    The people are super nice and intelligent. Theyre all very welcoming and want you to succeed. Great autonomy for your role as long as you hit the targets.

    Unlucky timing with all the redundancies, however this could not have been predicted with COV-19

    I worked at OYO full-time

    Pros

    Flexible working times... if you could even call it that.

    Cons

    Literally everything. - They sign contracts with hotel owners, don’t pay them and then you’re left with your tail between your legs trying to salvage the relationship. - You’re contracted forty hours but you end up working eighty because you’re on call 24/7. - Staff are treated poorly and the HR department is a joke. - Upper management are a joke. - The company is a joke.

    The internal structure, a lot of people working very hard to keep the teams together.

    The company has been devastated by the Covid pandemic, such a massive loss of revenue will mean a huge cut in workforce via redundancies
