    Former Employee - Senior Web Designer - Team Leader in New Malden, England

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at FCM Travel Solutions full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Team culture and egalitarianism are the core values of Flight Centre and which for the most part were not just statements but actual working practice in the company. Theoretically, the lowest level employee was on the same level as their boss, or any boss in Flight Centre, and could speak to them if they needed too. Catchups with 'Team Leaders' were regular and monthly pay were based on performance of the individual,...

    Cons

    Best described as soul-destroying. Despite being the Senior and Team Leader, I was a cog in a wheel.

    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

    I have been working at FCM Travel Solutions full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Depending on the accounts, the pay is great as there is uncapped commission.

    Cons

    Many changes. Lots of One Best Way which means one specific person decides the best way for each team to conduct business regardless of the type of accounts they have. It's becoming more and more like a call center than an agency that gives you perks for building clientele and providing excellent customer service.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to front line agents. They know what the clients want.
