Pros

Fantastic atmosphere, environment and culture. I have the freedom to be creative in my role, try new things and am given the support and encouragement to develop and learn - something I've not had before and absolutely love! They have an amazing flexible working which means I can still be there for my family without having to worry!

Cons

i haven't got any cons I can think of.

Advice to Management

Keep doing what you're doing :)

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

    Pros

    Holiday Extras are like no other company I've worked for. The freedom you are given with regards to working, ranging from working from home, to hot desking is great. The personal development budget is generous, and the opportunity to learn from resources, both internal and external is highly encouraged.

    From day one, you feel like part of the team. Everyone - without exception - is friendly, and approachable? I imagine if you asked the CTO for a chat about an idea, they'd be more than happy to oblige.

    The campus is open, spacious and has all the mod cons.. Showers for the more active of us, a sandwich stall serving freshly made food at lunch, table tennis, a pool table, foosball, a small library, and great room outdoors for recreation or relaxation during down time.

    Events are put on often, consisting of sports days, lovely lunches (hog roast, BBQ, etc), and I'm told the yearly party is a sight to behold!

    Benefits are ample, including profit share, corporate benefits (money off at high street and online shops and services). Training / conferences can be applied for in any field that is of a benefit to the company, or your personal development.

    Located right off of exit 11 of the M20, and about a mile from the nearest train station, traveling to work is very easy for us south coast folk, even if you don't drive.

    After only being here 6 weeks, I can't imagine being anywhere else. I've already learned a lot, and look forward to going to work each morning.

    Cons

    I can honestly say that in my time with HX, I cannot fault them. They really are an amazing company to work for.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the great job! The transparency provided in the shout outs is very refreshing - knowing we're making a positive contribution to the business, and helping it grow only motivates us to work harder!

    HX - you rock!

    I have been working at Holiday Extras full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Holiday Extras is a very people driven creative environment, you are given the freedom and confidence to do what you think is the best solution to any problem, including picking the best tech for the job. Also a very strong no blame culture means people don't feel worried about messing it up first time.

    We also have a free day for R&D every other week meaning we get more time to play around with new things and learn.

    Cons

    Because of our location we can sometimes struggle to attract people, as we are based in the countryside.

    I agree that people don't feel worried about messing it up. Thats really important. Part of being a leader in our field is that people feel that they can be brave, have a go, and if it doesn't work ... More
