    Since the takeover of Hotelbeds the morale has be down as a number of operations have moved oversees leading to huge redundancies in London office. Shame as it used to be a great place to work

    Pros

    Friendly people, good training, good location, good infrastructure and work space, relaxed environment, polite managers, good mix job-personal life, no much extra time required, reasonable shifts, travel allowance

    Cons

    working weekends or bank holidays, very hard to ascend within the company, poor HR support in order to progress to better positions, many managers only got there because of their friends or keeping quiet but they are very inefficient or discontent with the job and company, the company is sold and bought constantly, departments open and close all the time, people left redundant all the time, projects started and then left unfinished, quite unstable in the long run.

    Cons

    I worked at GTA full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Good work life balance and decent perks (hotel and service discount)

    Cons

    Low skilled senior management that don't care about their employees or customers. The company values and people deal is a fad. Staff are underpaid. Poor reward system. Hiring and promoting for favoritism. The work is meaningless and does't provide value especially with having to use legacy system and follow redundant processes that the management doesn't want to deal with. Some managers and peers can be downright rude and bullies. They don't realize that power does not equal leadership. You have to earn the right to manage. Their new CX is just a structural change and a catch phrase, the management are highly inexperienced and incompetent and don't take responsibility, only keep passing the buck. This has been going on for decades. Senior management don't communicate important information and don't encourage growth.

    I worked at GTA full-time

    Pros

    A company with a great past and a great potential future. There are ample opportunities for those prepared to put the effort in and who are genuinely determined to work hard to make the company succeed. A time of change in the organisation which brings both pros and cons but for new employees, probably more of the former.

    Cons

    Poor working environment, with few benefits to the package (so negotiate that salary hard!) Recent restructuring shows poor recognition for the value of the people who were once deemed "the companies greatest assets"
