and lots of free coffee and hot chocolate machines!

Cons

Pay is a little under, but improving with salary matches to local companies.
I personally feel sometimes the pod system gets in the way of being as productive as possible.
There are no deal-breaking cons.

Advice to Management

Keep it up, you guys do a brilliant job.

    I worked at Holiday Extras part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Can be very chilled out depending on who you work with
    Fun atmosphere at times
    Pay is good

    Cons

    Increasingly micro-managed by staff
    High turn over of staff on the phones
    Seems like team leaders/management aren't always helpful (ones that aren't on the phones)
    Some were reluctant to go on the phone and help when it was busy
    Very target heavy/driven
    Lack of opportunity to move in the company

    Advice to Management

    Less focus on targets. Become more helpful (Staff that are off the phones)
